Reports emerged on Tuesday morning that the NBA champion Warriors had already opted out of a visit to the White House, a decision the team is now denying ever happened.
2017 MVP Kevin Durant led the Warriors to their second title in three years on Monday night when Golden State took down LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120. According to several reports, the Warriors unanimously decided soon after their victory celebrations that they would not visit President Donald Trump at the White House to commemorate their championship win — but the team has since said they have made no such decision.
“Today is all about celebrating our championship,” the Warriors stated in responding to a Business Insider request for comment. “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.”

Jimmy Butler took over in the fourth Wednesday night in Cleveland. He scored 10 straight points during a critical stretch and leading the Bulls to a 106-94 victory. James was fighting a head cold that’s been bothering him for 7 days, while Kyrie Irving (hamstring) & Kevin Love (sickness) sat out.

Butler who had 52 against the Hornets Monday, scored 14 of his 20 points in the 4th, as the Bulls snap Cleveland’s late 4th quarter rally and put a haunt on the Cavs 13 game winning streak.

“The Guy who wears #3 on this team came to me and was like, ‘win the game,'”Butler said. “So I guess a switch cut on. I knew I was going to have to do that in the fourth anyway, but with him telling me that, you can’t let D-Wade down.

“He’s been doing it for years. It was my time to set up.”

Bulls R. Rondo did not play for the 3rd straight game. There are talks that he could be traded.

Up next for the Bulls, the Toronto Raptors. The Bulls have won 9 in a row against the Raptors.
