For those who are still a little weary of tomorrows today’s Lakers Championship parade — here’s some last minute info you should read before leaving your house (if you haven’t already).
The parade starts from STAPLES Center on Figueroa and goes about two miles to Jefferson. There has been some confusion, but to clear things up, there will not be a rally. Due to many reasons — low budget (no help from the city), violence, and bad fan behavior from last year are tops on that list — the team decided to take a pass this year. The team will not get off the double deckers and prance around. Each bus will be equipped with a mic and speakers for the players.
The turnout for today’s parade is expected to be HIGH. Fans will be lined up throughout the two mile stretch, it might get a bit chaotic.
Broadcasts from the parade will be available on all local channels, along with Fox Sports West. The parade can be viewed online at Lakers.com.

Good luck finding parking, hope to see you all at the parade. Let’s have a good time and close the door on the 2010 season.
