Jack Nicholson is like anyone who heard the news that Kobe Bryant was killed Sunday in a helicopter crash - heartbroken.
But the Oscar award-winning actor wasn’t just a mere fan of the Lakers, He considered Bryant a friend.
Nicholson, who was frequently seen in his court-side seats watching the Lakers, spoke with KCBS news hours after the crash.
"My reaction is the same as almost all of L.A., where we think everything's solid, three'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," Nicholson said in the interview.
