Nickey Maxwell Van Exel, the son of former Lakers star, Nick Van Exel, was sentenced to 60 years in prison for murder in Texas on Friday.
His boy, aged a mere 22, was found guilty Thursday of shooting Bradley Bassey Eyo in 2010 and sentenced to a staggering 60 years behind bars, leaving him 82 by the time he sees the light of freedom.
Nick Van Exel was selected by the Lakers with the 37th overall pick in the 1993 NBA draft.
Before the arrival of Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant in 1996, Van Exel was the team’s leader and go-to player.
Van Exel played with the Lakers until 1998, then was traded after an All-Star season for Tony Battie and the draft rights to Tyronn Lue.
He is currently on staff with the Atlanta Hawks in player development.
