The Warriors look to be favourites to win the title for the next three-to-five years at least, so what does this mean for the rest of the league?
The team rode buses along the parade route before players and coaches spoke to the crowd at a rally.
Step Curry told the San Jose Mercury News that he is not inclined to go to the White House, but he and Finals MVP Kevin Durant and others players said the team would make a collective decision, if necessary, after they get together as a group and discuss it.
After being labelled all season as one of the greatest teams ever assembled, they fulfilled their destiny and bulldozed every team that stood in their way, finishing with a 4-1 demolition of the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.
Fans who gathered in Oakland, California, for Thursday's parade celebrating the Warriors Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers said they expected more championships from the team in the years to come. "This is the best job in the world".
"I remember exactly where I was this time a year ago, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade. This whole thing of resist, and we're not going to deal with this person, and we're going to ignore this person, it's unhealthy, it's un-American, it's really cowardly. "Thank you for the support".
Less than a year after suffering the most dramatic collapse in Finals history, the Dubs are champions once again.
In a much-anticipated first-round clash against the Thunder, Harden's former employers, Houston brushed Oklahoma City and Russell Westbrook - the first player in over 50 years to average a triple-double - aside 4-1, but they disappointing slumped to a 4-2 defeat to the Spurs.
Green also told reporters that James was the one who started the concept of a super team and he has no right to say that he has never joined and organized one. They were the most winning team of the league, with a record of 67-15.
The comments came just moments after Kerr gave this assessment of Green.
Golden State went 40 years between titles after winning the crown in 1975. Three of the franchise's five titles were secured after the team moved to the Bay Area from Philadelphia.
