The Golden State Warriors brought Oakland it’s third championship win in the last four years. Though the Warriors swept the Cavs this year, Coach Steve Kerr said the fight to get back to the finals for the fourth year in a row made this championship the toughest win yet.
“Next year will be even tougher,” Kerr said.
Next year’s 2018-19 season will be the last they play at the Oracle Arena in Oakland before they return to San Francisco. Some of the team’s most dedicated fans showed up as early as 5 a.m. on Tuesday, June 12 to claim their parade-viewing spots.
