This is a very, very sad day in L.A. and I'm sure it's been heard across the nation as well. this is very hard to accept on behalf of the fans, the Laker family and the NBA. It's gonna be very difficult to watch & listen to another the Laker game on KCAL9 (Lakers station) without hearing chick's voice.

He'll be missed greatly and all we have now is the wonderful memories he has left behind......much love and respect to one of the greatest announcers of the sportsworld, Rest in Peace Chick!!!


:cry: :cry:

RIP, was one of the better announcers in all of sports and I'm sure he'll be missed by Laker fans and all basketball fans in general.

Chick Hearn was like a monument to Laker players and fans representing the team as its definitive voice ,Like all great Laker legends he will never be forgotten so with that, the jello is jiggling, the butter's getting hard and the refrigerator 's door is permanetly closed. RIP

The Laker games are going to be hard to listen to without Chick there calling the game, the true voice of the Lakers. :(

I wanted to say this over:

<b>...the jello is jiggling, the butter's getting hard and the refrigerator 's door is permanetly closed. RIP</b>

A very sad day not only for Laker fans, but for all of basketball. To a man whose voice I've listened to for over 20 years, you'll always be remembered.

That is so good I had to bookmark the site just so I can go there anytime I would need a chickism!

Chick was a rare human being and the rarest of announcers. Glad you have an avatar for anyone who wants to honor his memory.
