EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) Larry Nance Jr. says he was "terrified" to speak to Kobe Bryant after the Los Angeles Lakers drafted him because of a tweet Nance sent out in 2012 criticizing Bryant.

Nance didn't have anything to worry about. Kobe accepted Nance's apology, and they're eager to play together in the fall.

Nance says he regrets the tweet, which read: "Gee I sure hope Kobe can keep his hands to himself in Denver again," with the hashtag "rapist."
