After the utter domination by the Los Angeles Lakers of the Boston Celtics  in Game 1 of the NBA Finals; Boston fans didn’t have many good things to talk about.  However, as usual when there isn’t anything positive to say about the performance of the hometown Celtics, do the next best thing……insult your oppositions fans.  Well, that’s exactly what the Boston Herald did in a recent article when they asked Celtics supporters to vote on the most annoying LA Laker celebrity fans and here are the results:

Spike Lee– 28%

Jack Nicholson – 27%

Tom Cruise – 22%

Mark Wahlberg – 10%

Rick Fox -4%

Leonardo DiCaprio – 3%

Dyan Cannon – 2%

Others – 4%

As impressive of a list as this is, the Sports Mole has a few problems with two of the people who received high vote tallies.  Shall we start with Spike Lee?  I’m not sure, but isn’t Spike a New York Knicks guy?  Yah, I thought so.  Spike lives and breathes everything New York, which begs the question why he would be cheering for the Lakers?  I think it’s clear that if the Knicks aren’t being represented in the NBA Finals, well then the next best thing is rooting for any team playing the hated Celtics.  The second problem I have and perhaps the most perplexing is since when is Tom Cruise a sports fan?  Does he think that since he played the lead role in the sports movie Jerry Maguire that he automatically knows what he is talking about when it comes to shooting hoops?   Honestly, if you ask me the only reason Tom Cruise goes to Lakers game is because he wants to come off as a more manly man.  After all his wife, Katie Holmes is almost two feet taller than him and clearly wears the pants in that marriage. I’m not a doctor, but if I had to diagnose Maverick, I would say he is likely suffering a severe case of little big man syndrome.  I can guarantee you that when I think of celebrity Laker fans, Tom Cruise’s name is no where near the top of the list.  To be honest I think this list compiled is quite pathetic and that there are a lot more deserving names that should be put on this list like Dustin Hoffman, Sylvester Stallone, Snoop Dog, Adam Sandler because I thought it was most annoying celebrity Laker’s “fans” not tag-along groupies.
