Yeah Larry was known here for being super fan friendly and just an overall good dude and good pro. You can't sign them all, he's got a life too. Could've had a bad morning or whatever who cares? He's human.

Reminds me of that clip with Nate Robinson who always struck me as a really nice, fan friendly dude. He's signing one side of the entryway, working down the line and the WHOLE time there is this little kid going "PLEEEEASE NATE, NATE PLEEEEASE" and after like 45 seconds you can see him audibly shaking his head like "damn..." before stopping where he was to go sign this kids one autograph to shut him up.

My point is I think they mostly all get that it's a privilege and they are lucky to have fans, that part of why they're rich yadda yadda... but they're human and get annoyed just like the rest of us. I'm sure if you search hard enough there are stories of even the perennial "nice guys" like Magic being nasty sometimes.

All I could think of off the top of my head was Shaq, Mihm for a cup of coffee with LeBron and Ira Newble for a couple games with Kobe.

Anyone else?


Top of my head, Carlos Boozer and Antawn Jamison.


Ronny Turiaf, Jason Kapono, Shannon Brown,...

Funny thing is, if LeBron comes to LA, the list will be increased by just one name. If Julius stays.

You gotta say no sometimes. And on the occasions that you do say no, there's going to be a parent with a phone taping it and crying how you dissed their kid.

It's like traveling to a third world country. You have these little kids that come and ask for money. The amount is so small that you want to give. As soon as you give to one, a bunch of them swarm all over you.

When you face that over and over, sometimes you just want to say no to the first one.

Like someone mentioned earlier, maybe LNJ just finished signing a bunch of autographs and cut it off and started walking away and this kid didn't get a signature so he chased LNJ down for one.


He didn't even look to the kid. Or said anything at all.

I think Larry is taking this trade harder then he's letting on. The post game interview gave me that sense.

And about the kid? I have no idea what that was. But I remember in LA he used to encourage fans to come and talk to him. That he was never unapproachable. Maybe that's Larry the Laker. Not Larry the Gold & Wine, Fear the Sword, Defend the Toilet.

I think Larry was happy about going home. JC on the other hand is a different story.

Or Larry knowing he's on camera vs Larry not knowing he was on camera

What's up with Larry playing Fornite with Josh Hart the night before our game with Cleveland? Forget the 4 screens going on at one time. Nance was wearing a Lakers T-shirt!

Growing up in LA, my LA females always had them legs cleanly shaven.

Having lived in the East Coast for nearly 15 years now, I'm still shocked, dismayed, horrified, at the unshaven legs during Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

Well, to be fair, that makes sense at least in regards to your days at Penn; even the women had every right to be afraid of that whole Sandusky thing.

Glad we traded Larry nance. He couldn’t take two seconds? It was just him and that kid in the open UCLA campus too...

you should at least maybe change neighborhoods....I was born and raised deep in Appalachia.....and even I never came across females under 40 that had that issue.

so. he was busy. You know for a fact he has sound 100's if not thousands of things for kids and adults. are you saying he doesnt get to not sign one thing for one kid one time?

personally im not feeling moms over there filming the encounters. then having something to say just because her kid didnt get what he wanted. these obligated to sign things for kids or adults ALL of the time. they do deserve a moment of peace.

I get not taking selfies with adult fans so that they can make it their FB or IG profile pic or whatever....but you gotta say yes to the kids. I got an autograph from Magic when I was in a bank when I was like 7 and it meant a lot to me. Not cool.
you dont have to say yes to kids every single time. cause half of the time they are being sent out for the autograph by some adult. most people dont even know that.

I’d never sign autographs or take pictures with strangers. Idolatry is a sin.

I’m friendly enough though, so I’d always have words of encouragement for kids. These days they need all the help they can get, just not in the form of autographs and pictures.

Bill Russell followed this philosophy religiously.

Why are people giving Larry a hard time for not signing something? You don't know what he was going through that day. He doesn't have time to sign an autograph for every single person that asks for one. It's disgusting that that mom released the video to twitter to try and shame Larry.

Cleveland is now learning the joys and pains of LNJR. Plays amazing and if you give him too many minutes, his body breaks. Hammy injury, out at least a few games.

The kid was not taught properly. His dad should have told him to address the man as Mr. Robinson. You’re asking a favor of him. Kid is lucky Nate is a humble Pinoy.
