Every time the undermanned Spurs looked to challenge, Golden State was able to flick the switch and score heavily through Durant and Steph Curry - something they were also able to do easily during the Finals against Cleveland.
It's the team's second title in three years, and the last time the Warriors held a championship parade in 2015, there were about 1 million people witnessing the events. For those of you who can't, here's how you can live stream the Golden State Warriors parade. The Warriors are also headed to San Francisco, where they broke ground this year on a new arena slated to open in 2019.
Residents of Oakland, which recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, are still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire. This offseason will give the other 29 teams a chance to make changes with hopes of celebrating a championship just like the Warriors did. "I told him we tied up now, and we going to try to do this thing again" said Durant on facing James again.
Warriors guard Klay Thompson was throwing T-shirts to fans and waving from the top of an open, double-decker bus.
Curry rode with his wife and kids beside him.
Here's some background information about the NBA Finals.
Surely Kevin Durant, the newly-minted NBA Finals MVP who joined the Warriors after their record 73-win season, has a different take on his own championship squad.
After, all if he doesn't he will be losing in the Finals for years to come and I'm pretty sure Lebron and the rest of the National Basketball Association doesn't want that. "As we go into talks and this whole process - which is obviously new for me - I will approach it as getting the most I can as an individual, as a player, something I've been working for a very long time".
A report surfaced Tuesday that the team had chose to decline a visit, but the Warriors released a statement saying no decision has been made because they haven't received an invitation from the White House. The rally at the south end of Lake Merritt will start around 12:15 p.m.
Warriors forward Draymond Green appeared to take some shots at the Cavs. However, the Cavs aren't that type of team and due to their affinity for veteran players, it's unlikely they can acquire a player who can dominate at the forward position in the way they'd need.
LeBron James said earlier this week that he's never played for a super team. It started with the Miami Heat bringing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together, a trio that made four consecutive NBA Finals, winning two of them.
