The festivities continued on today for Denver Nuggets fans, as the team held their parade after defeating the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, sealing the deal with a 94-89 win over the Miami Heat on Monday, and winning the best of seven series 4-1.
Of course, Nuggets fans have been flooding the streets of Denver and partying every night since then, but it’s something special when that bus arrives and you get to celebrate with the whole team as they drive through the city.
Even Nikola Jokic was having himself a time, even though he said he was ready to go home and didn’t want to do a parade in the post game press conference after the win:

But going back to the whole a special moment the fans and team can share together, Nuggets shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made sure to take full advantage of this opportunity to interact with fans.
And how did he do this, you may ask?
By grabbing a couple of beers and putting on a beer chugging competition with one of the fans.
Video footage captured Caldwell-Pope asking for two beers from the top of the bus. His teammates tossed them to him, and he ran over to one lucky fan, and the two began to chug.
Talk about a cool moment.
Caldwell-Pope proved that he’s a certified beer chugger, and barely defeated his worthy opponent, as it was an impressive display by both guys.
