Chick Almost Put Himself in Freezer

July 02, 1988

With 10:38 to go in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, Michael Cooper hit a three-point basket that put the Lakers up by 15 points. At that time, broadcaster Chick Hearn put the game in the refrigerator.

With 10 minutes to go, that is too early to celebrate. Not once did Hearn apologize for his outburst. Next time, Chick should put his foot in his mouth and celebrate with the rest of us at 0:00.
