12:04 pm
jose outgoing mayor sam liccardo just passing through. so this really entire bay and so let me show the oakland and that's one thing about the warriors. no matter what side of the bay there on right, the entire bay area takes ownership and tears along with fact everybody seems to identify with the war while they're still in the bay area. james didn't go to i here we've always had 2 football teams will maybe not always. but now we're down to 1, 2, baseball teams hopefully won't be down to one. but there's always just been one nba one team that has spanned every bridge and every freeway in every pocket of the mayor. and what part of the bay are from, right? everybody is a warrior fan. well, i feel like it is very unique for up here. as in terms of california, just because being from southern california, you know, you have the lakers and the clippers, right? so you have that light above. yeah, of fans. but >> what for everyone to be able to just focus on this one team and give them all the
12:05 pm

12:06 pm
you know, championship through the it's their first one whatnot. so that energy is really there for a lot of steam. but we haven't steps bus since the very beginning. but i did see him lighting up go back live to the parade ground once again. our sports director. >> jason dumas standing by. there's a there's a bit of a delay between when we finished austin him when he hears but take it away. jason. and so we're out here on market street. and guess what? we draymond green. we're going to walk towards him right now. drummond. he's holding trophy as we speak. he's backed his back is to us great mind. it. >> he's he's the polls up this organization. we know steph curry is the face of the organization. draymond green. he's the polls and a
12:07 pm
heartbeat. his organization here comes by. right now. >> look at time on and one an incident. visitors god, we got >> a brownie we've got right there. we got dream on. we've got a lot of people up here. so, you know, it. it's one stop in list. let's keep walking here. we mayor mayor london breed. >> i think we're do we have jason back is jason. all right. looks like we're dealing with some cell phone coverage and it's i james have been here since the beginning of the morning a 4, 5 o'clock this morning. we're letting
12:08 pm
them go here, but we're going to keep on rolling just as the parade keeps rolling down market street this afternoon. absolutely beautiful day. all those balloons we were trying to get jason. he was trying to. draymond there. hopefully we can get his connection back. but like we've been talking about the amount of people that are out there this afternoon is its electric. you can. >> these people are just so fired up to be here, potentially maybe get a selfie with shake hands with your favorite right thank you. to everyone kept saying, you know, every the person will sarah, everyone who is talking to. they were like we want to see, steph, want to see, steph, but then, you know, we have those who are like what party they want to the amount of people who are there to see jordan poole. he really pulled it out for these warriors this year. we're talking about a guy people are starting to call him people on the cusp calling him a draft. but >> and now here he is. people
12:09 pm
are looking to the future of franchise. oh, yeah. didn't make it to the finals of the nba's most improved player award that spreads a lot of people. they thought he should have been nearly a very important part of this championship team in some of the fans really love and are excited the part of i mean, without him, i do not. they would not be here at this point. i don't know if it's hard hold out. some really clutch entire playoff series. and then, of course, there for the finals. i'm not sure his bus. that is a cat. as the bus is slowly make their way down. the so it's it's a very short routes that they're going down today. >> and they say it's going to go on until about 2 o'clock this afternoon. so like we saw there in inching all the way. but how great is that? the fact that it's such a short route gives everyone real
12:10 pm
chance to potentially interact with their players because they don't have to hurry. they run this route that they wanted to get back rush to get back on their bottles. cool off a little bit a lot of fun. i love that. he's got a water gun out there. you great. would it be to be someone who was in the direct stream of gpt? so refreshing and fun. they're still going up back there. you see it on and that he just going off the amount of confetti that i've noticed on the on the ground here. >> 2 days. pretty impressive. you know, with when it comes to players like dream on. and we were hoping to hear from him with with jason a little bit earlier, the energy that they bring to the crowd is just kind of indescribable little bit because you never
12:11 pm
know what he's going to say, what he's going to do. so the the way people react when he's coming shores going to be. a sight to earlier today, james use the phrase colorful. yeah. talking to the crowd and that's a great way to describe it. >> he's such a polarizing figure throughout the country. among these bay area where can will let the end i think our camera got a little of the little bit of that come here. hopefully we'll on. hopefully we'll see some of other players. but for now, we're going to great.
