Lebron James wants parade to celebrate 'city of champions,' Cody Bellinger agrees
LOS ANGELES - As Los Angeles celebrates not one, but two professional sports championships, Lakers superstar LeBron James is hoping fans can enjoy a parade.

As James made his case, Dodgers star Cody Bellinger appears to be all-in on the NBA Final MVP's plea. Bellinger tagged Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti to see if the city would grant James' wish.
As of Tuesday night, a parade appears to remain out of the picture for Los Angeles. Garcetti urged Angelenos on social media to keep in mind that "COVID-19 is still here and still dangerous."
Garcetti discouraged Los Angeles sports fans from hosting or attending parties or hang out in large groups.
Dodgers icon Vin Scully took to social media to urge fans to celebrate "properly." The broadcast legend said in a video message he hopes Los Angeles can set an example for the rest of the country.
"Let's do it the way the Dodgers did: With pride in themselves and pride in our great city. Let's show the rest of the country that we know how to celebrate the proper way," said the 92-year-old.
