JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Mother Nature rained on the Jacksonville Giants parade today so the ABA champions took the festivities inside to the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena

Basketball hall of famer Artis Gilmore made an appearance at the event, which was supposed to begin at 4 p.m. at Everbank Field but got moved due to the rain.

Two weeks ago, the Giants defeated the Dallas Vandals in two closely fought games by just one point each (85-84; 110-109), to win a second consecutive American Basketball Association championship.
