shy, but i'm getting out of there. and pushing myself. >> reporter: daddy says another tip is to stay genuine. >> looking for an artist, i'm looking for an artist. i'm not just looking for someone to sing a hit record that somebody else wrote. i want to make an artist that's going to be around here, following the footsteps of all the artist that i've worked with. >> reporter: fox news. >> you will see "the four: battle for stardom" at 8:00 right here on ktvu fox 2. after that, it's the 10 and 11:00 news. as we reported earlier, whooping cough is on the rise. up nearly 400%. >> we are going to speak with officials from the health department to learn the reasons behind the increase and really what you can do to keep children in your life safe. that is today on the 4 on 2. a couple minutes away from the closing bell. the dow jones started the day
off in the positive. as you can see how does here, down 31 points or so. a positive day. up 61 points. a ghost town is up for sale. it's called cerro gordo. the ghost town and mining site came with 22 buildings on the site including a historic hotel, saloons, chapel, and eighth museum. -- a museum. they hope to sell it to someone who wants to preserve its history. >> i'm intrigued. i don't quite have the capital. >> maybe $1 million? still to come, fox's coverage of america's golf championship against in just 30 minutes. >> before that, coming up next, jason appelbaum gives us a look at back. you were there at the warriors victory parade. two days ago.
it was a picture-perfect day. the sun was shining and the crowd was excited. if you missed it, or even if you were there for the parade, we will show you the best moments of this year's championship parade. >> golden gate bridge -- steph curry got off the bus. of course, you came here to see everything, but look at these lucky fans. >> you know, you have been out to a warriors game. you have covered steph curry , and you have seen them in person. for fans who maybe can't even afford to go to a game, i mean this is incredible for a 2 time mvp and three-time champ to get down off of the bus.
he is really amongst the crowd right now. this is a particular thrill for fans who just don't walk up and see steph curry every day. >> it was one big party out there. without a doubt, the big thing of the paradewas players interacting with the fans. that was by design. the other theme, champagne, and lots of it. if you were in the crowd, i am guessing you spelled it. on a hot day, it may be felt good and a little bit sticky. according to reports, this is unbelievable. the warriors spent $500,000 on bubbly during the parade. add to that the 600 bottles of high end bubbly they celebrated with in the rocker room -- in
the locker room in cleveland, you are talking $1 million worth of booze. with so many courts to pop, you are bound to have maybe an malfunction or two. kevin took so long to pop this court, we put a clock on it. if you are at home and you are wondering how to pop champagne, typically you hold the court and twist the bottle. that is the key. he finally from the back gets a little help from a friend that says let me loosen it up for you a little bit and get it going. he says i got it. he says no, i am going to help you out a little bit. let me loosen it a little bit so that i can get right imposition for you. use your thumb and give me a pop here. 36 seconds, ladies and gentlemen. kb pops the champagne on the bubbly. champagne is not the only beverage consumed in the parade. in fact, rookie jordan bell,
you know, he prefers hennessy, but he runs out. he says i don't have any. oh, you have got some hennessy, come on up. come on up and film -- and fill my cup. jordan gets off of the diver does not the double-decker bus and runs into the crowd. he says i am going to jump over the barricade and find my guy. now, some people are saying this wasn't a really good look, and that may be. jordan is 23 years old, he is living in the moment. he is being real to himself, next year if they win again, he may react a little bit differently, but i like that bell finds this kid in the crowd afterwards and give him a nice big hug. it was about players interacting with the fans. great, great great time out
there in oakland. it wasn't just fans and the team that had a great time, some of our anchors and reporters got into the celebrating mood as well. >> all right. that was a little champagne shower for the crowd. >> it is all love and all positivity. you know how it goes. >> don't ever forget. y'all are a part of the locker room. >> thank you for coming out and supporting us and showing the love that you guys are showing all season not only today. we really appreciate it. that really drives us. >> awesome. they are having a lot of fun. but before you came to us, they shook up at champagne, shot it into the ground, and as you can see, i said you are going to
stay on that bus, and he said oh no, we were not going to stay on that bus. >> you came up to his shoulder, not even his shoulder. >> i know, i know. >> mcgee quickly became a fan favorite. he was so valuable to the warriors down the stretch. i really love seeing the guys get off the bus. this is what the fans really want to see. >> it feels good. >> nick young. >> what about this crowd? what does this mean to you? >> it is the best thing ever. >> i love when they get off. it is just nothing better than that. >> good job, mike.
