Chick Hearn Rumors

But there, just behind the opponents’ bench, a stone’s throw from some weirdo in a cowboy suit, sits the regal Marge Hearn, widow of the late, great Chick. She’s almost 94 now, and as far as anyone can tell, just entering her prime. That’s right, amid this zaniness, we still have Marge, who kept her husband grounded during his record stint as the best announcer in basketball history, who got him to the airport, packed his bags and smiled gamely as he needled her on the air. “Marge could’ve made that shot” or “Marge couldn’t go to her left either.” “He was such a comic,” she says now. “He would rib me on the air, and people would say, ‘Why do you let him do that?’ I told them because I thought it was funny.” “I would challenge anybody on how many games they saw,” she says. “Because I saw them all.”
