Why am i having trouble finding sideline pics of Donald Sutherland from last night's game? Turns out the guy sleeping next to the Lakers' chief rabblerouser Jack Nicholson in the front row is actually Lou Adler.
Lou Who? He produced records for Sam Cooke, The Mamas & the Papas and Carole King among others. He also directed Up in Smoke. And apparently him and Nicholson are best pals.
Well, if they're such great friends, how come Strother Martin snubbed Jack as Tommy Chong's dad (Arnold Stoner) in UIS?
Now this guy? Smart money says he was sired by Adler (or Drew Carey). Could be any one of Lou's four youngest sons - Manny, Pablo, Oscar, Ike.
Not especially likely that was Cisco Adler next to Nicholson last night.
So what do we have to look forward to for the game six sideline in Boston on Tuesday? Mistaking somebody from the Scalabrine brood for Michael Rappaport seems realistic.
Here are some game five thoughts from somebody who knows better.
