POTUS Joe Biden hosts 2022 NBA champion Warriors at White House, labels Stephen Curry as “one of the great sportsmen of our time”

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, seemed to be a huge basketball fan and regularly follows the NBA. The Golden State Warriors were the victors of the last edition of the tournament, and following their six-match championship series against the Boston Celtics, President Biden invited the entire team to the White House on Tuesday.

The Warriors were flattered by the invitation, but it brought back memories of when Trump said Stephen Curry would not be allowed into the White House during the team’s customary celebration visit after the championship triumph because Curry had already shown disinterest in attending.

Fans did not approve of Trump’s decision, and so, being a wise president, Biden did not stick to the same approach and went on to counter it with his statements.

What did Joe Biden say at the event?

In the formal gathering, Joe Biden went on to talk about many important issues, including the Californians who have struggled in the ongoing destructive weather.

Regarding the weather in California, Biden said, “We’re all closely monitoring the storms, the floods, the landslides all across California, and our heart is with all of the families of the communities that are hurting.”

Afterward, the president resolved his predecessors’ mistake by approving the Warriors team and their star performer Curry. Joe Biden said, “The Golden State Warriors are always welcome in this White House,” before announcing Stephen as “one of the great sportsmen of our time.”

The president did not stop his flattering words there as he claimed that the Golden State Warriors “reflect America” with their “constant motion, with individual freedom and personality that comes together as one team, a team that plays with joy, with drive to be their best.”

Referring to the current average form with other key players missing out due to injuries, Joe Biden said, “The last couple of years were pretty tough. Critics wondered if this team was gone for good as a championship team.”

“Fellas, I know what it feels like,” he added, trying to indicate that he faced similar ups and downs like the team, yet he is the great nation’s- America’s president today.
