There will be no gathering before or after the parade, according to Kylen Mills of Kron 4 News in the Bay Area, and no public comments will be given by the players

While Mills said she isn't sure what the official reason for the rally's removal from the celebration is, she suggested that an increase in COVID-19 cases in the area could be a factor:

Stephen Curry, the Warriors' ace point guard who was awarded Finals MVP for the first time in his illustrious career, revealed why this season's championship meant so much more than previous ones.

"This one is obviously different because of the three years of baggage we carried coming out of that Game 6 loss to the Toronto Raptors in 2019," Curry added, alluding to that year's loss to the Raptors.

 "I don't know how many teams could carry it for as long as we have with the expectation of comparing us today to teams from the past and returning to the summit."

Despite the fact that there will be no rally on Monday, Golden State fans will undoubtedly be ecstatic to see the Bay Area celebrate yet another championship.
