Outside the Staples Center One Hour Before Game 7 of the NBA Finals

E3 ended just as the Lakers and Celtics were getting ready to play game 7 of the NBA Finals.

The LAPD was on hand to deal with the craziness and we got some photos of the scene before the game and before the Lakers win led to rioting. We can't imagine what would have happened if they lost!


Cops waiting for the Lakers Crowd


This parking lot is starting to look like a battle zone!


The streets were lined with police cars!


Go Lakers!


The Lakers crowd heads to the Staples Center (except that guy with the sign)

And this is why all those cops were outside the Staples Center:


All in all they did a good job of keeping the rioting from spreading. Way to protect and serve, LAPD!
