It seems Jack Nicholson CAN handle the truth of the Lakers sucky season ... showing up to the game Sunday after hinting to TMZ Sports that he might be putting his fandom on hold for a while.
We ran into Jack last week in L.A. and we asked the screen icon if his nearly 30 year love affair with the Purple and Gold is in jeopardy due to the fact that the team stinks to high heaven.
At the time, Nicholson seemed to indicate that he might be willing to sell his tickets, thus giving up his #1 fan status forever.
But when the Lake Show took on (and lost to) the OKC Thunder on Sunday at Staples, Jack was back where he used to always be ... courtside.
Thank you Laker Girls.
