Just up the street from USC at Staples Center, the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers, led by tenured head coach Phil Jackson and future hall-of-famer Kobe Bryant, won their second consecutive NBA championship over the Boston Celtics in a heated seventh game. Congratulations to the team and to the City of Los Angeles. It was certainly well deserved.
In the meanwhile, be safe everyone.
