Overall, Oakland was quiet and empty, which was disappointing for many Warriors fans who came out hoping for a street celebration. "I came with buddies here but, hey we tried and next year, next year though," Warriors fan Jay Narayan said.

"Right now it's just mellow and it's okay but, we'll make it happen next time," Warriors fan Aja Franco said.

It was a subdued and somber atmosphere, with everyone focused on the season ahead.
