Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Friday that the team still hadn't decided what to do as a group if invited to the White House.

That decision was made for them.

Hesitation by two-time MVP Stephen Curry caused President Donald Trump to withdraw invitation to the White House.

Trump says if a basketball player doesn't want to visit the White House to celebrate an NBA title, then don't bother showing up. Curry told reporters on Friday: "I don't want to go ... my beliefs stay the same."

It's not immediately clear whether Trump was rescinding the invitation for Curry or the entire team. There had not been previous indication of a White House invitation for the Warriors, but it had been looking increasingly unlikely that the team would visit with Trump in Washington, D.C.
