The Golden State Warriors knocked off LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night, clinching the series 4-1.

With the win, the Warriors have now won two of the past three NBA Championships, with both victories coming over James and the Cavaliers.

As champions are prone to do, the Warriors will be holding a celebratory parade Thursday throughout Oakland, but since Thursday is also the day the Raiders wrap up Mandatory Mini-Camp and the 2017 Offseason Workout Program, Head Coach Jack Del Rio and his players won’t be in attendance.

However, the parade will have a little bit of Silver and Black flare, as Hall of Fame cornerback, and current team ambassador, Willie Brown will be representing the organization at the celebration.

Brown will ride on a float sponsored by NBC Sports Bay Area and #BayAreaUnite that will also feature other Bay Area sports legends; the parade officially kicks off at 10:00 a.m.
