It was anticlimatic, and they passed by much too quickly, but it was nice to get out and see all the Lakers fans.

I will post the first few so you can get a glimpse, I will update this post later tonight, along with a short video clip.

The pictures are mostly of the scene and the fans, I went to video mode to record the players.
