Steve Kerr Thinks Warriors Will 'Be Better This Year' with Added Depth

Despite the previous statements of his two most prominent stars, Warriors Coach Steve Kerr told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne on Thursday that a visit to the White House still is on the table.

As yet, Kerr confirmed that no such invitation has been extended by the Trump administration.
"Aren't we all?" Speaking of Andre, Kerr has Andre Iguodala returning this year, along with Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and most of the rest of the cast that won 67 regular-season games, then went 16-1 in the playoffs to win their second National Basketball Association title in three years.

Rumors have circulated for months that the Warriors would skip the White House visit.

The NBA has stayed in communication with the White House on the matter and it is believed an invitation would be extended if the team decided as a group to attend, according to ESPN.

The White House has a longstanding tradition of inviting championship sports teams to travel to Washington D.C. and meet with the president.

North Korea reacted sharply to the threat of trump
North Korea was scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly Friday night, but dropped off of its planned roster spot. This shouldn't be handled now, but I'm going to handle it, because we have to handle it.

"I think we'll be better this year", Kerr said (via ESPN). "It's a long haul, so we're going to have to navigate the season, pace ourselves but not lose our edge, and that's the balance we're looking for".

"I've talked to a couple of them about it", Kerr told ESPN. As a staff, we try to guide them on the floor. Durant told ESPN last August that he would not accept any invitation to meet with Trump.

"Nah, I won't do that", Durant said. Even if there's a player in that locker room who wants to go - and I'm not sure there is - who has the clout to stand up to those three?

"I don't agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that", said Durant, who said it wasn't an organizational decision. Last April, the reigning National Football League champion New England Patriots were the first team to make the trip since Trump assumed office.
