:(... 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.

BTW, he apparently got the nickname when some of his friends, as a prank, gave him a mystery present, which turned out to be a chicken.



You're all so WONDERFUL. Why did they ever have to remove you from the continuity? You'd have made for MARVELOUS stories. You WILL make marvelous stories. And the FIRST story of the new world will be a story of REVENGE! -- The Psycho Pirate, Animal Man 23, May 1990.

Looks like AI wants out. ESPN.com - NBA - Stein: Iverson packing, but for where? Considering how many times over the years that the Sixers have cried wolf in regards to trading Iverson, I'll believe it when I see it.
