The Golden State Warriors’ second NBA title in three years means the Larry O’Brien Trophy is coming back to Oakland. The city’s victory parade is scheduled for Thursday, 10 a..m. In the meantime, with the Warriors being the only professional basketball franchise in the Bay Area, East Bay politicians can be rest assured their social media activity is bound to make everyone happy. Here’s a sample of the tweets posted shortly after the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday night, including the hashtag #stayinoakland used below by Oakland Councilmember Dan Kalb.
