The last time there was an NBA Championship parade in the Bay, it was 2015; the Warriors had just won their first title in 40 years [making it their fourth in history] and nearly 1 million showed up to rally through the streets. Now, in 2017, the Dubs will actually follow the same parade route as 2015 and more 1 million more are expected than two years ago.
Following their victory over the Cavs on June 12, Warriors fans filled the street in Oakland for one massive dance party. About 1,000 people celebrated in the streets, climbing on cars and streetlights, and some even spraying champagne. And, the celebrations will continue in Oakland today! Be sure to catch all of the action by visiting the above links! Congrats to the Dubs!
