Being around Kobe Bryant, Jack Nicholson knew that he was meant for greatness.

Even though the 82-year-old Oscar Winner has stepped back from the spotlight, he remained to be the number one Lakers fan who would cheer on his team at the Staples Center. And as the whole world was saddened by Bryant’s heartbreaking loss, he paid tribute to the NBA Legend. He said in a rare interview with CBSLA that he mourns the same way as all of L.A. He shared that he was used to be with Kobe and talking to him and hearing the news kills him. He added that the loss of such a legend is a terrible event that surprised everyone.

Nicholson shared on how they first met and it was him teasing Kobe. The actor recalled their first meeting at the Garden of New York and he was joking about offering a basketball to Kobe and asking him if he wanted it autographed.

After some time, Nicholson became Bryant’s cheerleader. He shared that he would sit right behind his jump shot corner on the left side. He even said that as Kobe releases the ball up, he could tell in an instant if it’s a goal or a miss. He added that he remembered the totality of Kobe being a great player. The actor said that he will be thinking of him all the time and will miss him a lot.

On Sunday, the 41-year-old NBA legend tragically died when his helicopter crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, California. The shocking accident also took the life of her 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant and seven other passengers on board.

The Staples Center, Madison Square Garden, and LAX paid tribute to the fallen legend by lighting up in purple and yellow. His fans and friends including Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Derek Jeter, Barack Obama, Vanessa Hudgens, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift marked their social media to honor one of the greatest athletes of our time.

His former teammate Shaquille O’Neal wrote how the pain he was feeling couldn’t be described by any word. He said that he loved Kobe and the legend was like a little brother to him. They used to talk often and those are one of the things that O’Neal will miss very much. He added that Kobe was a fierce competitor and one of the greats of the game. He also admired Kobe for being an amazing father who loved his family deeply and was a proud dad in his daughter’s love for the basketball game.
