Golden State Warriors celebrate with their fans
It’s been 40 years since the fans of the Golden State Warriors celebrated an NBA Championship. On June 16 the Warriors faced the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game Six of the NBA Finals. They led the series 3-2, but when the game was over Golden State had it’s 4th win and the NBA Championship.
On Friday, June 19, the Warriors held a parade through Downtown Oakland, CA and a rally on the shores of Lake Merritt. Below is my video report from the event.
