The Larry Sanders Show star, who died suddenly and unexpectedly last week (ends25Mar16), hosted a star-studded game at his Mandeville Canyon home in Los Angeles every weekend, and just because he wasn't there didn't mean his celebrity pals stayed away.

They turned out in droves to honour the man who was a friend and mentor to many of them.

Jeffrey Tambor, Breckin Meyer, Kevin Nealon, and Richard Lewis also hit the court for the Shandling memorial game.

Filmmaker Apatow shared a photo of the group on Instagram, writing: "One last game of basketball at Garry's house to say goodbye."
