Warriors Take Photo With Former President Barack Obama While in Washington D.C.

The Golden State Warriors saw a few politicians while in Washington D.C. to play the Wizards.

The Warriors were in Washington D.C. on Thursday, and prior to picking up a 126-118 win over the Wizards, they paid a visit to former President Barack Obama.

The team previously visited with Obama while he was the acting president after they won the 2015 NBA title.

During last season, the team declined to visit the White House to see Donald Trump and instead took a trip to meet with local children.

According to Ramona Shelburne of, Stephen Curry arranged the visit with Obama, but the goal was to keep it private.
