Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

On the other hand, Green told reporters that the t-shirt only reflects the Warriors' quick victory against the Cavs.

The down-on-its-luck city that always seems to take a back seat to San Francisco will get a rare chance to sit back and celebrate itself Thursday in a parade and rally for the hometown Golden State Warriors and their second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

According to reports, this year's NBA Finals averaged 20.4 million viewers for each of the five of the supposedly seven games.

LeBron James really didn't consider the Miami Heat or Cleveland Cavaliers a super team, saying that he has never been on a so-called super team. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant previous year. While another team may offer to pay him more, Iguodala reportedly "loves playing for the Warriors, loves the Silicon Valley connection, loves winning titles (which help out his potential Hall of Fame case), understands that he is extending his career by playing with so many stars, and if the Warriors step up with the number of years, this seems like a relative slam-dunk".

The latest clip includes similar visuals and the same soulful electronic score - and this time closes with four lines from Jay Z . As Jay Z once famously said on Kanye West's "Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)", "I'm not a businessman; I'm a business, man".

Jun 12, 2017; Oakland, CA, USA; Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) celebrates after winning the NBA Fianls MVP in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors have 10 free agents this summer, including Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, but neither superstar sounds as if he's going anywhere.

"Obviously as a team, we're going to have a conversation", he said.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant was on a different bus with his mom.

On Wednesday, the French government is to unveil a new anti-terrorism law, created to allow the state of emergency to be lifted. On Monday, police cordoned off a broad swath of the Champs-Elysees after the latest incident, warning people to avoid the area.

"I was expecting more", coach Steve Kerr told KTVU-TV, joking about the size of the crowd. But 16-1 is a pretty good postseason record.

Just like the Warriors nearly ideal run in the playoffs at 16-1, the parade seemed to be a success. One pregnant fan had painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach.

The parade will begin on Broadway at 11th Street, turning right on Grand Avenue, turning right on Harrison to 19th St, and right again on Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and proceeding to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center. Nor even because our faculty director, Dacher Keltner, sat in on a couple of Warriors practices earlier this season. Absolutely. With that said, Golden State's luxury tax bill could become rather insane in the near future and it would be in the best interest of the organization to lock up Iguodala for a potentially more lucrative deal on an annual basis while keeping the length of the contract to a two-to-three year number. Not if you ask Oakland.

"It's different just because of what happened past year to be honest", Curry said. After ending their year on a high note, the Cavaliers may of expected a chance of a playoff reunion with the Warriors, and it ended up happening.
