Since Magic Johnson, the closest the LA Lakers had to “showtime” was Nick Van Exel, who spent his first five NBA seasons with the team.
At times, Van Exel, a 1998 All-Star, shined with greatness, but never really got as far as being ranked among the greats like Johnson, Gary Payton or John Stockton.
During his NBA career, Van Exel appeared in 880 NBA games (670 started), averaging 14.4 ppg, 6.6 apg in 32.9 minutes on the court.
Yet, Van Exel scored over 12,000 points and handed out over 5,000 assists and left enough of NBA highlights for today’s NBA fans to enjoy.
