Pelosi Floor Remarks in Celebration of Golden State Warriors’ NBA Championship
Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi delivered remarks on the Floor of the House of Representatives in celebration of the Golden State Warriors’ NBA championship, their third championship title in the last four years. Below are the Leader’s remarks:
Leader Pelosi. I’m very delighted to join my colleague from the Bay Area, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, in wearing the blue and the gold to celebrate the new American dynasty, the Golden State Warriors.
On Friday, as you probably know, the Warriors swept the great team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by LeBron James – what a magnificent athlete – all the more making the victory so sweet, to secure that 2018 NBA championship, their third title, the Warriors in [four] years.
This historic achievement secures Golden State’s position as not only the best team in the sport, but as an extraordinary force in ushering a new era of professional basketball and transforming the future of the sport. The Golden State Warriors are distinguished by both their talent and extraordinary team work.
The 2018 Warriors played with exceptional chemistry, intuitive brilliance on the court, dazzling America with their true strength in numbers. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, MVP twice in a row Kevin Durant played with extraordinary skill, strength and determination each making history in their own ways.
Golden State continues to make the Bay Area and America proud with their leadership both on and off the court led by extraordinary Coach [Steve] Kerr, indestructible he is. The Warriors honor our American values of equality, fairness and respect for all, with their words and their actions.
It gives me great pride to be a member of Dub Nation. Right Barbara, Congresswoman Lee? We are members of Dub Nation, and I extend my congratulations and extend an invitation to the Warriors – joining Congresswoman Lee who represents Oakland – we join in extending an invitation to the Warriors to once more come to the Capitol to celebrate this historic accomplishment.
On behalf of San Francisco, I extend well-deserved congratulations to the Golden State Warriors and yield back the balance of my time.
