A parking lot operated by Shamrock Parking, Inc.

LOS ANGELES — Those Celtics’ fans looking for a bit of home cooking in Los Angeles have an ideal place to park their rental cars for this week’s games.

There’s a giant lot adjacent to the Staples Center on South Figueroa St. operated by Shamrock Parking, Inc. If the name doesn’t make Lakers’ fans cringe, the sight of a gigantic green sign with a white shamrock logo surely must give them the sweats.

Imagine a giant parking lot on Causeway St. opposite the Garden with the name Purple & Gold Parking or Lakers’ Lot. That parking unit would be renamed before you could say, “Larry Bird.” But no one seems to notice or care out here.
