The Golden State Warriors visited President Barack Obama, a famed basketball enthusiast, at the White House on Thursday, producing inspired social media commentary.
The team stuck around the nation’s capital after their win on Wednesday against the Washington Wizards to celebrate their 2014-15 NBA championship with the president.
Yes, #dubnation was at the “House.”
From Yahoo Sports:
Obama praised the Warriors for their work both on and off the court, where he called them beautiful to watch and so good it’s almost not fair, and off it, citing their efforts in the NBA’s partnership with his administration on the My Brother’s Keeper mentoring initiative and in speaking out against gun violence, among other issues. And, as he’s done throughout his time in office, Obama took the opportunity to lob a few zingers the way of the defending champs, having a bit of fun both with and at the expense of his guests from the West Coast. To wit:
The president also expressed displeasure at the absence of Riley Curry, the Internet’s favorite daughter, notes Yahoo. But look at Obama’s big smile below in the White House photo:
