Floats, marching bands, politicians, and the Detroit Pistons paraded through downtown Detroit on Thursday. Tens of thousands of Piston fans gathered along the route to honor the NBA champs.
The team later assembled on a stage at Hart Plaza on the Detroit River to address the fans. Team members call the fans the "best in the world."
The Pistons earned the title "Best in the NBA" by beating the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night and winning the basketball championship four games to one.
