Up To 1-Million Expected For Warriors Victory Parade, Fans Urged To Take Transit

(by Janis Mara) – Up to a million people will likely flood into downtown Oakland for the Golden State Warriors victory parade Tuesday, and celebrants should expect traffic and delays all day, city officials said.

The parade will begin at 11 a.m. It starts on Broadway at 11th Street, turning right on 20th Street, turning right on Harrison to 19th Street and right on Lakeside Drive, ending on Oak and 13th Street.

Street closures and no-parking zones are expected to make driving in downtown Oakland difficult starting early Tuesday. Fans are urged to take public transportation, because parking will be limited and will fill up very
early, according to city officials.

To get to the celebration, those riding BART should get off at the 12th or 19th Street stations, transit officials said. Those who don’t own a Clipper card are encouraged to buy one a day or two early to avoid lines at
ticket machines.

BART parking lots will be packed, according to transit officials, so fans should either take the bus, walk or get dropped off at the station when beginning their trip to downtown Oakland.

Ill start watching basketball when there is more diversity in the sport. Food for thought.

The official Warriors after-party will be at Rocco’s Pizzeria in Walnut Creek.

They are too political, Who cares they won. And I agree they need more diversity.

That would be a beautiful time to arrest Schaff.

Imagine the MSM reaction.

They should be more diverse.

I sure don’t hear the lefties screaming for more diversity.

The good ol’ double standard….

Even Steve Kerr goes over the top on politics. I guess he wants to fit in with this players. I’m done with the NBA.

Wish I could go, I’m a lifelong Warriors fan since the days of Sleepy Floyd. This is the only team that the entire Bay embraces. (Sorry Sharks and Earthquakes).

To all the race baiters, I bet you complain when people talk about diversity in white dominated professions. The difference is, people don’t blink an eye at a white NBA player. The one that has truly felt discriminated against has been Jeremy Lin. He has been called racist names, has had racist headlines in the newspaper about him, has had trouble getting into arenas, has been discriminated against by fellow NBA players, etc.

Pyrrhus, since when is diversity racism??? Can’t we all just get along ☹️

GO WARRIORS! Another great season! The parade should be a fun one!

Too bad the Warriors and other professional sports teams have to push their political views.

The Mamba June 12, 2018 at 12:11 PM

Errouneous, do not take transit! Do not go on BART any time around 4 PM! Take any other way home possible!
