Warriors celebrate crown with street parade

USA TODAY Sports

The news that the team would skip the invitation from President Donald Trump for the annual photo op wasn't much of a surprise, this after Warriors player Shaun Livingston went on record saying he meant to skip.

Golden State Warriors fans are using the word dynasty to describe this year's championship team.

Thousands of fans turned out for the event, which featured a little smack talk through a T-shirt worn by All-Star forward Draymond Green.

After being sidelined for part of last season and again during the 2017 playoffs with back pain, head coach Steve Kerr returned during the Finals and said he intends to coach "for a long time".

The Warriors won their second NBA title in three years on the day Trump hosted Clemson's national championship football team at the White House, and the Super Bowl champion Patriots were honored there in late April.

Despite much of the outside chatter and detractors, Golden State stayed the course throughout the year that saw them hit stride in the final month of the regular season heading into the playoffs.

Parents drove their children to the parade as early as 2:30 a.m., while adults and pint-sized fans donned matching Warriors regalia.

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant hugs Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James after the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 to win the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland. "The things that he has done already in his presidency have not gone done well with a lot of the members of the Golden State Warriors", the 95.7 The Game Breakfast host said.

But on Thursday the city made headlines for good news.

Team owner Joe Lacob says he's willing to do "whatever it takes" to ensure Stephen Curry remains with the National Basketball Association champion?

"Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", Kerr told reporters in May.

"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick", Durant said. "Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together, the different kind of ceremonies and the traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams".
