no more lakers live? only ricky fox?

Former NBA legend Norm Nixon was arrested last night on suspicion of DUI.

Nixon was pulled over by California Highway Patrol just before midnight for having no front license plate on his black Ferrari. We're told officers smelled alcohol, so they gave him a series of field sobriety tests -- which he performed "poorly."

Nixon -- best known for his stint with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 70s and 80s -- was booked and posted $5,000 bail.

Fun fact -- Norm Nixon is married to Debbie Allen of "Fame" fame.



i'm thinking maybe he was at the event jordan had last night, a wine tasting charity event, for kids that are sick. it was a charity event for the UCLA medical center...trevor was also there and other teammates. at least it was norm and not one of the lakers

Yeah my friends and I noticed that too. He seems like he's drunk most of the time when he's on air. He has a hard time talking and he slurs alot when he speaks....Oh Well!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was still on the air tonight unfortunately. I have nothing against the guy as a person, but as a commentator/analyst, he's just horrible. He puts people to sleep. It's an absolute bore fest. He just doesn't have the voice, energy, or enthusiasm necessary.

BRING BACK JACK HALEY DAMN IT!! :angry:
