Ozzie Guillen proclaims himself the Jack Nicholson of DePaul basketball

Ozzie Guillen has never been shy about patting himself on the back. That was evident on Wednesday when he called himself the Jack Nicholson of DePaul basketball:

Nothing says modesty quite like comparing yourself to a two-time Academy Award winner for Best Actor.

Ozzie Guillen DePaulNicholson, of course, has been a dedicated fan of the Los Angeles Lakers for over 40 years and mainstay sitting courtside for their games.

Guillen played for the Chicago White Sox from 1985-1997 and managed the team from 2004-2011. DePaul, which is also in Chicago, was a strong program during the late 70s and throughout the 80s, which may be when Guillen became a fan.

The Blizzard of Ozz has tweeted about his experiences at DePaul games in the past. He attended a game last February and also in November:

Ozzie would have to attend DePaul games much more regularly to even come close to earning a Nicholson comparison. But, hey, DePaul has been pretty bad lately, so at least we can commend Ozzie for his loyalty.

The Blue Demons got waxed 79-58 by Louisville Thursday to drop to 11-17. They were 12-19 last season.
