For the second time in three years, Golden State Warriors fans got to line the streets of Oakland to celebrate another championship. And they were out early Thursday in the hopes of landing the best spots to take in the festivities, which drew an estimated 1.5 million spectators.
Warriors players reveled in the celebration, providing some unforgettable scenes. Here are the best photos from the victory parade.
Draymond Green couldn't pass up on a chance to take a jab at the Cavs, wearing a "Quickie" T-shirt that he revealed is his shot at the Cavs' home court — Quicken Loans Arena — and the speed with which Golden State dispatched Cleveland.
Ronnie Reyes, the man who famously asked Klay Thompson to autograph a Warriors toaster this season, took part in the parade thanks to Thompson, who extended the invitation. The Warriors lost just two games after Reyes asked Thompson for the signature in March, a request that left the Splash Brother very confused at the time.
After 10 years in the NBA, Kevin Durant got his chance to take part in a championship parade, holding his NBA Finals MVP trophy.
Fans were out in full force to catch a glimpse of the newly crowned champs.
Nike also chimed in on all the championship hoopla.
Oakland icon MC Hammer was in attendance, making his way through the city in a vehicle that looks like it was taken straight out of "Mad Max".
Bay Area baseball legends Rickey Henderson (center) and Barry Bonds (far right) took in the festivities with former Raider Willie Brown (left). Henderson has been a part of a Bay Area championship celebration, leading the Oakland A's to a World Series title in 1989. Bonds, on the other hand, retired without a ring.
Not the most conventional way to maneuver through a parade, but it no doubt looks like a blast.
Speaking of interesting modes of transportation ...
