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.

On the bright side, at least Nicholson wasn’t caught sleeping during the game this time.

  • Jack can't handle the truth.
  • Big deal, write about something important.
  • Maybe Jack has but rumor has it he is not in it for more than a couple of minutes guess he has a quick trigger for 2 things now.
  • Yeah, that's probably the same thing that you said about Rock Hudson until he got aids and died. Do you profess to know what happens in every bedroom in hollywierd?
  • Mephisto, were you treated badly as a child?
  • Jack goes to a game and Adam is with him so he must be gay. No! You are gay for suggesting such a thing and thats sad cause gay is not alright for Jack or anyone else. Gay is sick and so are the Lakers so do you want them to stay the same or get better? I say and Jack says he would hope they don`t stay SICK!!! Oh Adam too. Call him a Biotch to his face, ha ha.
  • This is a scene from the upcoming movie Anger Management 2!!! Go Buddy Rydell
  • Cant say much becuase I have walked outon 2 Sandler movies and a couple of Jacks films too when it is bad you leave
  • Is Jack's leaving more of a commentary in the team or on who is running the team? I think he's really fed up with Jim Buss. Jack knows more about basketball than Jim Buss does.
  • I rather go to a Laker game than a Adam Sandler movie. But the Lakers might win Sunday so they stay in the playoffs.
  • Jack needs another lesson in Anger Management from Adam.
  • Jack and Adam can handle the truth what they cannot handle is that D'Antoni is the worst coach ever making the Lakers play like chumps. He sucked here in Phoenix fo sure....
  • Who Cares?
  • Stupid.
  • No focus, no teamwork means no one in charge and total chaos.

    Too many "wanna-bees and too many "used-to-bees. And a whole
    lot of B s____t has ruined the Lakers.

    Someone ought to look into Kris Humphries who's a pretty decent
    ballplayer with a head for common sense and let him tell the
    Laker's who to hire to help him win.



























  • A jerk.
    Nicholson has been wasting his time for 42 years sitting at centercourt for Lakers games.
    People walk out of dunkingball games every day at every arena in the NBA.
  • Gee, and I thought people went to the game to actually watch the game. Who cares what Mr. Nicholson thinks about it. If all we had to do was keep track of how Mr. Nicholson felt about the game, we could have save a lot of money. If he grins, they're doing well...if he gets up and leaves with a no-talent actor, they must be doing awful. Who give a rats azz what he thinks? Maybe if we'd stop putting all these actors and sports figures up on pedestals we wouldn't be so disappointed when they fall.
  • If Nicholson and Sandler think the Lakers such and have let them down, try being a fan of ANY one of the professional teams that Chicago has to offer!
  • Time to purchase Clipper season tickets!
  • I THINK HE IS A SICKO...
  • Adam Sandler walking out? He has high standards? Have you seen many of his movies?
  • Typical Hollywood fair weather fans
