Check out the best photos from the Warriors' championship parade

Fans have spent the week snapping up championship shirts and hats as crews have been hanging gold and blue banners along the parade route.

The above, completed unsourced tweet set the madness off at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning less than eight hours after the Warriors won the title.

Many fans braved the pre-dawn darkness to stake a claim to a seat along the parade route or next to Lake Merritt where the team held a victory rally.

While the Warriors haven't formally met to discuss whether they will visit President Donald Trump's White House as is customary for championship teams, Curry said his mind hasn't changed from when he was asked earlier this year about the possibility.

James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant a year ago.

Championship sports teams visiting the White House is an entirely useless tradition that was very occasionally practiced as far back as the 1860s.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry hoisted the Larry O'Brien trophy as his family, including wife Ayesha and daughters Riley and Ryann, celebrated the National Basketball Association championship.

Amazon to acquire Whole Foods in $13.7 billion deal
The app would then have automatically charged whatever products they took out of the store with them to their Amazon account. Whole Foods , which has more than 460 stores in the United States , Britain and Canada, has a lot of brand power.

Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade.

But the largest cheers rocked through the high-rise buildings for NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant and two-time league MVP Steph Curry.

Kerr said he was proud that the team "came back from the heartbreak of last year".

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time to win the title.

They went 15-1 in the postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games in the finals. One pregnant fan had painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach.

The parade will go north on Broadway, turn right on Grand Avenue, then right on Harrison Street, turn left on 19th Street, continue on Lakeside Drive and end on Oak Street with a procession to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention center. It was the second parade in three seasons for the Warriors. "No matter where they go, it's still in the Golden State". Team officials quickly and effectively debunked the claim, saying the focus after Monday's decisive victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers was on celebrating, and that a decision would be made in due time.

Oakland recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, and the city is still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.
