The Golden State Warriors reclaimed their throne by beating the Boston Celtics, 4-2, in the 2022 NBA Finals. This marked Golden State’s fourth NBA championship in eight years. It was certainly an emotional victory for Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and co. as the Warriors went through a grueling three-year journey to climb back to the mountaintop. In this post, though, we’ll be looking at the Warriors parade time, date, route and so much more.

With that, the Bay Area will host its first championship parade since 2018, when the Dubs won their second straight NBA title by sweeping LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals. But it will be the first time the city of San Francisco will experience an NBA parade following the franchise’s move from Oakland to San Francisco during the 2019-20 season.
This should be a raucous atmosphere Monday afternoon as Dub Nation celebrates the Warriors‘ return to golden glory. Expect to hear speeches from each player, especially from newly-minted Finals MVP Stephen Curry, who had a lot to get off his chest after winning his fourth NBA title. Klay Thompson could get emotional following his journey going through those two catastrophic injuries. Of course, expect Draymond Green to bring the fireworks as well and talk a lot of smack.
This should also be a special day for first-timers Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole. Don’t be shocked if they make some references to “the bag,” as they did during their IG live after Game 6, with owner Joe Lacob looking on.
In case you’d want to catch all of these go down and celebrate with the 2022 NBA Champions, ClutchPoints has you covered with the details.
