NBA Draft 2015: Larry Nance Jr. apologizes to Lakers fans for Kobe Bryant tweet, seems like a nice guy

New, comments

Larry Nance Jr.'s career with the Lakers got off to a strange start, but he's very sorry about everything that happened.

The Los Angeles Lakers drafted Larry Nance Jr. with the 27th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and it seemed like within minutes there was a brutal story stirring about an offensive Tweet he sent regarding Kobe Bryant back in 2012. Nance has since squared things away with Mr. Bryant, as he plans to call the Black Mamba, and took the extra step to apologize to Lakers fans for the incident:

That's just about as classy and genuine as it gets. It only seems fair to give the guy a clean slate and not hold something he decided to send into the abyss that is the Internet years and years ago. When Larry realized what had happened he felt sick to his stomach about the ordeal, he told media during his introductory press conference with the Lakers. There's no doubt he's sincere about this situation.

Good move, Nance. Now go dunk on some folks during Las Vegas Summer League.
