President Obama - The Goldent State Warriors

Golden State Warriors Celebrate Their NBA Championship At The White House

The Golden State Warriors visited the White House on Thursday, in commemoration of their 2015 NBA championship and they had a ball. (pun intended)

President Barack Obama congratulated the team, cracked jokes, and began his remarks by expressing his disappointment that Riley Curry wasn’t there.

Now, let me begin by saying I was hoping that Riley Curry would be here today  to share the podium with me, but I guess I’m going to have to get media training some other day.

Jokes aside, President Obama praised the Warriors for their impact saying:

This is a great basketball team, but it’s a great organization, it’s a great culture. And these are outstanding young men. And some of them I’ve met before. Steph I’ve gotten to know a little better. They’re just — they’re the kind of people you want representing a city, representing the NBA, and the kind of people that you want our kids to be rooting for.

Watch the POTUS’ remarks below.

It looks like everyone had a great time.

If they keep balling like they are now…they’ll be back again next year.
