NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Friday the league office will never force a championship team to visit the White House regardless of the sitting president. 

TMZ Sports provided comments from Silver after the Golden State Warriors skipped the trip to see President Donald Trump at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue after winning the NBA title each of the past two years.

“It’s a team decision, so we’ll see who the champion is this year, and what they decide,” he said.
