If the Golden State Warriors are invited to the White House to celebrate their recent championship, you can count out Kevin Durant.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP, who is being honored in his hometown of Seat Pleasant, MD told ESPN he is not interested in attending a ceremony with President Donald Trump.

“Nah, I won’t do that,” said Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”

The Warriors visit the nation’s capital Feb. 28 to take on the Washington Wizards. The White House has not extended a formal invitation to the Warriors.
