The Los Angeles Lakers have one of the biggest fan bases in the world, and it appears that Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been a major voice of authority throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, is amongst that group.

Fauci recently exclaimed that the Lakers will “for sure” be named NBA champions this season.


Sadly, Fauci also said that it would not be the best idea to hold a celebratory parade in the event that the Lakers do indeed win the title.

On the season, the Lakers are 49-14. That record is good for first place in the Western Conference.

While they are a certainty to advance to the playoffs, there is no telling just how deep they will be able to go.

Surely, the leadership of superstars Anthony Davis and LeBron James makes them one of the major favorites to win it all.

If they do end up winning, it will be the franchise’s 17th title. It will be James’ fourth of his career and Davis’ first.
