Chick Hearn 2000

Selected audio highlights from the 1999-2000 Championship Season

A tribute to the legendary Lakers announcer

As the century turned, my Lakers fandom compelled me to use the archaic power of magnetic tape and rabbit-ears antennae (thank you KCAL) to memorialize Chick Hearn. I taped games on VHS, logged the runtime when he said something memorable, then compiled my favorite sound bites onto cassette.

The resulting compilation is approximately 13 minutes long and will elicit tears of glory from most Lakers fans.
