“On behalf of the Warriors, I want to thank President Biden and Vice President Harris for the invitation to come to the White House today to celebrate our championship from a year ago,” said head coach Steve Kerr. “It’s a great reminder of how lucky we are to be Americans, to live in a country where we can chase our dreams and enjoy the fruits of our labor and the celebration of all those around us.”

Curry was more direct in his praise, saying, “Great opportunity for us in the basketball community to thank President Biden and his staff for all their hard work and care in bringing home Brittney Griner, who is important part of our basketball family.”

Griner spent 10 months in a Russian prison

Just last month, the WNBA player landed back in Texas after spending 10 months in a Russian prison.

This thanks to a prisoner exchange between the two countries, after many days of exhausting conversations.

“It means a lot to know that she’s here, at home safe with her family. And all the work that went on behind the scenes to make that a reality,” continued Chef Curry.
