J.J. Barea Gets Parade in Puerto Rico
Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea became the first Puerto Rican-born player to win an NBA Championship earlier this month. He did his territory proud by draping himself in the Puerto Rico flag during the Mavericks’ trophy ceremony. Now Puerto Rico is paying him back with a parade and day in his honor.

It’s a little disappointing they didn’t pass by the billboard that takes a shot at Kobe Bryant on the parade route, but that gives us a flavor of how popular Barea is in his home area.
