Kobe Bryant, the memory of Jack Nicholson: “We’ll miss him”

The world of the NBA, and the whole world of sport, is remembering in these hours Kobe Bryant, who died yesterday in a helicopter crash. Movie actors also remember Kobe and among them is Jack Nicholson, a big fan of the Lakers and always present at Staples Center. The Hollywood actor has given an interview in CBS. This is his reaction: “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 Nicholson also spoke about his personal memory of Kobe: “In totality, just how great a player he was. I remember the first time I met him. It was at the Garden in New York and I offered him a basketball and asked him did he want me to autograph it for him. He looked at me like I was crazy.”

Touching words of Jack Nicholson, who thus ended his interview in memory of Kobe: “We’ll think of him all the time and we’ll miss him, he just was one of those touched people.”
