This is part of the reason why I hate seeing the Lakers in the post season. Everytime there is a game in LA, the networks ALWAYS show shots of celebs in attendance. Yeah, I get, it is Hollywood, there will be famous people all at the game. Now, can I watch the game in peace with out the camera man showing some actor every 5 minuets?

I'd like that too, but it won't ever happen. NBC used to do it, and ABC is ruthless with it

That is the main culprit!

Seriously, most of the celebs are there just to be seen. I'm sure a good chunk don't know, or even care about the sport.

I know Jack is a HUGE Laker fan, but I get tired of seeing his grill all the time, too.

I agree, there was this video I saw on youtube where a Lakers TV announcer was interviewing Nicole Richie, when asked what she was doing there, she said something like "I want to have sex with Kobe" It's pretty tiresome to say the least.

And does Jack ever take those shades off?

I know what you mean, the governor of New Mexico was there in the front row mixing with the celebs too, Im tired of seeing this crap with all the celebs being followers. Its like the Kentucky Derby, they just go to be seen.

I don't care about celebs so I don't care if they show them. If they want to show some gal looking incredibly hot then fine....and if she happens to be a celeb then whatever.

Or even worse, when they show the outside shots of the beaches and palm trees like that is all LA is about. Why don't they show skid row??

I like seeing Jaaaccckk go crazy and start talking to the refs when he feels they made a bad call. I really like when he talks to the star player(s) after the game when they lose to LA. Speaking of Jack, shouldn't he be a Knicks fan or something?
