Ralph Lawler has always been a star among the Clippers faithful.
And in 2016, that stardom is headed to Hollywood as Lawler, the team’s longtime broadcaster, will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it was announced on Monday.
Lawler, who’s being inducted under the radio category sometime next year, joins the class of 2016 with the likes of Kevin Hart, Quentin Tarantino, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, Kurt Russell, Tracy Morgan, Kathy Bates, LL Cool J, Bruno Mars and more.
"This is one of the great thrills of a very long and rewarding career," Lawler said. "I think it is also a further indication of the Clippers’ ascending position in the community. It’s a great day for my family and me."
Lawler, who will call his 37th season of Clippers basketball (a good part of them with Prime Ticket) in 2015-16, was also honored with "Ralph Lawler Night" at Staples Center in early March.
Lawler joins Los Angeles TV/radio legends Chick Hearn (Lakers), Vin Scully (Dodgers) and Bob Miller (Kings) on the Walk of Fame.
"Ralph’s love for the game and this team are on display every night,” said Doc Rivers, Clippers’ head coach and president of basketball operations. "I look forward to him broadcasting Clippers games for many years to come."
