Best Moments From The 2018 NBA Championship Parade AKA Jordan Bell’s Hennessy Journey

Here’s the NBA’s near seven-minute version of the “Best Moments” from the Golden State Warriors Championship Parade (full 80-minute video is at the bottom of the post). It includes boring footage of Steph Curry holding up the trophy, boring footage of his teammates and fans smiling and waving and an interesting shot of rookie Jordan Bell (the first MVP of the Ballislife All-American Game) trying to open a gate to get to the fans. The shot cuts before we see what Bell does. What the NBA editors cut was footage of Bell running to a fan with a bottle of Hennessy and then taking three big chugs from the fan’s bottle.

With the exception of Draymond Green — wearing a “mood” shirt that trolls LeBron — taking a shot at Tristan Thompson by saying he refused to shake Tristan’s hand after Game 4 because “we ain’t cut the same,” the best and funniest moments came from Bell and his Hennessy journey.

Before we get to an 11-minute “full highlights” video of the journey, I want to mention something funny about how his NBA journey started. Bell wasn’t in attendance for the NBA Draft, where he was picked by the Bulls in the 2nd round and then sold to the Warriors for $3.5 million. He was hosting a NBA draft party back home, where he jokingly said, “Fuck Bron Bron” after finding out he was going to the Warriors. And here we are, Bell and the Warriors celebrating a championship after beating “Bron Bron” in the Finals.
