2009 NBA Champions Los Angeles Lakers

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

The Los Angeles Lakers are 2009 NBA Champions! Today’s Game 5 against the Orlando Magic was won by a score of 99-86. That ends the NBA Finals series, with the Lakers winning four out of the last five games. There was some question about a Lakers Parade in Los Angeles this week, but it looks like it’s moving forward. We had closed our chiropractic office for the 2001 Lakers Parade, and the 2002 Lakers Parade, so consider this a 3peat for us. Many patients in our office are Lakers fans, so we may as well be celebrating together in the streets.

The 2009 LA Lakers Parade will begin on Wednesday at 11am near the Staples Center in downtown LA. The parade will end at the Coliseum where players and coaches will be honored for their efforts in the 2009 NBA season. If you’re planning to watch the parade, or attend the festivities at the Colosseum, plan on heading out early, as traffic in Los Angeles will no doubt be hectic.

LA Laker Parade Route — The 2009 Championship Parade begins at Figueroa and 11th St, just outside the Staples Center. The route runs along Figueroa, to the Los Angeles Coliseum. Admission to the LA Coliseum is free, and gates are expected to open at 9:30 a.m. Lakers fans are urged to arrive early, to avoid already heavy traffic in Los Angeles.

I suspect the parade will likely be covered by several local news agencies and television stations. When I get a list of local LA stations that are going to broadcast the parade on TV, I’ll update this post. If we’re lucky, someone’s also going to have a Web stream so those that can’t leave work can possibly watch the Lakers Parade live online.

Congratulations 2009 Lakers, you deserve it!
