With the 2010-2011 NBA season just around the corner I thought we’d take a quick look back at the 2010 LA Lakers victory parade.
Kobe and the boys were received by thousands and various reports state that the police were unwilling to release an estimated number of people in the crowd.
It was definitely a party and the city was just as jacked as the players were that there boys had knocked off the Celtics to bring home the Larry O’Brien trophy and hang another banner in the rafters of the Staples Center.
Check out a few photos of Kobe and the team from that crazy day!(352) 497-95355125940235, Teams
