NBA champions meet President Obama

<p>Last season’s <span class="caps">NBA</span> champions The Golden State Warriors followed up their win over the Washington Wizards with a visit to the White House on Thursday, with <span class="caps">MVP</span> Stephen Curry and company meeting with President Obama to celebrate their 2015 title.</p> <p>With the entire team setting the backdrop behind him, Obama said: “Folks are saying they are revolutionizing basketball. They are so good, they seem to be just breaking the game itself. And I don’t play anymore but I still know a little but about basketball, and this really is one of the best teams we’ve ever seen.”</p> <p>Obama later received a Golden State shirt with the number 44 in honour of the 44th President of the United States.</p> <p>But another number that would have been talked about at the White house was 51 – the ridiculous number of points Curry scored in his side’s victory against the Wizards the night before.</p>
