Former #Lakers announcer Chick Hearn would have been 100 today. Late in any basketball game when a team goes up 8-10 in the final few minutes, I think “This game’s in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard, and the Jell-O’s jigglin’!”

Radio broadcasts of basketball aren’t the same without Chick. He painted a picture of the Lakers games so beautifully with his distinctive voice.

Listeners in Los Angeles were blessed with the two greatest play by play broadcasters of all time in Chick Hearn for the Lakers and Vin Scully with the #Dodgers

On behalf of Lakers fans everywhere, happy 100th birthday Chick Hearn.