>> is this the way you are supposed to open a bottle of champagne? >> i have a feeling -- i am drinking martinelli, but i think the champagne is going to flow here in a second. we have seen pictures of a champagne filled bathtub. truly, the celebration started friday evening, even before the game itself was over. >> i wonder is joe close enough to get any of this champagne sprayed on him. >> if he is in any range of champagne, he will be there. >> good analysis. no, i am not close enough. i have been sprayed with it before when you're in the locker rooms and you kind of get the overspray. there is a reason why the guys wore goggles, because that stings when you get in your eyes. they like to space out, and i am sure you saw the ownership
that just went by. they like to space out those double-decker buses with the players. mcgee, jones, and nick young were on the bus together. the coaching staff is the next one out. they said to heck with this, we are going to get down in the crowd and start mixing it up with the folks. that is what you saw kind of at the tail end of that. we are at the corner of 11th and broadway. the marriott hotel is the warriors team headquarters. they said to heck with waiting, we are going to get down and mix it up with all of the folks. that was a kind of a fun dynamic to see the guys slapping high-fives with all of the fans. unfortunately no, i am not close enough to get sprayed with champagne. it would feel really good right now if that were to happen. >> you saw it and you heard it. the players getting off of the
but for steve kerr, this is his eighth championship celebration. he won three more as a head coach. it was 21 years ago almost to the day that kerr hit the game winning shot to clinch the 1997 championship. after the bulls game, this is how he remembered the final moments of that game. >> when we called timeout with 25 seconds to go, we went into the huddle. phil told michael that i want to take the last shot. michael said you know, phil, i don't feel real comfortable in these situations. maybe we ought to go in another direction. why don't we go to steve? >> so, i thought to myself well, i guess i have to bail michael out again.
>> the shot went in, and that is my story, and i'm sticking to it. >> nothing but net, and he hasn't changed one bit. the same dry sarcasm and his ultimate belief in himself. this week's parade was different from the past. there was no big rally at the end, but the team did take a much smaller stage before the parade even started. >> how was this year different from the two previous? everybody has talked about how difficult it was obviously getting you back from injury. yet still, you came together at the right time. how did this year have a different feel? >> i mean, pretty much described every part of the journey with the injuries, the challenge of tryg to motivate yourself and get hyped chasing a trophy. we have amazing iq guys with
great chemistry. when the lights are bright, we show up, and it all kind of came together at the right time down the stretch of the playoffs. now, we are here celebrating another championship. it was a special year, for sure. >> for klay thompson, the line of the season was i never used your ankle so much. you said you did not want to miss anything. you wanted to continue to play with these guys. what will you remember from this year? >> just the journey. i will remember the downs more, honestly, just because they made the victory that must sweeter this meant that much sweeter. -- victory that much sweeter. the journey was long.
it has been like i blurt these last four years, but if you end up with this every time, you can't complain. >> you and klay always had the unbreakable confidence in shooting. no matter what happened on the prior shot, you are going to take the next shot. what was it within the team that had the inner belief that you are going to get it done? >> i mean, we usually respond when our backs are against the wall. that was a situation that we have not been in. to have to win two in a row without having a home-court advantage, we had so much confidence in ourselves that we could turn it around, and obviously, we did it.
so, like klay said, all of the work that you put into it in the blood, sweat, and tears that you leave out on the floor during the regular season, training camp, and the playoffs all shows up at the right time. that is what happened. >> you have said you want to be known as one of the ultimate winners. i came up with a little number for you. 4200 guys play nba basketball. 73 has won three championships or more. that is less than 2%. five of those 73 dues are golden state warriors, and you are one of them. >> that is pretty special. that is pretty good. i have a lot of defensive breakdowns out there thinking about myself. you know, these guys cover up for me, so i can't act like it is just me out there making everything go. we all work out together, and you know, that is how our defense is so great. >> kevin, you talked about year number two being different than number one.
