The Golden State Warriors journeyed to the White House on Tuesday, to celebrate their championship win in 2022. After spurning President Trump in 2017 and 2018, the Warriors returned to the White House under the Biden administration. President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and longtime California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi welcomed the Warriors with open arms.

The Warriors have been a force to be reckoned with in recent years, winning three NBA championships in five years. This year’s championship victory was especially meaningful to the team, as they had struggled in 2020 and missed the playoffs in 2021, making their championship win all the more remarkable. During his speech, President Biden remarked that he could relate to the Golden State Warriors’ struggle, as his path to the White House was not an easy one. Vice President Harris, a native of Oakland, California, also shared a personal story about her own experience of trying to get to a Warriors game in congested Bay Area traffic.

Golden State Warriors Gifted Jersey

The Golden State Warriors presented President Biden and Vice President Harris with two custom Warriors jerseys, one for each of them. The jerseys were special, as they featured the number 46 to commemorate President Biden’s status as the 46th President of the United States. Warriors star Steph Curry, who has now won five NBA championships as a player and four as a coach, presented the jerseys to the President and Vice President and thanked them for the invitation.

The Golden State Warriors have always been at the forefront of social justice issues, speaking out against racism, standing up for equality, encouraging people to vote, and rallying against gun violence. President Biden commended the Warriors for their efforts, recognizing them as a “force for good.” The visit to the White House was a reminder of the importance of sports in bringing people from all walks of life together.

The Warriors’ visit to the White House was a joyous occasion, celebrating the team’s success on the court and their impact off the court. With five championships under their belt, the Warriors have cemented their legacy as one of the greatest basketball teams of all time.
