dontLakers Examiner: For those of you that don’t know, the Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship victory parade will take place Wednesday starting at 11 a.m. pacific time.

Double-decker busses carrying Lakers players, coaches, and staff will head south down Figueroa from Staples Center and stop at the Coliseum, where a celebration will be held in front of an estimated 95,000 fans. Gates of the Coliseum open at 9:30 a.m., so get there early.

It’s been a couple years since the Lakers’ last championship, so if you plan on attending the victory parade, here are a few reminders about what you should and should not do:

DO: scream like you’ve never screamed before. This is the time to get crazy–take all that frustration from home and the office and turn it into the most powerful “Let’s go Lakers!” chant you can muster.

DON’T: address any players individually. I know how much you want to talk to Kobe Bryant. I know you want to personally thank him for renewing your faith in humanity. But he CANNOT hear you! Even if he can, he certainly can’t engage in a philosophical conversation with you. The only thing you’ll do by shouting “Kobe” for fifteen straight minutes is give the five-year-old girl next to you nightmares.

    what’s the point? the stupid Essays are gonna start something again anyways. Damn “IGNORANT FOOLS”. Do they not realize that it’s our/their own tax $ that they are destroying by trashing LA. Oh, I forgot most of them probabaly don’t pay taxes so they don’t care. Yeah i said it. If you don’t believe me look at all the pics and news coverage taken from Sunday and tell me what you see. Im not trying to start anything, im just pointing something out…Celebrate with Pride and Respect. Don’t trash the city the LAKERS are a CLASS organization. So the Fans should be the same. But of course certain ppl JUST DONT GIVE A BUCK!!!!

    I don’t mean to point out race or anything but I was focused on what ethnicity was trashing our city and all I could see was mexicans holding mexican flags and stuff. I mean here I thought crime rate was down and stuff, but when I saw the footage being televised, it was pretty sad. I really wanted to see more player interviews and game analysis after the game but all we could see after the game was them trashing our city.

    Glad I stayed home that night. I couldn’t imagine myself driving out of Staples that night and getting my car romped or smashed. What’s up with police not even doing anything after the game letting em tear down trees and branches from Staples??!!

    I guess we need the military next time.

    Yeah, it’s a pity these ignorant asses can’t see how stupid they look. I’ve been to the 2000 and 2001 parades and they were fun and uneventful. I feel this will be the same. This one looks bigger and better than those were. I wish I could go! Great job Lakers. let’s do it again!

  • Lakers_The_Truth

    I am a huge Laker fan but seriously those parades in the end are full of people who are there trying to find something bad to do or bully someone.
    I much rather watch it on TV and put my Laker flag on my car than celebrate with a bunch of low class people that are trying to cause chaos. Of course a lot of real fans will be there and show their passion, but I think those are the minority unfortunately.

    Wow!….after reading all of the previous posted messages, I think me, my seven year old daughter and five year old son will also be watching the parade on T.V. if its televised. As much as we would love to celebrate and get a glimpse of the players, I think we would be much safer at home. I can’t see myself in the getting lost in the massive crowd of people anyway….and I’m sure that if we were to get a decent spot we would have to practically be there at 6 in the morning!

    Does anyone know what channel it will be broadcast on?
