LAPD Already Planning For Lakers Parade

Interesting they are already preparing.

paradeRealGM: In an e-mail to the downtown community Tuesday, LAPD Capt. Blake Chow said that a Lakers victory parade could happen as soon as Monday, should the team sweep the Orlando Magic in four games.

A parade would begin at Staples Center about 11 a.m., travel south on Figueroa and end at the Coliseum about 1 p.m.

If the series takes longer to clinch the title, the parade could be held Wednesday, June 17th (if they win in five games); Friday the 19th (in six games) or Monday the 22nd (if it takes the full seven games).

Chow doesn’t have a contingency plan if Orlando wins the Finals.

  • Chris Brown

    uuum i kinda dont like the parade route

    it should end at staples but oh well

    i guess everyone is headed to the coliseum then to mbenga bust a slava with the dancing

  • Chris Brown

    *i meant mark not slava

  • Oriba

    I think it’s because in the past it was in the parking lot. But now that the LA live is there, the coliseum is the next best place.

  • Stephen

    I agree with Oriba, too premature

    if you stupid magic fans think your team can score 62.5% again during the playoffs your out of your damn minds… realize that even with that scoring percentage, your very lucky to have won that game by that close margin. also be happy that they didnt call that double dribble on Pietrus’s dunk that changed the games momentum

    I hope it will be hot on that day so I can strip down to my undies and wave my Laker Towel. I anticipate a Police Officer strip searching me that day and all he will find is a pocket full of condoms.
