Chesty Celtics Fan Once Tried To Bust Nicholson

We’re now only one day away from the Lakers & Celtics renewing their championship rivalry that was such a big deal in the ’80s. And in the recent craze of NBA nostalgia, the BOSTON HERALD looks back on one fan who tried to make a big difference with her big, um, support for her home team:

Busty Heart Celtics fan

Thanks for the mammaries, Busty Heart.

The well-endowed adult entertainer is remembered fondly by Celtics fans for trying to make a boob out of Jack Nicholson.

Busty (a.k.a Susan Sykes) was brought in during the 1987 finals as a measure of revenge against Nicholson, who galled the Boston Garden crowd by mooning them during one of the games. A plan was soon hatched to get Busty out to the Forum & a seat next to Jack:

With an oversized brassiere to guide her, a “Get Back at Jack” movement was launched. Soon, a local radio promotion had raised the necessary $10,000 to seat Heart next to Nicholson at the Finals.

“I’m 22, standing there with a basketball bra and I go to a seat with nobody checking a ticket next to Jack,” remembered Heart.

Just before halftime, Heart put her stamp on the Celtics-Lakers rivalry by adorning Nicholson’s balding head with the oversized bra and proclaming, ‘This is from the fans of Buston.’

“He got mad. He threw it,” Heart said.

Of course Jack hated it. He prefers his women very, very thin.

Oh, if only YouTube was around back in the day. Busty would’ve been a big hit - about two million in two weeks, we estimate.

So, does anyone have $10,000 available for a repeat performance?
