Jack and Spike have become more than fans for their teams.
Half of the people reading this are probably thinking, “That's dumb. Spike Lee and Jack Nicholson aren't even real mascots.” And the other half probably saw this and just nodded their head in agreement.
And that's what makes Spike and Jack so ridiculous. A lot of people would actually consider them unofficial mascots for the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers and Knicks don't have official mascots, so why not? Jack and Spike have already become as deeply ingrained into their team's culture as guys like Magic Johnson, Patrick Ewing, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Walt Frazier.
Jack is at every single Lakers' home game, and rumor has it that film directors actually have to shoot around home games to make sure that there's no schedule interference.
Spike, on the other hand, is an ardent Knicks fan and only happened to spur on one of the most memorable moments in NBA history, Reggie Miller's Game 5 performance in the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals.
It might be crazy, but Spike Lee and Jack Nicholson are pretty much mascots.
