“This championship brings great pride to Los Angeles,” said Senator Boxer. “I congratulate the players, coaches, owner and general manager – and, of course – the fans. I am honored to commend the Los Angeles Lakers on winning another NBA Championship and the Lakers’ Head Coach Phil Jackson on making history by winning his 10th championship.”
Senator Feinstein added the following: “The Lakers are, in fact, the dream team of basketball. All I can say is ‘right on,’ and congratulations for a season well won.”
