Laker Victory Parade

It's in progress right now. Nearly 100,000 people have reportedly assembled to greet the NBA Champions at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

You can listen live to the radio broadcast, and watch live online. Here's the route.

I have been listening and so far have gleaned a couple of important facts:

  • Josh Powell's hair is "blown out" for the occasion.

  • Kobe Bryant is wearing a shirt depicting a Nike puppet hand wearing four rings.

  • Sasha Vujacic is doing everything he can to get the crowd excited.

UPDATE: Jeanie Buss tweets that Phil Jackson skipped the parade to go straight to the coliseum, but missed out on a lot of fun, including the "biggest cutest smile" on Andrew Bynum's face, and fans throwing candy to Lamar Odom.
