Warriors fans getting ready for Tuesday's parade are shopping for some new gear this weekend.

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- In the wake of back to back NBA championships, it's all about the cool gear for the fans of Dub Nation.

There was a long line outside the Warriors team store at Oracle Arena when it opened at 7 a.m., Saturday. Fans wanted to buy freshly minted Warriors 2018 championship gear.

"I'm tired, I was at the watch party last night at Oracle but I had to come a get some t-shirts to remember the Dub Dynasty," said Warriors fan Akilah Byrd from Union City.

Some of those T-shirts say: "Back 2 Back Champions" and "Did it for the Bay, Again."

For others, it's all about the 2018 champs cap.

"I was first in line to grab one of these, what a game last night what a team, now I've got the hat," said Warriors fan Jimmy Walton.

Warriors retail managers tried to pre-order as much championship merchandise as they could. Managers say there is a six hat limit per customer.

2017 championship hats sold out fast last season.
