The NBPA responded to the White House not inviting the Warriors by saying it "defends its members' exercise of their free speech rights against those who would seek to stifle them. The celebration of free expression - not condemnation - is what truly makes America great."

Adam Silver is disappointed that the Warriors will not be invited to the White House but he's proud of his players taking a stand. "I was in favor of the team visiting the White House and thought it was a rare opportunity for these players to share their views directly with the President," Silver said in a statement. "I am disappointed that that will not happen. More importantly, I am proud of our players for taking an active role in their communities and continuing to speak out on critically important issues."
