High Risers: A History of Tall Sock All-Stars

Nick Van Exel

TEAMS: L.A. Lakers; Denver Nuggets; Dallas Mavericks; Golden State Warriors; Portland Trail Blazers; San Antonio Spurs
CAREER:
 1993–2006
COMPLEX SAYS:
By the time Nick Van Exel entered the league in '93, knee-high socks had pretty much been phased out of the game altogether. Van Exel had his share of great moments as a youngster in L.A., but when he needed to turn back the clock as a vet with the Mavs, he suited up in the knee-highs for this clutch performance.  Must be the shoes? Nah, it's the socks, son!
