Bay Area fans rejoice after Warriors win another title

Bay Area fans rejoice after Warriors win another title

But this doesn't have to be a blow-it-up few months just because a year ago at this time the Warriors were adding Durant.There really weren't that many surprises in the Finals, from Durant stepping up to Klay Thompson heating up to James continuing his historic excellence to Irving eventually exploding offensively.The totality of the series wasn't really a surprise - Cavs great, Warriors a little greater.

"But obviously, as a team, we're going to have a conversation", Curry said.

The Warriors won in 2015, but then blew a 3-1 lead in the finals previous year and lost the title to the Cavaliers after posting the best regular-season record in National Basketball Association history. This is a moment that we all need to enjoy together, and nothing should detract from what we were able to accomplish together and the different kind of ceremonies and traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams.

Fans who gathered in Oakland, California, for Thursday's parade celebrating the Warriors Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers said they expected more championships from the team in the years to come.

Kerr said he was proud that the team "came back from the heartbreak of last year".

The Warriors went 15-1 in this year's postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games. The Warriors sailed through the 2017 playoffs with an unprecedented 16-1 record - their only blemish coming in Cleveland in Game 4 of the Finals when the Cavaliers produced an all-time record shooting performance to win by 21 points.

Warriors players on buses passed Cahambing and his family twirling T-shirts over their heads and waving to the crowd as blue and yellow confetti rained down. One pregnant fan had painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time. They have three MVP trophies split between two players, a perennial All-NBA defender, the best two-way shooting guard in the NBA, and the deepest bench in the league.

Spectators can line up for the parade and rally as soon as 5 a.m., and taking public transportation is encouraged.

Oakland is also losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, and the city is still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.

But on Thursday the city made headlines for good news.

The parade starts at 10 a.m.at Broadway and 11th Street downtown.