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
12:14 pm
>> welcome back. warriors. 2022 championship parade. it is rolling down market street right now. we are bringing it to you live this afternoon. myself novello kate rooney here. >> we are are just as excited as ever. think. but the energy that they're all feeding off of is a is pretty i mean, you can hear the sounds of these fans. some of have been out there since as early as they were telling our reporters and this is the moment that they have all been waiting for. it's kind of a party atmosphere all morning because you're surrounded by all these other warriors fans. once you actually see the warriors team members and the players and their families come through on these buses. just. surreal moments. it is. and, you i think you said earlier, it's
12:15 pm
like, you know, one of those once-in-a-lifetime things. but for fans of this team, the last what 8 years they won before. so, for time like commonplace almost too. but >> still, you can't helping realize how special it is, even though they have done it before. and course, this is the first warriors parade in san francisco. yes, it is. and we've got robbed as we've got team coverage this afternoon. rob nesbitt out there on market street with some of those fans. rob, can you hear us? >> i can hear you. luckily got to me early enough where i can hear you because if you look, we are about just a couple minutes away from people coming down. so like you can see like they're starting to spread the confetti fans. they got like a basketball hoop that they're suiting moves going. i start the parade. get the crowd into it and i'm seeing obviously too far away to see the actual players or not. but just, you know, people with organization have like certain things that they're shooting off into the crowd, which is pretty exciting. and as i'm talking with fans all day, guys, it is
12:16 pm
like so cool to hear where everyone is from. like i had a fan from seattle who drove all the way down for this parade. i had a woman who lives in san francisco. she works in texas up san antonio for this parade. they're coming from literally all over and they're sitting all over like, i don't know if you can see it. but we've got like most people. sitting on the court or bodies. that are set up for people to use the bathroom. so like when you want to talk about every see him take in in this place. these fans. all right here and they're taking up every seat possible and they're getting it if behind it telling channel 4 as well as golden state warriors. >> what they're thinking about, everybody wants to be on tv. so here's their 5 minutes of fame like i'll get obviously. >> and cited guys, they got
12:17 pm
the signs. we've got cold blooded. it was so fun to be in the really dab in the middle and at the intersection of 4th and market street. so it's really like the halfway point of the >> i know that jason kept saying he was in the belly of the beast. i think your in the belly of the beast there right in the middle because that is where, you know, most folks are packed and you you said somebody came in from seattle. where else have you? where else have people coming from? >> so, yeah, was the one that really stuck out for me was basically saying light. they're going to have a team anymore. wanted to golden state warriors and their own team. that is the second game. and the texas san antonio. note more familiar that. i mean, defense right? yeah, i
12:18 pm
neo versus seattle. i think that's a pretty for other than my favorite >> been out. she called outset. she called out the people are go. people want to get them on camera so their bosses can see. >> i actually think they want to come to the playing my best. but stand definitely an excused a we have that have called out sick to be out there. if you catch any of them out there, rob, let us know. >> i didn't call like the best assignment of the year for just be the warriors. when i posted a couple pictures on instagram and twitter, though, guys, people were unhappy with because i'm from new england, my sister station in providence, rhode island, obviously covers the celtics pretty heavily. and so as i post ago warriors, they're giving me a bit of a hard time. i'd has been a celtics fan before larry bird. so. at
12:19 pm
the end of the day, i got to adopt the golden state warriors because i live here now, right? so has embraced you, got to talk to a lot of fans out there, right? that's right. i legal that. >> up there. we've maybe a little bit of yeah, it looks like some already streaming over to the side here. >> rob, down on 4 th-and market. so that is just about halfway through this parade route and avoid those fans waiting anxiously he's buses to come. they have to wait a little bit longer. that. reports the tech so far, right. but you know, but it's all worth it. once the once the players reach that. >> you know, they will feel like they came out for a reason. confetti. we do have highland mills. i know 2, she
12:20 pm
was a was a shift. the right at the beginning of the parade on market and from highland, i believe you're standing by. their can hear us. what's going on in your little corner. >> hey, you guys. i can hear you loud and clear right now. head coach steve bruce frazier with steve kerr assistant coach mike brown. and basically the entire coaching staff on the bus. it is right in front of us in our direct line of vision. first of all, steve kerr is wearing a shirt that says knight knight on it. but i have to point that out because that is a catch phrase coined by steph curry during the season actually against the dallas mavericks, i believe was the first time he did that little night. a celebration after hitting a big bucket and see per as a black shirt on this is night night on it. also a couple minutes ago, several fans started egging him on cheering, encouraging him. 2 shot straight from a bottle of champagne and current blige them did take a childs straight out of the bottle and did so for several minutes. i was impressed not going to
12:21 pm
lie. so even the coaching staff getting in on the fun, you can see her right now. he's a company us and he's kind of waving it at some of the other people driving by her part of the parade of but the entire coaching staff having a lot of fun. another know something that really cracked me up as the worst coaching staff approached the front of this parade route. fans started chanting defense defense and in response source, coaching staff are up to done to cheers. they were laughing because stores coaches have harped on defense all season. they've wanted that to be this team's identity. the last several seasons when they're not getting buckets, they want to have lockdown defense to keep them in games. big proponent of being sound defensively. so of course, the crowd started chanting defense as the coaching staff approach the start of the parade and they were all cracking up. they were cheering in response and it was like a loud, loud defense. and it went on for several i thought that was so hilarious. otherwise the coaches are just having a lot of fun out here right now.
