Warriors Parade Basketball

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant, left, Stephen Curry, center, and Klay Thompson smiles during a parade after winning the NBA basketball championship Tuesday in Oakland.

The Golden State Warriors were invited on Tuesday to visit the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. by Reps. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, to celebrate the team's NBA Finals win.

The politicians sent a letter to Coach Steve Kerr congratulating the team for winning the finals two years in a row, citing "outstanding performance on the court" as well as "inspired leadership off the court."

Pelosi and Lee said of the team, "You continue to make the Bay Area and indeed the country deeply proud. We look forward to honoring your championship in the heart of our democracy."

Traditionally, the winning team visits the White House after their victory, but the Warriors declined to do so in 2017. President Donald Trump rescinded an invitation to Stephen Curry in a tweet on Sept. 23, 2017, blaming the move on Curry's "hesitation."
