The Warriors players-only meeting with former president Barack Obama’s was arranged by Stephen Curry, according to a team official. But it was meant to stay private, rather become a political statement.

The defending NBA champs famously refused to stop by Donald Trump’s White House last year.
“It was good,” said forward Draymond Green. “Private team meeting and team event.”
“I have no idea,” added Warriors guard Stephen Curry when asked how the event came together.
Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, chatted with Curry after the game for a couple of moments before getting a selfie with the two-time MVP.
“It was amazing,” Warriors All-Star forward Kevin Durant said following Thursday’s 126-118 win over the Washington Wizards.
