The parade, a route of 1.3 miles, started at 11 a.m. EST, and finished around 4 p.m

A crowd of approximately 1.3 million fans flooded the route in the streets and on the sidewalks, ESPN reported.

Cavalier fans were even scaling the sides of buildings and standing on top of portable toilets Wednesday for a better look. 

The event was the biggest in the city since the Great Lakes Expo in the 1930s, WKYC reported.

Jim Brown, former fullback for the Cleveland Browns, joined the Cavaliers players and staff on stage. They each took turns speaking before LeBron James took the microphone and addressed fans.

"I'm nothing without you all. I love all of y'all," James said to the fans. "Get ready for next year."

The parade ultimately ended near Cleveland Browns Stadium. There will be another celebratory event in Akron, Ohio, Thursday, in conjunction with the Lebron James Family Foundation.

Cleveland Cavaliers fan disses Steph Curry's dad by hitting dab

One Cleveland Cavaliers fan may have made a devastating NBA Finals loss for the Golden State Warriors even more infuriating for fans, teammates, point guard Steph Curry and his father, Dell Curry.

Jennifer Hayashi, who goes by @chilloutjen on Twitter, posted a video of her friend Aaron Smith dissing Dell Curry in what looks like a prank.

In the video, a man walks toward Dell Curry with his hand out, as if going in for a handshake. When Dell Curry puts his hand out to shake in return, the prankster instead dabs.

Dabbing, made popular in sports by Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, is a dance created by hip hop trio Migos.

The dance is essentially lifting an arm bent at a 90 degree angle and bowing your head into your elbow.

The tweet got the attention of ESPN reporter Bomani Jones and Sports Illustrated.

Not everyone found the diss dab funny.

Although Jen dismissed critics by saying, "It's just a joke," she admitted her friend was silly for doing it.
