What a time it is to be a sports fan in Los Angeles. Just a few weeks after the Lakers took home their 17th NBA Championship, the Dodgers finally got one of their own. It had been 32 years since the Commissioner’s Trophy made it to Los Angeles, but no better time than 2020.
While Dodgers fans will have to wait to get their chance to see the trophy live in-person, at least we get to see it all over social media. The Dodgers have done what they can to bring the celebration to fans at home, and that has extended across town to Staples Center. Lakers owner Jeanie Buss made an appearance at Dodger Stadium this week and posted pictures holding the trophy.
The Lakers, much like the Dodgers, had to go through quite the struggle to get to their Championship. The NBA season was shut down with just a few games left back in March, and for a while, it looked like they may not get the chance to finish out the year. Fortunately, the NBA came through and provided a true bubble structure to make the season happen.
The Dodgers and Lakers have both discussed having a celebration parade for fans in the future. Once the pandemic comes to an end, there is even the possibility of the two franchises holding a joint celebration for the fans in Los Angeles. What a great time that could be!
