Steve Kerr wants the Warriors to consider positive ramifications of going to Trump White House but admits they may not get invited over criticism

The Golden State Warriors may go to the White House after all if the players listen to their head coach, Steve Kerr.

“I would want to make sure the players gave this really a lot of thought,” Kerr said. “I do think it is very important to consider a potential invitation because I think it could have really positive ramifications if we did go. It’s a different way to look at it. I, like many of our players, am very offended by some of Trump’s words and actions. On the other hand, I do think there’s something to respecting the office, respecting our institutions, our government. And I think it can make a statement in a time when there is so much divide and everybody seems to be angry with each other. It might be a good statement for us to go and to show, ‘Hey, let’s put this aside, put all this partisan stuff aside, and personal stuff aside, respect the institution, and maybe even if one of you players wants to voice your concerns over what’s happening, what better opportunity to do so.’ That may be incredibly idealistic, but I would want to at least bring that up with our players as an option rather than just coming out and saying, ‘No way, I’m not going.'”
