  • EL SEGUNDO - Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak issued the following statement today regarding the death of long-time coach and broadcaster Dr. Jack Ramsay:

    Brooklyn probably picked up some culinary tips while hanging out with his bezzie mate, sixteen-year-old Jack Ramsay, at his family home - with the star attributing Jack and Guy Ritchie’s son, Rocco, as his two closest friends.

  • “I’ve been an admirer of Dr. Jack Ramsay since I was playing high school basketball in New York and he was coaching the 76ers. Although we never worked together directly, it was my pleasure and honor to have gotten to know him and join him in the NBA family over the past 37 years. On behalf of the entire Lakers organization, we send our deepest condolences to the Ramsay family.”

    Man, lucky kids. From World Cup to Lady Gaga con to Dodgers game, they get to go everywhere in LA! Brooklyn with his daddy David Beckham, and bros Cruz and Romeo with pal Jack Ramsay at the LA Dodgers game. ()
