Really, who is this dude? Did Bill Plaschke go back to his Woodstock roots? New guy on the Lakers beat? Massage therapist? Secret spy for Phil Jackson in the Lakers locker room? Zen master to help with Kobe's death stare problem? Friend/business partner of Steve Nash? ESPN source? The possibilities are endless.
UPDATE: From several people, it is Los Angeles radio personality Vic "The Brick" Jacobs. Seems like an interesting fellow.
