After winning the 2022 NBA Championship, the Golden State Warriors had an amazing championship parade in San Francisco. Since fans were part of the parade, it was full of celebrations and hilarious moments.
It was great to see the Dubs celebrate their title after struggling for the last two seasons. So one might think that there was no one who wasn't happy after seeing the championship parade.
Well, if you thought so, then you are wrong. Because NBA analyst Skip Bayless had a problem with the Warriors' championship parade.
"I did not love anything about this parade. It made me sick. They make me sick. I don’t get beloved Steph because all year-long beloved Steph got more and more showboaty, out of control, with ego mania on the floor as he shot a career-worst from 3. He finally fell under 40% for the first time and yet now, people are saying he belongs in not only the top 10, in reading he belongs in the all-time top 5.
I had to watch one Warriors fan, get his pet goat to the parade, wearing a Steph jersey. And I’m thinking ‘even LeShannon can’t love that one’ cause you still have LeBron as the all-time GOAT.”
He further continued, "I have to put up with Steph and he’s doing ‘I put him to sleep’, right? All year long he’s shimmying, and he’s running all the way to the other end after he got and-one at Golden State’s Game 6. He ran all the way to the other end to excite the crowd before he returned to the far end to shoot the free throw and-one. And then he’s putting everybody to sleep and he’s putting me away because it’s he’s to watch it because they did do it, they pulled it off. I still say deserves an asterisk cause it should say ‘asterisk: fraudulent foe, fraudulent finals’. How about FFF – ‘Fraudulent Finals Foe’ because the Celtics were completely flawed and fraud.”
Since LeBron James wasn't part of this season's playoffs, Skip has found another player to hate. It feels like Curry is the new target for Bayless.
But it doesn't matter whether Bayless liked the parade or not. At the end of the day, he can't change the fact that Steph and co. won the NBA Finals. And they are simply entitled to celebrate their championship run in whatever way they want to.
