Not sure how Kevin Durant feels about the statues standing in Virginia, but I’m pretty sure I know how he feels about the current sitting President in Washington.
That’s because Durant has confirmed that he will not be visiting the White House when his Golden State Warriors are invited there to be honored for winning the NBA title.
The NBA Finals MVP’s was enjoying himself in his hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland where they were celebrating—what else—Kevin Durant Day.
When asked by a reporter about politics, Durant bluntly stated that he won’t go to the White House as long as Donald Trump is president.
“I don’t respect who’s in office right now,” Durant offered. “I don’t agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that. That’s just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they’ll all agree with me.”
Although maybe he’s actually agreeing with them—as the Warriors team has not stated whether they have made a team decision about how they will handle the White House visit and even teammate Andre Iguodala--the Finals MVP back in 2015—said he doesn’t think the team should make the visit either.
Not sure which MVP the team is going along with.
But I’m pretty sure which POTUS they’re not going along with.
