Larry Nance was 'terrified' what Kobe might say about tweet

NBA Draft Basketball NBA

Larry Nance Jr. caught the attention of the NBA community when old tweets of his were discovered on draft night. One of his tweets referred to his new teammate Kobe Bryant as a "rapist" and made people wonder what would happen when the two met for the first time.

Bryant recently did an interview on BET where he said he forgave Nance for his tweet, saying it's "water under the bridge." Nance addressed the tweet, and

Bryant's reaction, during a session with the media Monday.

Nance also added he felt "sick to his stomach" about the situation and that he'll continue to refer to the veteran player as Mr. Bryant, something the Laker legend joked about.
