Fans Pack Riverwalk, Alamodome For Spurs Celebration
By: Ashlei King
It is a celebration like no other city has - a parade down San Antonio's Riverwalk.
"Since Sunday when they won, we said, we're going to come to the River Parade," one Spurs fan said.
Spurs players from the past and present, coaching staff, the silver dancers, and Coyote all loaded up on barges to thank the fans.
"It's a very, very special moment for us. You guys have been with us all along," Manu Ginobili said.
Fans chanted MVP as one of the youngest to ever get the trophy took the mic.
"I thought I was going to get some rest after we won the finals, but I'm still celebrating. Go Spurs Go!" Kawhi Leonard, Finals MVP, said.
After the River Parade, the party moved to the Alamodome. Fans decked out in silver and black packed the arena. It hit maximum capacity about an hour before the celebration started.
"We feel very fortunate to be in this city and to be supported by people like yourselves," Head Coach Gregg Popovich said.