how does it feel like someone releasing a second album after a megahit the first time around. >> like klay said, i think it is the journey being around these guys every day. i see my family, so i feel like we built a nice bond over the last few years. it is only getting stronger and stronger, and it shows on the basketball court. from bus rides, to shoot around and breakfast meetings, that is the best part of the year. to get here just it all off. it is a special year getting to know each and every one of my teammates even better. >> it is hard to ask an elite player what is the best game you have ever played. we think about in the finals, your splash brothers are hurting in the game and you need scoring, so you kick in 43. green needs
help, you just grab 13, a need some assist, so you crank out and dish out 8. is that the greatest game you have ever played in your life? >> it was a fun game. i felt like we just helped each other do everything. you know, when guys are not making shots, you just pick it up in other areas. we defended, we rebounded as one. i didn't box out every time. they allowed us to come in there and get rebounds, so think we did everything together. we were able to walk out of there with the ew. -- with a w. >> it is now happening so many times that is the new normal.
for four straight years, the warriors have played for almost 2 months after the majority of the nba has gone home for the off-season. three championships in four years guarantees not just comparisons to great nba teams of the past, but also to dominant eras in all pro sports. the mention of the dword, dynasty. >> honestly when i hear that, for me, a more appropriate reaction is the 49ers. that was the dynasty i grew up watching. these things are hard to measure in the present. maybe that is my own problem. i don't get mad at people want to say that. >> do you consider your warriors a dynasty and where you rank your team amongst the greatest of all time? >> have no idea. it is not for me to answer that question. i does know what we have been able to accomplish is really meaningful. it is something that not many players have been able to experience.
we will have plenty of time in our lives to discuss that later. i want to keep this thing going as long as we can. >> maybe steph curry can put it in perspective. he won five championships as a player and a three now as a coach. >> i was only a part of the last three years, but winning three out of four is not easy. >> it brings us to what now has become an annual question. what do the warriors do for an encore? >> it started four years ago. what is exciting is the realization and thought that we are young enough to where we can keep competing for the next few years, and we hope to do so. >> 29 other nba teams will try to do that from happening. warrior fans should appreciate that what we are witnessing for what you call it a dynasty or any other name, doesn't come along very often. >> yeah, you really have to soak it all in. we will be right back. n:3:3:3
>> i want to show you this. look at this right here. can turn to find this way. are you working on your skills? >> yes. it is amazing. >> it is amazing. i am glad you're here hanging out with us all morning. let's send it over to mike. >> okay. i love that sign. it doesn't get better than that. who do we have over here? what is your name? >> gomez. >> what celebrates this team -- what separates this team from other teams? >> we are just the best.
>> do you want to see them wake up? hey the nation, how are we doing? >> my photographer is working the other side of the screen. -- of the street. this side is wide awake. let me tell you. they have been here. >> box coverage of the u.s. open is coming up next. here is one final goodbye to the warriors. >> the golden state warriors are champions once again back to back with three in four years. from way downtown, the rebound
goals to the cavaliers and jr smith brings it back out. >> you have to know the score. >> steph curry with the shot clock expiring. do you realize the degree of difficulty with these shots? i mean, -- >> that was kind of like the dagger shot. >> kevin durant way out, kevin durant way downtown. >> curry trying to draw the file. -- draw the foul.
>> back-to-back. >> oh, snap. >> you know, three years ago, i can't believe this happened, and now, i can definitely believe this is happening, but it was hard. >> it feels so good to be a part of a group like this. >> that is what you want as an nba player. >> we wanted to be back in this moment. it is a great feeling to be back here. we have kind of unlocked greatness out of each other. i had a great finals, and i am the champ.
it looks so peaceful from up there. down below the wind is up. the scores are up. it's the 118th u.s. open championship for you on fox. continuing first round coverage from shinnecock hills. the number one player in the world, dustin johnson, and 1 under at the moment. here he is at 5. the birdie to get to 2 under. went back to 1 under par, but then here at 8, the only one in this grouping not to hit the green. no big deal. knocked it in to move back to 2 under and into the
