Clank clanck clank! It's the Lakers... and Santa too?

Clank clanck clank! It's the Lakers... and Santa too?

Today, in downtown L.A., it is a glorious day. Where in the city of angels every creature in purple and yellow will be stirring, including those who hardly get any play time. Kobe Bryant will not have to live with the ghost of Christmas Shaq, and Santa Jackson gets spoiled like a baby with a tenth ring in his stocking.

Rudolph the red-nosed Ariza will get accepted by his fellow deer and Santa Jackson after pulling the slay against the Magic, and the worker elf, little Derek Fisher proves his reliability. I don’t know if the same can be said for “Don’ter the Blitzen” (aka the inconsistent Lamar Odom) as he seems to be doing a lot more prancing than he does playing. He may not be allowed back in Santa’s shop come next Christmas season.

And even little Luke Walton, the token white elf, can be seen setting up trees with the worker bee Jordan Farmar, but not like the trees his father once grasped. And even in this time of merrious cheer, Zen is practiced, but perhaps not this coming year in L.A.

If you look closely you can see a Gasol standing tall, and a Bynum who is about to fall as they both stand underneath the mistletoe in The L.A. Day Parade!
