    The Golden State Warriors will take a trip to the White House this week to celebrate their first NBA championship in 40 years.

    President Barack Obama, a basketball player himself, will host the Warriors on Thursday afternoon, honoring their six-game NBA Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers last June, the White House announced on Monday.

    The Warriors have continued to dominate the NBA this season. Last year's league MVP Stephen Curry has only improved this year, leading the Warriors to a record-shattering 24-0 start to the season. The team is now on track to break 1995-96 Chicago Bulls record for most wins ever in a season.

    Curry, along with teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, have been selected to play in the NBA's All-Star Game on Feb. 14.
