For as long as the Lakers have been in Los Angeles, the voice of Chick Hearn has been synonymous with the team. Even though he passed away in 2003, his voice is still heard on nearly every great Lakers moment throughout history.
Though he is no longer with us, his memory will continue to be carried on, especially through amazing pieces like this, from amazing artist, Scrojo.
It is a wonderful work of art that captures everything that was great about Hearn and his legendary style. Hearn coined a number of catchphrases during his time as Lakers broadcaster.
There are the basics that are used everywhere today, such as slam dunk, charity stripe, and air ball. Then there are the ones that only Lakers followers remember such as ‘he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar,’ ‘he put him in the popcorn machine,’ and ‘this game is in the refrigerator.’
Scrojo is an outstanding artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who has created over 1,500 posters and has worked with companies such as MTV, Nike, and Walt Disney.
This piece can be owned in limited edition fine art prints, stretched canvas, or metal for as low as $99.
