What a day for Dub Nation.
Four days after the Warriors clinched the 2022 NBA championship at TD Garden in Boston, the franchise got to celebrate with their fans Monday in San Francisco for the championship parade. In the middle of the madness on Market Street, 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast”, “Willard & Dibs” and “Steiny & Guru” were broadcasting live.
Klay Thompson LIVE from the parade!
Warriors guard Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole and Damion Lee joined “Willard & Dibs” before hopping in their tour buses to discuss the vibe with Dub Nation.
“Just being in the Bay Area the last few days, seeing all the people that are so happy off of what we’ve done, it’s been incredible,” Thompson said. “Incredibly inspiring as well and inspires us to keep going.”
Captain Klay was still in a good mood despite losing his 2022 champs hat on The Bay while boating to San Francisco.
“I did actually take the boat into today, because it was a perfect glassy day on the water,” Thompson said. “It’s funny, because I lost my championship hat in the wind and I do not condone littering. I tried to find her but she’s one with the ocean unfortunately. That’s why I have the captain’s hat on, because I lost the Finals hat.”
In fact, the gold touch on the captain’s hat is just perfect for the fit.
“Honestly, I think it was destiny because it fits the outfit perfectly,” Thompson said. “This was my secondary option. I’m in character. Sea Captain here for the day.”
Thompson has been on a bender since the Warriors won the title, as social media videos have shown him partying throughout the weekend. It’s well-deserved for the beloved Splash Brother, who sat out two-and-a-half years while rehabbing his ACL and Achilles injuries.
“It was a long thousand days,” Klay said. “Just a lot of watching. I had to watch two years of playoffs, the Finals. Now, to be here celebrating the finals is incredible. I knew it was a possibility, but for it to happen my first year back? Strength in Numbers is alive and well. I keep saying that because that’s our mantra and that’s what’s allowed us to do this for years.”
