Warriors NBA championship parade: Stephen Curry, Golden State celebrate 2022 title with fans in San Francisco

The Golden State Warriors are NBA champions for the fourth time in the last eight years, and now have seven titles in franchise history. Stephen Curry led the way in their 4-2 series win over the Boston Celtics, earning his first-ever Finals MVP. Curry finished the Finals averaging 31.2 points, six rebounds, five assists and 5.2 3-pointers made per game en route to his fourth NBA title.

For the first time since relocating from Oakland to the Chase Center in 2019, the Warriors and their fans held their championship parade through the streets of downtown San Francisco to celebrate the 2022 title. The parade was 1.4 miles long and there was no lack of excitement. A fiery speech by Draymond Green marked the tip off, followed by goats -- literally and figuratively -- celebrating on the street. The event closed with Klay Thompson's bus being followed by what appeared to be half of San Francisco. 

Check out the highlights below to relieve the Warriors' 2022 NBA championship parade.

Bob Myers said Warriors were "buried"

The Warriors general manager talked to NBC Sports about why this championship feels different:

"I think because we were kinda buried. We were six feet under, worst record in the league. Climbing back out of that is pretty gratifying. We went from being the team that was supposed to win, to a team that nobody thought would win. To get it done under those circumstances, it feels good."

Steph Curry is "not used to this"

Curry just earned his fourth championship ring, but the Golden State point guard and 2022 Finals MVP said on the broadcast that he is still not used to this feeling:

"It never gets old. The fact that we get to celebrate another championship after what we've been through the last three years, doing it with this group and be out here celebrating with this fanbase… this is unbelievable, can't get used to this."

Steve Kerr didn't see it coming

The Warriors head coach admitted on the broadcast that winning the trophy this year was a nice surprise:

"Incredible. When we first started camp, I thought we were pretty good but I didn't know we could win the whole thing. To be sitting here, enjoying the parade and feeling the love of the whole Bay Area, is pretty incredible."
