Golden State Warriors visit President Obama at White House

The defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors are in Washington DC today to visit President Barack Obama, as is customary for any championship team in a major sport. Of course, a known Chicago Bulls fan in the POTUS went out of his way to crack a small joke.

President Obama welcomed a player from the greatest team in NBA history. Then said it was great to have ex-Bulls G Steve Kerr there.

Needless to say, it looks like Steph Curry and his teammates enjoyed their day in the nation’s capital.
