WARRIORS WIN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP!
While Pillar Point RV Park was nearly packed to capacity, from 6pm to 9pm Tuesday night, there wasn't a soul to be seen outside. Everyone was gathered inside their rigs to watch what Warrior fans hoped would be the final game of the 2015 NBA Championships. Everyone caught Warrior fever. You couldn't walk around the park without seeing someone wearing Warrior gear. Even the horse statue that greets
you by Lemos Farm as you come into Half Moon Bay on Highway 92, donned a Warrior uniform! And WIN they did!
Andre Iguodala led the Warriors with 24 points, while Stephen Curry added 22 points and eight assists. Draymond Green had a triple-double, with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Final score: 105-97
The Warriors regular season record was 67-15, recording seven more wins than any other team in the NBA. This was coach Steve Kerr's first year with the team.
It's Golden State's first championship since 1975, and fourth overall. The 39-season gap between titles is the longest in NBA history.
Just before the presentation of the trophy, a warriors commercial ran on television here which had the players say how proud they were to win the championship and how much they loved their fans and asked them to "Please celebrate with dignity" and to remember they were representing San Francisco. I though that was very cool.
The Warriors' Andre Igoudala won MVP of the tournament. He had not started any games in the season until the second to the last game of the play-offs, sacrificing for the sake of the team, to become the most valuable player.
The players credit each other for their work ethic, camaraderie, and self sacrifice for the good of the team for going all the way this year.
While the crowds got a bit rowdy in San Francisco, Warrior fans here in the park celebrated by roasting a few marshmallows over a bonfire and toasting with a glass of wine or two.
In the meantime...
The Golden State Warriors and the City of Oakland will host a parade and rally on Friday, June 19, 2015, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The parade will begin on Broadway at 11th Street, turning right on Grand Avenue, and right on Harrison to Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and proceeding to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center for the Rally.
Fans can begin to line up for the Rally as early as 5:00 a.m. at Lakeshore and 12th Street.
BART will run extra trains through Oakland all day and will modify routes to accommodate parade and rally attendants.
Keep in mind that this is one of the great things about staying at Pillar Point RV Park...you are just minutes away from BART that can whisk you to the heart of San Francisco or Oakland!
