Denver Nuggets Players - Nick Van Exel

I took a family trip to San Francisco over Valentine's Day weekend in February 2000, which just happened to coincide with the NBA All-Star game being held there. Bonus! Even better was the fact that Nick (not playing in the All-Star game that year) was staying at the same hotel we were. When I saw him hanging out in the hotel lounge, I asked him if he wouldn't mind a photo. He was friendly and allowed my wife to quickly snap this photo. It felt strange to be taller than an NBA stud like Nick, but he was definitely broader, stronger, and well... better dressed.
