LeBron James calls for “joint parade” for “city of champions” Los Angeles

Following the Los Angeles Rams sensational Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, NBA star, LeBron James has revealed on his Twitter account that the city should host a joint victory parade for three of its city’s winning sports franchises.

Both the LA Lakers (James’ team) and the LA Dodgers won championships in their respective sports in 2020 (basketball and baseball), though, due to the pandemic, neither were able to celebrate properly, which, following the Rams’ victory, has prompted James to call for a joint parade.

2021/22 Championship on the cards?

It could well be that by April, James has something else to celebrate. Currently ninth in the Western Conference, with over 20 games remaining, the Lakers will be hopeful of making the play-offs at least, if they can emerge from their recent bad patch.

The Lakers have had a mixed season so far, though the recent Rams’ victory could give the NBA side the lift that it needs to rediscover its form and see them climb up the standings.

While a joint parade seems unlikely at such short notice, there is no reason why the city can’t play host to another one over the next few months.


Great for the city of Los Angeles

The Rams’ recent win has been greeted with much excitement in Los Angeles, with Mayor Eric Garcetti paying tribute to their efforts: “What a day in Los Angeles,” he said. “This town has the best teams and fans in the world, and we can’t wait to show off our L.A. pride with a display that only Hollywood could deliver. Go Rams.”

Meanwhile, Rams’ COO Kevin Demoff revealed: “Winning a Super Bowl for Los Angeles and our fans in our home stadium is a dream come true.

“We are grateful to the city, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Hollywood Sign Trust to allow us to recognize this historic championship by turning the iconic Hollywood sign into a celebration of our fans and our community.”
