Lakers Super Fan Jack Nicholson Mourns Kobe Bryant

Lakers super fan Jack Nicholson, who has been often seen sitting court side at Los Angeles Lakers games, is morning the loss of Lakers great Kobe Bryant.

Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, along with 7 others died in a helicopter accident on Sunday (January 26).

“My reaction is the same as almost all of LA. Where we think everything’s solid, there’s a big hole in the wall. I was used to seeing and talking to Kobe that… it kills you. It’s just a terrible event,” Jack told CBS Los Angeles. “I teased him the first time we met. It was at the Garden in New York and I offered him a basketball and asked him if he wanted me to autograph it for him. He looked at me like I was crazy.”

“I remember the totality of how great a player he was… We’ll think of him all the time and we’ll miss him,” he continued.

Our continued thoughts are with those affected by this terrible tragedy.
