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. Check out the pictures via Earl K. Sneed and Tas Melas:

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.
