[Ed. – All class, dudes.]

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors missed out on a White House visit for the second year in a row, meeting instead Thursday with former President Barack Obama rather than President Trump.

Pro sports teams are traditionally invited to the White House after winning championships, but Trump rescinded the offer to the Warriors in September 2017 after stars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant made critical remarks. Curry and Durant said their team wasn’t planning on visiting Trump anyway. …

An Instagram photo posted by the Warriors on Thursday, and later deleted, showed  the team meeting with Obama before the team’s 126-118 victory against the Washington Wizards in the nation’s capital. The players spent about an hour with the former president.
