Denver Nuggets and their star player, Nikola Jokić, pulled out all the stops during their championship parade following their historic first NBA title win in the franchise's 47-year history.

The Mile High City was electrified as hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic fans lined the streets to join in the celebration. In a fiercely contested Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat, the Nuggets emerged victorious with a 94-89 win, thanks in large part to Jokić's outstanding performance.

The center, who was named the NBA Finals MVP, contributed 28 points and 16 rebounds on an impressive 12-for-16 shooting. The parade itself was a spectacle to behold, with an estimated half a million people in attendance.

Attendees enjoyed live music, reliving the highlights of Denver's championship season, and watching live video footage from the parade route. The city of Denver has a history of going all-out for sports celebrations, demonstrated in 2022 when they honored the NHL's Colorado Avalanche after their Stanley Cup victory.

The atmosphere during the parade was unparalleled, as jubilant Denver fans reveled in the joy of celebrating with their championship-winning team. Memorable moments abounded throughout the day, including one lucky fan catching and chugging a beer thrown to him by rookie guard Christian Braun, adding to the viral excitement of the event. Reflecting on the occasion, the fan expressed their appreciation for being part of the historic day.

Contrary to his earlier statement about not participating in the parade and heading home, Nikola Jokić was seen thoroughly enjoying the festivities, celebrating alongside his daughter and ensuring her safety amid the champagne showers.

Additionally, veteran player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope demonstrated how to properly celebrate a title victory, engaging with the passionate Denver crowd and executing a flawless Stone Cold Beer Smash.

The Nuggets' guards, Jamal Murray and Bruce Brown, also embraced the celebratory spirit, with Murray emphasizing the power of actions over words. Murray's triumph was especially remarkable considering his recovery from a torn ACL just over two years ago, causing him to miss the entire 2021-22 season.

Meanwhile, an exuberant shirtless Brown was spotted sharing a drink with an enthusiastic fan. Even Nuggets coach Michael Malone couldn't resist joining in the fun, sporting a shirt bearing the phrase, "you put that in your pipe, you smoke it," which alluded to a quote that gained attention after Game 1 of the Nuggets' series against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The display of camaraderie and revelry throughout the championship parade highlighted the unity and excitement that permeated the Denver Nuggets organization and their dedicated fanbase.
