The Golden State Warriors were in a celebratory mood on Monday afternoon.
Just days after being named the 2022 NBA champions, the team took to the streets of their hometown, San Francisco, to throw a massive parade.

Before the parade, Kerr was seen doing his best Curry impression.
The Hall of Famer and acclaimed coach did his best version of the “night night” gesture that Curry employed during last week’s Finals.
Curry’s “night night” motion is really taking the NBA world by storm.
It’s something that Warriors fans love – and Boston Celtics fans loathe.
Curry’s “night night” gesture came during the Finals as it looked increasingly likely that Curry and the Warriors were going to overcome the Celtics and win their fourth Finals in eight years.
It was an ice-cold ad-lib that Golden State fans absolutely loved.
But fans of the Celtics hated it because it was a dagger in their heart and came when they were coming to terms with an inevitable loss.
There is a good chance that you’ll be seeing a lot more of this pose in the months and years to come.
You can bet that Curry – and his fans – will be using it again next year.
But you can also bet that opponents will use it too, at any opportunity they have to rub a loss in Curry’s face.
However, for now, it’s something that Warriors fans are enjoying and reveling in.
Just like their latest victory.
