I was saddened to hear this over at another forum:

LG.net: It is with deep sadness that I must announce the passing of a great member of this community. Phil Allen, known simply as "Phil" here, was hospitalized this past week after a car accident. Before he passed, LG and all of you were in his thoughts.

His niece said to say, "Phil is with Chick, high in the bleachers enjoying every Lakers game."

Well said.

The family said they prefer to remember his life without too much continued sadness about its end, and no response outside of this community is needed.

LakersGround has no flag to fly at half mast. We have no 21-gun salute. So, sound the cannons of your heart. Shed a tear for a loved one. Make a toast in his honor. Our dear friend, Phil, will be missed.


For those who know him, he was one of the best people you could ever associate with, and one of the biggest fans. We are all deeply saddened by this news and no doubt the entire "TLN" family will keep his family in our most precious thoughts and prayers.

I'd like to add people like Jim (The Nugget) and myself had the pleasure of associating with him on more than several occasions. He was a class act and a friend to us. He will be deeply missed...

WOW! I'm at a loss for words.

I just talked to him a couple of weeks ago.

Rest In Peace, Phil.

As always, this hurts as much as hearing about the passing of a family member you haven't seen since the family reunion.

I will say a prayer for him as a Laker brother. A real loss to the Laker family.


From everything I remember about him, I can say people who knew him will mourn his absence (in person and on the net). People who never got to converse with him are the ones who really lost here.


Rest In Peace and may light bath you in your grave and the hereafter. Ameen.

Some of us members from Lakerstalk.net held BBQ's and a basketball game somewhere local in Los Angeles.

For those who didn't meet the man personally, here are a few pictures so you can put a face to the man. These pictures of Phil were taken from the late T.I.

Phil is wearing the purple tee...
