Last year, after the Warriors dispatched James's Cavaliers in five games to reclaim their crown from Cleveland, Green wore a short that used the "Q" logo from Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena to start the word "Quickie."

Monday, Warriors general manager Bob Myers-the man who assembled this absurd roster-said the team will do whatever it takes to bring back K.D. He said the back-to-back Finals MVP could have "whatever he wants".
The entire exchange was just freaky, especially for what should just be a fun celebration on another very successful Warriors season.

Oakland resident Jasmine Culp, 36, painted her lips blue and dressed in a sparkling golden sequined dress, sash, and blue-gold feather accessories to attend the parade with her three children, Jonavon, Jewel, and Cypher.

The two got into it during Game 1 of the Finals.
