The San Antonio spurs defeated the Miami Heat (104-87) during Game 5 on Sunday in their hometown and now it’s time to celebrate!
The city of San Antonio invited the community out to honor the Spurs with a river parade on the River Walk. Following the championship parade, the celebration will move to the Alamodome for a special ceremony.
San Antonio mayor Julian Castro released a statement on the team’s fifth win saying,
“The City is proud of our Spurs. This fifth championship cements the Spurs’ legacy as one of the greatest sports franchises in history.”

He is also the first and only player to achieve this accomplishment as a starting player on each of the championship teams. Work!
