:(... Although I'm personally a Laker hater, you really hate to see this. Great voice for the game, pretty innovative too.

He was THE best, hands down. I felt horrible reading about it this morning and will miss him greatly.

And props to (Laker Hata) CRZ for putting the RIP Chick Hearn on the front of / today.
