Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala – stars for the Golden State Warriors – are running through the streets of Oakland, NBA Championship trophy in hands.

Here’s a collection of images from a recent photo assignment documenting the Golden State Warrior‘s 2017 NBA Championship parade in Oakland, California (June 2017):
