It was a joyous day in Oakland yesterday as the Golden State Warriors celebrated their first NBA championship in 40 years with a two-mile victory parade. Come inside to see the team, including NBA MVP Steph Curry and his adorable daughter Riley, celebrate their victory inside….
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers (105-97) during Game 6 on Tuesday making them the 2015 NBA Champions (and one of the biggest nights in #Dubnation history). And now, it’s time to celebrate!
Yesterday, the city of Oakland came out in full force to party it up with the Warriors on their first NBA championship in 40 years! The parade kicked off on Broadway at 11th Street and carried on to a public rally outside The Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center.
The streets were covered in yellow and blue confetti as thousands of fans came out to cheer on Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala (who was named the Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player) and the entire team.
2015 NBA MVP Steph Curry held on tight to his shiny Larry O’Brien Trophy as the parade kicked off.
He was joined by his wife Ayesha Curry (who’s expecting their 2nd child in a less than 2 months) and his cute daughter Riley Curry (who has been stealing the spotlight during the season) on the deck of the victory bus.
Peep Riley keeping busy collecting confetti:
Super Bowl champ and Oakland native Marshawn Lynch also came out to celebrate:
While Riley collected confetti, her pops was busy showing off his championship trophy. Nothing like the sweet taste of victory:
2-year-old Riley joined her pops on stage as he spoke a few words during the rally.
And all the excitement wore little Riley out. Awww….
Congrats again to the Golden State Warriors!
