The 'Larry Sanders Show' star was a huge fan of the sport and often invited his friends over for a game.

And Sarah chose to remember his love of basketball in an Instagram tribute.

And as well as the basketball game, several of the star's friends, including Sarah, Ryan, Jesse, and Breckin, celebrated Garry's life at Craig's restaurant in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Sharing a group picture, 'Bring It On' star Jesse wrote: "A bunch of fans of Garry Shandling who were lucky enough to become friends of Garry Shandling.

"RIP brother, I don't think you even realize how much you will be missed."
