Good evening everyone and welcome to Staples Center (no “the”) where we are waiting for the start of Game 4 between the Celtics and Lakers.
It’s 5:40 EST, and Big Baby is the first one on the floor to warm up. Strange that Ray Allen, usually the first to arrive, is not out here for his pregame shooting routine.
Funny moment at center court just now… ESPN, which predictably has about a thousand people here, sent everyone out for a team photo. Of course, there are so many people that the photographer had to climb to the top of a 30-foot ladder just to get them all in the shot!
Also, we finally spotted those Laker Flags that many Celtics fans ridicule. They are stuck to just about every car driving around the arena right now.