12:22 pm
like i said, drinks are flowing. they're all just hanging out, getting ready to hit the parade route because they're still just kind of in the waiting area before they cross that threshold over drum street where they really will hit the main portion of the crowds. fans are all glued to the buses right now waiting to see. who is up next. and we'll be making their way to the streets. the coaching staff, though, i got to tell you, guys, getting in on the fun. it they 100% earned the right some champagne. it. here they come. you guys. after tpe warriors coaches get moving the bus with the mvp warriors star steph curry's approaching the start of the parade. he is the player that all of these fans are dying to get a glimpse of it. the star of this team. well loved by dup nation. as he has been for the last decade. he has his mvp trophy. with them on the front of his bus. and damion lee,
12:23 pm
who is his brother-in-law riding in the same bus that is just behind it. the coaching staff they're getting ready to make their way onto the parade route. curry, highly anticipated by the fans as soon as his bus came into eyesight. i just heard a bunch of cheers. i'm like this is got to be curry. it is curry. he's at the very front of his bus doing a little dance move right now. he also has his kids with him. his wife, i should hurry on one side, mvp chance are breaking out. you guys. hit. that crowd is going to wild. steph curry's best schools around the corner. thank you so much. i love this. we're looking at actually gary payton, the second right, getting in on the crowd action. he is loving it. he hopped bus a while ago. still down there with all the fans that looks like you've got be down for some of clips, which it looks like he may be going live on instagram or something or maybe just taking a bunch of selfies with the fans there. like you said. >> they're going to wild first
12:24 pm
step. but even with gp, they've been going wild for the last like 20 minutes. so, it's really been a fan favorites this year. yeah. >> course. the son the legendary feet and that he's kind of fell down around from team to team. i think the warriors 6. >> 18 finally found a home with this organization where he was really able to contribute and make a difference. so >> who hasn't always know what direction his career with head. now he's got a ring. now. he's surrounded fans who know his name and he's just the greatest thing that like you said he's found a home here and that's one great thing about nation, right? they really, really well embrace the players here. we talk a little bit earlier about how klay thompson always says that the fans are you know, just what makes playing for this team. so worthwhile right? yeah, absolutely. and you can see it. i mean, it's got to be such a great feeling come out as a player, the on these buses on these trolleys and here the fans to scream

12:56 pm
on, klay thompson stopped got out of the bus with the trophy and started running the streets of san francisco. he was running this way. he was running this way here and down main. he was all over the place running up to fans taking selfies, high-fiving people waving the trophy. he just went completely rogue. he was running every single direction. fans are going absolutely nuts, especially noticed some female fan says, well, we're really, really cheering and really excited about seeing klay thompson. it was such an epic and special moment just to see him be able to interact with the fans, especially after all thompson has been through the last 2 years. it was almost 3 years ago now that he tore his acl during the 2019 nba finals and then he tore his achilles during the recovery from the acl injury. so he's gone through so much. just get back to the court this season. he says he's still not. it is true. klay thompson form. even he says he hasn't even gotten back to the point. you would like to be and however, to win a championship this season with this group is so sweet for klay thompson. talked about it all throughout the
