How bad are the Los Angeles Lakers? So bad that actor Jack Nicholson decided to walk out of a game with over seven minutes left.
Nicholson is one of the franchise’s most notable fans. He has been a Lakers season ticket holder since 1970 and a fixture sitting courtside at the team’s home games for years.
On Friday night, he appeared to be so disgusted with the Lakers’ play that he left the game with the team down 103-81 and 7:31 remaining. But that’s not all — Nicholson also took actor Adam Sandler with him.
The Lakers lost 116-101 to the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have now lost six in a row and are 15-21.
Kobe and Vanessa Bryant didn’t give up on their marriage, but Magic Johnson has divorced himself from this Los Angeles Lakers season. Facing their 6th-straight loss against the Thunder on Friday night, the former Lakers legend called it a season for the Lakers as they trailed by 16 at halftime. “It’s over for my Lakers. No playoffs, no nothing,” The Lakers ended up losing...
Lakers executive Jim Buss spoke with John Ireland and Ramona Shelburne on 710 ESPN radio Thursday where he primarily blamed injuries for the team’s 15-20 start. Here’s some of the transcript via Eric Pincus, Los Angeles Times.
Does the team need to make the playoffs to persuade Howard, who will be a free agent this summer, to stay long-term?
“If we make the playoffs, that means...
Vanessa Bryant has sold one of the three homes Kobe Bryant signed over to her at the start of their divorce proceedings last year. The 6,000 sq foot home is the former residence of Vanessa mother, Sofia. The couple purchased the property in 2003 for $2.65 million As far as the divorce, the proceedings are [...]
On the bright side for Kobe at least he isn’t getting divorced anymore. Call me crazy, but I think Bean is taking the losses a little harder than Dwight Howard.
Remember when Jim Buss said it is 95% that Dwight re-signs with Lakers?
He might have been using Romney math with that one.
Another day, another injury update for the Los Angeles Lakers. According to Dave McMenamin from ESPN LosAngeles, big man Jordan Hill will miss the rest of the regular season due to a hip injury.
Hill underwent an arthrogram test Friday on his injured left hip, and results showed that he has loose fragments in addition to a possible torn labrum, according to the Lakers.
While many media members buddy up with Dwight Howard because of his outgoing personality, Jeff Van Gundy is not falling for the act. Van Gundy believes that Howard got his brother, former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, fired in Orlando, and he’s not afraid to call out Howard when he feels it is necessary.
During the second quarter of Friday’s Oklahoma City Thunder-Los Angeles Lakers...
Look on the bright side…The Lakers are gonna get their highest draft pick in years! Ah, that’s right. They traded away all their picks through the 2030 season. It was a nice thought though.
I just don’t get it! But please, spare me all of the excuses…
“They hired the wrong coach…”
“They don’t mesh well on the court…”
“Dwight doesn’t make his free...
The Los Angelers Lakers got blown out at home by the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Staples Center Friday night, and even Lakers superfan (and legendary actor) Jack Nicholson couldn't stand it. Nicholson, along with actor/comedian Adam Sandler, used a fourth quarter timeout as an opportunity to head home early as the Lakers were down 103-81 with 7:31 remaining.
It was a smart...
LOS ANGELES -- There was a time when a 15-point win over the Los Angeles Lakers on their home floor was a cause for celebration. At least a smile or two. Not in the Oklahoma City Thunder locker room, though. Not with the Lakers just a shell of their former selves. Not with bigger fish to fry. These Thunder have their eyes on a grander prize. Oklahoma City built a 20-point...
We’re not sure what algorithm they used, but apparently 22 points was the tipping point at which Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler considered it acceptable to abandon another poor Lakers effort.
Nicholson and Sandler caught Friday night’s Staples Center event, which was billed as a game between the Lakers and Thunder. Instead, Kevin Durant dropped 42 points on the canary-colored...
The summer of our Dwightmare will begin soon, but Metta World Peace doesn't think he'll leave the Lakers. World Peace explains that the prize free agent won't leave since he has Howard by the ... uh ... man parts.
