If there’s been one constant through the years at Staples Center, it’s been Oscar winning acting legend Jack Nicholson. He’s as much a part of Lakers history as Kobe Bryant, Shaq and all the other stars of the 2000s. But even with Kobe out and the team being stitched together with nobodies, good ol’ Jack is still court side and is apparently as grumpy as ever.
A video has popped up from the Lakers 120-118 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday that appears to show Nicholson telling Lakers head coach Mike Brown to move out of his way.
There’s no audio of what is being said, but it certainly looks like Jack is saying something the the Lakers head coach. As Deadspin pointed out, the craning of Nicholson’s neck combined with the fact that Brown acknowledges him and receives a back pat from Nicholson, seems to suggests something was said between the two.
What exactly that was, we won’t know, but it sure looks like grumpy Jack Nicholson telling the grumpy head coach of the grumpy Los Angeles Lakers to get out of his way. In all honesty though, counting the pours on the back of Mike Brown’s head is probably more interesting than watching a Lakers game.
