EL SEGUNDO – The Los Angeles Lakers will hold their first ever Lakers Fan Jam at the Los Angeles Convention Center Saturday, March 20th from 10am to 10pm and Sunday, March 21st from 10am to 6pm.  Lakers Fan Jam is a unique experience for the whole family to enjoy.  Those in attendance will have the chance to get autographs from Lakers players, legends and broadcasters, see the Laker Girls and test their basketball skills with a variety of games like “Pop-A-Shot,” “Bungee Run” and “Sling Shot Jam.”

Basketball contests include, but are not limited to, “Kobe’s Clutch Performer Shootout,” “Derek’s Last Second Shot” and “Ron’s Relay Race,” plus a free throw and three-point challenge.  Guests can show off their jumping ability and dunking creativity on the Slam Dunk Courts with 7’, 8’, 9’ and 10’ hoops.

There will also be a Lakers Kid Zone, providing a variety of activities for younger Lakers fans including a mini court, mini net for dunking, boardwalk games and much more. 

Fans in attendance will have the opportunity to take a picture with the 2009 NBA Championship Trophy and measure up to their favorite Lakers by comparing their hand and shoe size, height and arm span at the Get-A-Grip and Walk of Fame areas.  Lakers players and Lakers legends will also make appearances throughout the weekend to sign autographs.  Fans can meet their favorite Laker Girls, who will provide special appearances, performances and clinics all weekend, including an autograph signing stage.
