In fact, the veteran actor was so disappointed in his team's performance that he grabbed pal Adam Sandler and together, the two thespians who often go to games together left the building. The duo disappeared even though there were more than seven-and-a-half minutes left in the competition.
At the time of this obvious and, some may say premature, departure, the score was 103 to 81, and not in the Academy Award winner's team's favor. So, Jack removed himself from the venue, making Sandler join him as he did so.
In the end, the Thunder won in a score of 116 to 101, making that six losses in a row for the Lakers. So, even though Jack Nicholson has Lakers season tickets and has been a mainstay sitting court side, rooting for the team, since 1970, the distinguished and yes, discerning, actor may be so disgusted with his Los Angeles team that he may just not return.
So that leaves one very good question for Jack Nicholson to answer: Who gets the tickets if he decides not to continue rooting for his home team? Are there any Lakers fans left who want to commit to those very prominent seats? Will Adam Sandler take over where Jack Nicholson just may well leave off? One has to wonder.
