Standing on an arena balcony, Dirk Nowitzki led the Dallas Mavericks and thousands of fans in singing their new favorite song: "We Are The Champions."

Team owner Mark Cuban led fans in another round of the chorus, with Jason Kidd holding the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

The joyous scene came Thursday at the end of a parade honoring the NBA champs.

Dallas police say an estimated 200,000 watched the parade as temperatures approaching 90 degrees to enjoy a party 31 years in the making since this one is the first title in Mavericks history.
