    I think it looks awesome! It definitely looks much better than the Magic one in my opinion. And I love how you can sit next to him and take pictures! Very cool idea!

    A bit too big if you’re planning on taking a picture next to him. But looks great!

    i absolutely love chick and always will. A statue for him was long overdue and it looks great for the most part. The only thing that somewhat bugs me is the hand motion they constructed. To me, his hands looks slightly awkward and it looks like he is throwing up a gang sign from a distance. Nonetheless, overall it is pretty awesome.

      The game is in the refrigerator. The door is closed, the lights are off, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard and the Jello is jiggling.

    This is awesome for Chick’s family and his fans, of which I am absolutely one! I’d love to someday get to Staples just to see that and sit next to him! (Yeah, I’m big enough to pull it off, Kam) He was the heart and soul of the Lakers for me for over twenty years. Though I have never even been to L.A. or gotten to see the Lakers play live, his simulcast skills and silky smooth voice brought the game to life for me in a way nobody else ever could. It was like being transported through the satellite dish into the arena!
    Thanks for all the memories, Chicky-baby!!
