The players did something they didn’t do two years ago.  They all jumped off their float and walked the parade shaking hands and taking pictures with the fans.  No one is more appreciative of the support of the city that the actual players, coaches and organization.

Last stop, is the ceremony and it never disappoints.

“It’s so nice to be back up here in front of you guys, waited two long years” said Steph Curry.  “I remember exactly where I was this time last year and it wasn’t a great feeling.  But everything we went through as a team, individually and as an organization makes this day so much sweeter.”

Draymen Green dropped the mic on his speech which addressed the SUPER teams.  The Warriors definitely have talent but being a super team didn’t really take flight.  Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson have yet to score 30+ points each in a game this season.  But maybe that’ll happen next year, in the meantime Golden State has an entire year to enjoy this sweet victory.

“They say Super team this, Super team that,” shouted Green.  “I’ve never played on a Super team.  You started the Super team bro!”
