From the LA Times:
The Lakers are only halfway to clinching the NBA Finals, but already the powers that be in downtown L.A. are thinking about the when-and-where of their victory parade.
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.
Will this hastiness curse the Lakers? Will Kobe go 1-of-46 in the next 4 games? Will Pau Gasol forget the triangle offense? Will Lamar Odom have to go in for massive dental surgey? I think so.
