Extractions: It was all a misunderstanding, Nick Van Exel says now. "You've just got to get to know me," he explains, and by that, we don't think he means knowing him the same way Del Harris knew him, or the way referees knew him, or the way his teammates knew him in the Utah series. He probably means the way his family knows him, the way his anger-management counselor knows him, the way his new Denver employers undoubtedly feel about him as their honeymoon begins. "Sometimes I put myself in situations where people can make judgments about me like that," he says. "And then there are other times when some peoplejust because they have a pen and padthey just go overboard with it." We plead guilty, with a convenient excuse. We've seen the Good Nick, we've seen the Bad Nick The combination of the two is consternating.

Basketball SATURDAY'S LATE NBA GAMES By Associated Press, 12/1/2003 Nick Van Exel showed his leadership skills Saturday night. ADVERTISEMENT Van Exel scored 16 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Golden State Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs, 91-89, in Oakland, Calif. Van Exel, playing a backup role because of a sore left knee, either tied the score or gave the Warriors the lead with five of his seven fourth-quarter baskets, including a long 3-pointer with 20 seconds left. "He's giving the other guys confidence because of his ability to hit shots," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. Golden State has won four in a row. "I can't be afraid to take it," Van Exel said. "That's the way I've played all my life. If I miss it, I fail. If I make it, I help the team, and that's what it's all about." Said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich: "Nick is Nick. He loves that mano-a-mano stuff. He got it done for them."

Extractions: A year ago, the Kings' nemesis wore jersey No. 31 and a sneer. Nick Van Exel devastated the Kings during last season's Western Conference semifinals. The guard scored 36 points in a Game 2 victory, then scored a playoff career-high 40 in a 141-137 double-overtime victory. The icing was 23 points, including four three-pointers, in a 112-99 Game 7 triumph. During this season's Kings-Mavericks series, Van Exel has been far from the fray, traded during the offseason to Golden State and now sitting in street clothes in a television studio. Players for the Kings, who lead the series 2-0, didn't hesitate when asked if the Mavericks miss Van Exel, particularly with Michael Finley and Steve Nash struggling to find their offensive game. "When they traded him, I remember being in the locker room (with teammates) and saying, 'It's a different team,' " Kings forward Chris Webber said Wednesday. "Last year, we feared him. You need someone who is willing to be the scapegoat, willing to be the bad guy, who gives all the good guys confidence.
DenverPost.com - Nuggets Basketball He s unbelievable, Nuggets coach Dan Issel said of point guard nick van exel, who scored anybody in the league I d rather have with the basketball than nick http://18.104.22.168/nuggets/game0204.htm
Extractions: Denver Post Sports Writer Feb. 4, 2001 - WASHINGTON - Just in the Nick of time, the Denver Nuggets won a road game, won the back end of back-to-backs, kept alive their playoff hopes. And smiled again. In the Nick of time. "He's unbelievable," Nuggets coach Dan Issel said of point guard Nick Van Exel, who scored Denver's last eight points Saturday night in a 105-100 victory over the Washington Wizards at the MCI Center. "We've seen him do it time and time again. I've said it before and I'll say it again: When the game is on the line, I don't think there's anybody in the league I'd rather have with the basketball than Nick." A third straight road loss for the Nuggets (27-21) could have been disastrous, but Van Exel singlehandedly wouldn't allow that to happen. He converted two free throws with 1:41 remaining to put the Nuggets up 99-95. Then, after a clutch 3-pointer by Washington's Mitch Richmond, Van Exel buried a 3-pointer of his own to put the Nuggets up 102-98 with 40.8 seconds to go. Juwan Howard scored on a short jump shot to keep Washington behind but breathing, but the 6-foot-1 Van Exel, ignoring any pain from the torn tendon on the bottom of his foot, decided to go inside with the big boys. With the game on the line, Van Exel drove down the lane. He was bumped on both sides by Wizards, but somehow he managed to toss up a running jump shot amid the rubble. So his shot wouldn't get blocked, Van Exel lobbed it with a high arc. It fell almost straight down and through the net with 12.6 seconds remaining - as pretty as a rainbow for the Nuggets. A whistle sounded. Possible three-point play.

