The Warriors Very Busy Trip To WashingtonMonday night, the world champion Golden State Warriors defeated the New York Knicks 125-111, in the first game of a three-game Eastern Conference road trip. After the game, the Warriors traveled 200 miles south to our nation’s capital, checking into the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, for a three-night stay.

Warriors Staying At The Four Seasons Hotel Washington DC

Tuesday, in light of President Trump disinviting the team to the White House for the traditional championship team meet and greet with the president (Warriors had no problem with Trump’s decision), Golden State brought 40 kids from the Seat Pleasant Activity Center to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, located on the National Mall, near the Washington Monument.

Kevin Durant grew up in Prince George’s County, Maryland (just across the eastern border of DC) and frequented the activity center as a youth.  

Wednesday night, the Warriors defeated the Wizards 109-101, at Capital One Arena, with 30 kids from the Seat Pleasant Activity Center in attendance. After the game, Bay Area politicians Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee met with the team outside the arena’s visitor’s locker-room.

Thursday, prior to the club’s two-hour flight to Atlanta, the Warriors held practice at Georgetown University’s John R. Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletic Center, one mile west of the Four Seasons.

After the practice session’s conclusion, head coach Steve Kerr resumed his ongoing war of words with President Trump, a mere 2.5 miles from the White House.
