    Man this one hurts the most, he was the heart and soul of our energy, definition of a professional, kind and locker room leader. I really pray nothing but success and health. Hopefully one day come back to the purple n gold. #seeyouatthedunkcontest

    This sucks. I liked Larry. Good luck in Cleveland. Keep your head down or Lebron will be blaming you for everything.

    Going to miss you bro! You are a true professional and an amazing teammate/human being. Its going to be a notable loss for us in terms of defense cause you embraced that role and your replacements in IT/Frye hardly play any.

    That being said, if George comes to replace you, our defense is back. So it was worth the risk and I'm positive Cleveland will embrace you like they did your Pops. I know you have a long successful NBA career ahead cause you have the right mentality for this business. Go get em Larry...huge loss for us for sure, but if the endgame is attained, it is most definitely worth the risk.

    Sad to see him go. But I doubt JC alone would have been enough to convince Cleveland to part with a 1st round pick.

    Amazing human being and constant professional. You'll be missed greatly. Already Josh and Zu have felt bad on twitter over this loss. Just shows how much he meant to many of our players on this team.

    Hoping nothing but the best for you.

    I was glad to see Nance coming off the bench and doing the dirty work... Never complained, always supportive. Tough to process this.

    I so f*cking agree. DLo for salary clear, and then Larry for a milder one? One effing money signing for another worthless player and I'm taking FO down.

    Oh well. We wish you the Nance. He's actually my 2nd favorite Laker. :(

    Damn, I’m gonna miss this guy. I didn’t like him as a starter, but I loved him off the bench. Our defense and rebounding will suffer in the short term replacing him with Frye, but I get that he had to be sacrificed for the pick and cap space. Still gonna be rooting for him in the dunk contest. He was a great teammate too, so well liked and played whatever role he was asked.

    I don't know about Clarkson, but Nance reportedly returned to the Laker facility to say bye to everyone.

    We'll definitely be missing Larry's great attitude, hustle and crazy dunks. He's a good guy and good teammate. I don't think anyone is happy to see him go. At least he's going home and hopefully his play will be appreciated there. Nice that he and JC will finally get a taste of the playoffs.
