LOS ANGELES (AP) - Actor Jack Nicholson was in his familiar courtside seat wearing his traditional sunglasses Tuesday night, cheering on the Lakers in Game 3 of the NBA finals.
It was a scene reminiscent of the 1980s, when Nicholson supported the Lakers at The Forum in Inglewood in their three finals matchups with the Celtics.
Actress Dyan Cannon, another fan dating back to the Magic Johnson-led ``Showtime'' Lakers, was also on hand as was soccer star David Beckham, a Staples Center regular since joining the Los Angeles Galaxy last summer.
Actors Denzel Washington, Dustin Hoffman, Timothy Hutton, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and actress Penny Marshall were others who showed up along with director Spike Lee and Playboy boss Hugh Hefner and the Girls Next Door.
Former Lakers standouts Rick Fox and A.C. Green, ex-Celtics Jo Jo White and Bill Walton, tennis star Maria Sharapova and European soccer players Didier Drogba and Darren Bent were in attendance. Boston's Kevin Garnett got the tickets for Drogba and Bent.
