Game Tape: The Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade

1.3 million friends gathered in downtown Cleveland yesterday to celebrate the city’s first championship in 52 years. We had people scaling buildings, hanging and falling from buildings, people eating poop (allegedly), JR reenacting the Lion King, Kyrie doing the Running Man, and LeBron swearing up a storm.

Let’s look at the game tape


Maybe the best championship parade picture of all time?


Dan Gilbert apparently doesn’t know who Steph Curry is

Up close and personal with The King

Let’s check in on how JR Smith’s parade went:

Coolest moment ever. JR Smith holds up a kid in the middle of the parade. Of course someone added the Lion King soundtrack to it.

Who needs a shirt when you have a ring? Not JR

According to the Internet, JR took a fans phone, snapped this picture AND wrote this caption. Legend.


He’s got my vote

A couple buddies got some butt tattoos

Hipster Tito dropped a nuke on the idiot pundits


MGK performed in front of over a million people and swung from traffic lights

The streets were packed

Needed to cool off a little

I’d suggest sunscreen for next year’s parade

Lotta people in trees yesterday

Kevin Love hasn’t taken that championship belt off for 3 days

Oh, and he also brought SI Swimsuit model Kate Bock along with him


The Other King

I’m pretty sure Mo Williams danced through the entire parade

The Mall and Lil Kev

A guy climbed a tree


Tristan had squirt guns on his float

Get that weak stuff outta here

Fuck up some commas


Kyrie greeted the crowd with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind

Then he busted out a quick Running Man Challenge

A girl dropped from the Heinen’s building and was caught by the people

And now for the overhead shots


This guy wasn’t missing this parade no matter what


A fan may or may have eaten a little poop. No one knows if it was actually poop. Could have been mud. Yep, that’s it. A fan ate some mud. Big deal.

The Free Stamp turned into a giant chair

Here’s a view from the free stamp (via Reddit)


Tristan Thompson verbally posterized Draymond Green


Channing Frye was a little sauced and he had the mic drop of the day


Here’s LeBron’s entire uncensored speech
