Nothing like shooting some hoops to work off grief.
Comedian Garry Shandling, who died last week at age 66, was remembered by a gathering of his friends over the weekend, as the funnyman’s pals met to play one last basketball game at his home.
Judd Apatow posted an group shot including himself, Richard Lewis, Kevin Nealon and many others posing underneath a basketball net, with the caption, “One last game of basketball at Garry’s house to say goodbye.”
On Sunday, Sarah Silverman tweeted a picture of herself and Shandling, both in T-shirts, shorts and sneakers. The “Jesus Is Magic” comedian noted, “I’m 1 of many comics that can say it- he made us feel special til we believed it. My teacher my friend my Garry.”
Lewis noted on his Twitter account that he was recovering from an injury that probably prevented him from joining
“In honor of Gary Shandling his weekly b-ball game went on,” Lewis wrote. “My broken wrist wouldn’t keep me away. RIP buddy.”
Shandling died Thursday of a heart attack. In the wake of the “Larry Sanders Show” star’s passing, the comedy world offered an outpouring of tributes to the comedian, with Judd Apatow, who wrote and produced numerous “Larry Sanders Show” episodes noting that Shandling “taught me everything I know.”
