The mayor of Los Angeles had some encouraging news to share with the fans of the Clippers and the Lakers.

Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles, said having fans return to Staples Center once the NBA playoffs begin is a “realistic timeline”.

“We don’t have dates yet for NBA. I would hope by playoffs, when one or both of our LA teams is in the playoffs–both of them should get there–we should have some limited capacity and get fans back.

To me, that is absolutely a realistic timeline, with the projection of the vaccines,” Garcetti noted, via Lakers Daily.

For the time being, the Lakers and Clippers fans are not allowed to enter Staples Center, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
