Jack Nicholson made an appearance at a Los Angeles Lakers playoff game on Friday night. There have been rumors that he has health problems that keep him from leaving his house.
The three-time Oscar winner got a sort of hero’s welcome when he and his son Ray sat courtside at Crypto.Com Arena in LA to watch the Lakers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 125-85.
Several famous celebs came up to Jack to welcome him back to one of his favorite things to do, which was to watch the Lakers play live from the floor of the arena.
Larry David, who was in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” came over to meet Jack before the first-round playoff game.
Legendary Lakers player LeBron James stopped his warm-up to talk to Jack and give him a hug.
Tee, the father of Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant, posed for pictures with Jack, who gave a thumbs-up to the photographer.

A reporter also got involved and told Jack,
Since October 2021, it was the first time anyone had seen Jack Nicholson at a Lakers game. There were rumors in the tabloids that Jack had stopped going out because his health was getting worse.
However, there was no hint of Jack Nicholson’s rumored demise.
He was wearing his usual black shades and flashing his famous Cheshire grin, so he seemed to be in a good mood.
Jack, it’s good to see you. We hope to see you again soon.
