There seems to be a question about whether the newly minted NBA Champion Golden State Warriors would decline a visit to the White House. But, the initial question should be, will they be invited?

It's become customary for the title-winning team in America's big four sports to receive an invitation to Pennsylvania Avenue in celebration and recognition of their success. You may remember the NFL's New England Patriots recently made a trip to the White House, where star tight end Rob Gronkowski ''interrupted'' a Sean Spicer press briefing.

Warrior's owner Joe Lacob was asked about a potential White House visit on ESPN's 'First Take' on Tuesday morning, just hours after his team completed a 16-1 postseason to win their second championship in three seasons:

"I can't believe we're getting this question already," Lacob said. "But honestly, that's something we'll worry about at the time. That's a long time from now."

The team later issued a statement saying they'd make a decision on the topic ''when and if'' it was necessary.

As ESPN noted, head coach Steve Kerr publicly stated after the 2016 presidential election that he was disappointed with the result, considering Donald Trump's 'racist, misogynist and insulting words' leading upto the election, he said.

Based on Kerr's words and how President Trump has responded to some of his critics, I'm interested to see if the Warrior's ever get that invitation.
