Chick Hearn passed away at 6:30PM at Northridge Hospital. It is a sad day for the Lakers, the league, and the entire world of basketball. Chick painted the images of Lakers games with his colorful words and descriptions for over four decades. His streak of over 3,300 consecutive games will never be beat. The Lakers were a labor of love for Chick and for years Lakers fans loved him back. He will be missed by basketball and sports fans everywhere. Good bye, Chick, and thanks for the memories.

  1. It feels like I lost an uncle. Chick was the best. Everytime they televised games on NBC on the weekends I’d turn down the volume on Marv Albert or Bob Costas then I’d switch the radio to AM 570 to hear Chick. The man has been with me since the early 80s. The first Laker game I went to I was just as excited to see Chick as I was Magic Johnson. He will be missed
