A's players - and President Obama - congratulate Warriors on winning NBA title
The Golden State Warriors wrapped up their NBA Championship on Tuesday night, taking down the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 to clinch their first title since 1975.
The Warriors' exciting postseason run caught the attention of their Oakland neighbors, the Oakland Athletics, who showed their support on social media, redecorated their apartment as an example of 'Warriors Ground' and even entertained Warriors star Klay Thompson at a game at the Coliseum.
On Tuesday, several A's players hit Twitter to vocalize their excitement about the game. Here are some tweets from Josh Reddick, Sean Doolittle, Mark Canha, and Stephen Vogt to that effect:

But that's not all, as even President Obama got into the act:
It's been a miraculous season for the once-maligned Warriors, and their Coliseum Complex neighbors definitely seemed to enjoy the ride.
