    I feel like I lost a friend. Laker games will never be the same without him, he WAS the Los Angeles Lakers. There was no one better calling an NBA game than Chicky. He is irreplaceable. RIP to the man who coined the phrase, "slam dunk." He was the greatest. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Chick was an original and a true legend. He will be sorely missed.

    a run for a fourth championship ring will inevitably be dedicated to Chick. i was hoping he'd pull out of it, and be well enough to at least MC one more championship ring ceremony.

    Sad news guys, and I never really got to experience his voice and talent. I remember what an impact Cawood Ledford's ("Voice of the Wildcats")death had on KY fans after many years of calling their games. I'm sure it will be a heartfelt loss for all Laker fans.

    I used to be bothered by people who said Chick talked to much on TV broadcasts.....until I pointed out to them that the man was doing radio too! I found it weird watching all the games Chick missed last year. I actually turned to Chick on the radio during games that NBC showed....not just because I was so used to hearing Chick, but to avoid hearing Walton. [img]smile.gif[/img] If you can't finish the sentence "The lights are out, the eggs are coolin........" you don't know how much Chick and the Lakers went hand in hand.

    Oh I always turned off the NBC broadcasts to listen to Chicky. The only problem was there was a bit of delay from the radio to the TV, so Chick would stay stuff happened before you actually saw it. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    One of the great things about Chick was that despite being a Laker fan, the guy had no problem criticizing the team on the air when they were playing bad. He was not a homer, in fact he often talked more about the other team than the Lakers. I mean sometimes he was merciless on the Lakers, and several times this year during the playoff, I kept saying to myself, "Gee Chick, have a little faith, come on." [img]smile.gif[/img] It's a major loss for the city and the Lakers. Chick can't be replaced. We'll miss him, and I know as a diehard Laker fan, it's gonna be hard to watch the games without his voice attached to it now, I grew up on it, like so many others here.

    The Lakers have lost their Harry Carey...too bad. I liked the way that guy talked. It'll be weird not hearing him during the next season. My condolences...

    I'm not a basketball fan but my Dad was. I grew up hearing Chick on the TV. What a shame.
