Warriors will decide soon on White House visit

OAKLAND, California (AP):

Coach Steve Kerr expects the Golden State Warriors to meet as a group in the coming days to decide whether to visit President Donald Trump's White House as NBA champions.

General manager Bob Myers said the Warriors have had discussions with the White House, and Golden State owner Joe Lacob also will be involved in the decision.

"I don't know what we're going to do," Myers said. "It's not as clear as, well I assume some people think it is and some people think it isn't."

Stephen Curry has been outspoken about not attending, saying at media day yesterday, "I don't want to go ... my beliefs stay the same." NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant has taken the same stand.

Bayern let two-goal lead slip

BERLIN, Germany (AP):

Bayern Munich let a two-goal lead slip at home in the Bundesliga as they were held 2-2 by struggling Wolfsburg yesterday.

First-half goals from Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben counted for little as Bayern dropped points for the second time in six games following a lacklustre performance.

New Wolfsburg coach Martin Schmidt celebrated as if his side won. Schmidt, who replaced the sacked Andries Jonker on Monday, has claimed just two points from his two games in charge, but his side showed marked improvement from his predecessor's.