Extractions: Denver Post Sports Writer Jan. 26, 2001 - SALT LAKE CITY - For a Denver Nuggets team trying to prove something on the road, Utah's Delta Center was a tough place to do it. Even the scoreboard operator seemed to be against them Thursday night. Nuggets guard Nick Van Exel was assessed a technical foul with 1.3 seconds remaining and the score tied when he asked for a timeout. Denver did not have any timeouts remaining, although the scoreboard erroneously showed that the Nuggets had one left. Utah's John Stockton converted the technical free throw, then made another technical free throw when Van Exel protested the call too vigorously. After baskets by Stockton, the Jazz (27-14) escaped with a 98-96 victory. "It's been 17 years for him," Utah center Olden Polynice said of Stockton. "I think he has done that a few times before." Utah has won 21 of 23 games against the Nuggets (25-18) in games between the Midwest Division rivals at the 10year-old Delta Center. This one was tough for the Nuggets to take. They held as much as a 13-point lead in the third quarter and were up 90-83 with 4:40 remaining in the game.

Extractions: The league on Wednesday slapped Nick Van Exel with a seven-game suspension and an NBA-record $25,000 fine for the incident during the Nuggets' 98-91 victory Tuesday. Van Exel shoved referee Ron Garretson onto the scorer's table following Van Exel's second technical foul. The ejection carries an additional, automatic fine of $1,000. Van Exel was arguing a call with Garretson during a timeout and received a technical foul with 3:23 left in the game. Van Exel argued briefly near the scorer's table and was slapped with a second technical, calling for an automatic ejection. Van Exel began to walk away from Garretson, but then suddenly turned back and pushed the referee onto the scorer's table. Johnson stepped between the two and held Garretson while Van Exel was restrained by a team official. Nick Van Exel of the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio's Monty Williams were suspended without pay for two games each by the NBA on Tuesday for fighting. With 4:02 left in the fourth quarter of the Spurs-Lakers game Monday night, Van Exel and Williams started a fight that spilled into the front row of seats. Van Exel, who also made an obscene gesture, was fined $10,000.

Extractions: Comments "You cant lose your starting two highest-scoring players and replace them with a back-up point guard and three stiffs and expect to field a competitive team." I assume you're talking about Speedy Claxton, because Nick Van Exel is a legitimate starting point guard. Let's be realistic, as a point guard, Van Exel is probably as good or better than Arenas. Granted Van Exel doesn't have the up side that Areanas has, but Van Exel is just as good if not a better scorer than Van Exel and is a better distributor as well. The reality is that this is probably the rarity that is the trade that hurts both teams. I think relatively that the Warriors actually did better than Dallas. They got rid of Fortson (and his albatross contract), Chris Mills (a stiff) and Antawn Jamison's contract (which was more money than his performance ever warranted or ever will). In return they got a good PG and some stiffs who don't make that much money back. While it may not help either team, the Warriors are hurt less by this trade than Dallas.

Extractions: Where HoopHeads Get Their Fix! Main May 28, 2003 There's More To Dallas Than Dirk Mavs new Big Three erupts for 23 fourth quarter points to extend the Nets' break In what will go down as one of the more memorable second half comebacks in NBA playoff history, the Dallas Mavericks, playing without one of the best players in the world and with only nine players in uniform, overcame a deficit that was as high as 17 points in the 3rd quarter, to stave off elimination in San Antonio last night. The series now shifts to Dallas for game six on Thursday night where, based on their play last night, the Mavs have a good shot at extending this series to a seventh game. Of course, Dallas got some help from San Antonio last evening in making sure that there would be a game six. When Dallas began playing the collapsing match-up zone that they call The Freak in the second half, the Spurs reacted as if the object of the game was to pass the ball around the perimeter for 23 seconds rather than to try to score. Spurs game four heroes, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, were scared to shoot in the fourth quarter while Tim Duncan was held in check by the less than formidable interior trio of Walt Williams, Eduardo Najera, and Raef LaFrentz.
