Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

BART officials issued 10 tips for Warriors fans visiting the parade, including using the 19th Street station and avoiding the much smaller Lake Merritt station, buying a Clipper card to avoid long lines at ticket machines.

At the start, Curry took a back seat to let KD get comfortable. The 7-foot (2.13 m) small forward and 2017 Finals MVP has said that after his controversial decision leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors last offseason, he is not eager to move again.

For those who are driving all the way to Oakland, parking would be hard to find, so consider free parking at the Oakland Coliseum.

But if the Warriors want to keep this lineup intact, they won't be done spending money once they get Curry's situation settled because Durant can opt out of his deal this summer.

For those of you who aren't in Oakland or don't want to fight traffic, here are your options for online streaming or TV watching.

Stephen Curry rode with his wife and kids beside him.

They have a lot to cheer for.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time, ending with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.

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 in the finals.

The all familiar sinking feeling Warriors experienced last season after letting Cavs eviscerate their 3-1 lead, came back in full force.

"I think I answered I wouldn't (go), and I still feel like that today", Curry said Wednesday.

Oakland recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas in 2020, and the city is still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.

The Inglewood City Council unanimously approved an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday that could lead to the construction of an arena for the National Basketball Association team across the street from the future home of the NFL's Chargers and Rams.

"It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans", Durant said after the Warriors clinched the title. I might call him and say, "If they ask, just say our schedules conflicted".

But Thursday was a rare chance to celebrate.

The parade will go north on Broadway, turn right on Grand Avenue, then right on Harrison Street, turn left on 19th Street, continue on Lakeside Drive and end on Oak Street with a procession to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention center.

Green wore a t-shirt at Thursday's championship parade and rally in Oakland, California that read, "Quickie", with the "Q" styled to mimic the Cavaliers arena, which is referred to as The Q. Green told NBC Bay Area the shirt reflected the Warriors quick win over the Cavaliers.

Parking is expected to be extremely limited and fans are encouraged to use public transportation.
