The awkward moment generated many reactions on Twitter.

The Warriors celebrated their last NBA championship after rejecting President Trump in 2017 and 2018.

“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 a year ago,” Kerr said at a White House news conference. «It’s a great reminder of how lucky we are to be Americans, to live in a country where we can pursue our dreams and enjoy the fruits of our labor and the celebration of everyone around us.»
