The Warriors went 15-1 in this year's postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals.
    
The team's young stars, including Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, are expected to have lengthy NBA careers.

Golden State Warriors fans are waking up early to secure a spot along the team's parade route in Oakland, California.

They are called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California. Not if you ask Oakland.
    
The down-on-its-luck city that always seems to take a back seat to San Francisco gets to celebrate Thursday in a parade and rally for the beloved hometown team and its second NBA title in three years.
    
The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time, ending with a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.
    
Residents of Oakland, which lost one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, are still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a fatal warehouse fire.
    
But Thursday the city will make headlines for good news.
    
The parade starts at 10 a.m. at Broadway and 11th Street downtown.
