Unlike in years past, it doesn’t appear the Warriors’ championship parade will have a rally with speeches at the end of the route. And fans aren’t the only ones disappointed about this change.

A little past 1:30 am Monday, Draymond Green tweeted, “Nobody speaking at the parade? Yeah I think I’m going to stay at the crib.”


The parade kicks off at 11:20 am on Market and Main streets in San Francisco, heading down Market until it concludes about a mile away on 8th Street. When the Warriors held championship parades in Oakland, the route ended at Lake Merritt, where players took a temporary stage to give speeches and engage directly with fans.

Green was, unsurprisingly, a highlight of this portion of the parade. In 2015, he took the mic and immediately warned fans (and his bosses of him) that he was “going to get controversial.” But mostly he made fun of coach Steve Kerr: “Every time I take a shot, he complains,” Green joked. “So that’s why you see, every time I make a shot, I look at him.” In 2017, Green used his speech time to take shots at LeBron James.

Of course, Green’s desire to stay home today may be related to the Warriors’ relentless party schedule since clinching the NBA title over the Celtics. On Thursday night, the team party in Boston before flying back to the Bay Area, only to turn around and hit the clubs in Las Vegas.
