ROAR OF THE CROWD: In L.A., Gold, Allen & Leu note the L.A. Police Department estimated the crowd for Thursday's celebratory Kings victory parade "at 250,000." Later in the afternoon, "legions of fans packed every seat in the Staples Center." The crowd saved its "most explosive cheers" for coach Darryl Sutter. Fans also "stood as one" and "chanted 'MVP'" for Conn Smythe Trophy-winning G Jonathan Quick. Until now, despite "some playoff success and a slew of talented players, the franchise was probably best known for not winning the Stanley Cup despite signing the best player the world had ever seen" in Hockey HOFer Wayne Gretzky. But in the "glow of the champions, all seemed forgotten Thursday" (L.A. TIMES, 6/15).
