Jack Nicholson Sitting Courtside at Los Angeles Clippers Game

Say it isn’t so, Jack. The Long time Los Angeles Lakers fan has apparently traded in his yellow for Clipper blue and red. This cannot be real life, can it? Jack Nicholson has forever embodied what it meant to be the cool dude sitting courtside at the Stales Center and before that, the Great Western Forum, representing the Lakers. 

He’s now apparently embarrassed to call himself a Lakers fan and is representing what has quickly become the best team in California.

Is this on the same level of Brian Wilson turning in his San Francisco Giant orange and black for Dodger blue? What about Brett Favre going from the Green Bay Packers to the Minnesota Vikings with a stop in New Jersey in between?

No, it’s on a completely different level.
