Stop The Violence: Former NBA-er Nick Van Exel’s Son Confesses To Cold-Blooded Christmas Murking

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Arrests, Ballers, Hide Ya Kids

His daddy was a NBA sharp-shooter, and he’s just a shooter, the apple fell REAL far from his tree…

Nickey Van Exel, son of former Dallas Mavericks player Nick Van Exel, was arrested Wednesday night in connection with a recent murder.

Bradley Bassey Eyo was found shot to death near Lake Ray Hubbard the day after Christmas. Investigators determined he was murdered at a Garland home in the 6900 block of George Brown Drive and his body later dumped at the lake, less than a mile away.

Police said 20-year-old Nickey Van Exel turned himself in Wednesday and confessed to the crime. He’s a neighbor of the victim.

He is being held at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center on $1 million bond.

The senior Van Exel played for the Mavericks from 2001-2003. He finished his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs in 2006.

Lotta confessing goin on lately, hope these cats get the redemption their looking for because where they’re going they will certainly need it.

    Whenever someone turns themselves in SHORTLY after a heinous crime, that person is ACTUALLY a decent human being, whose conscience killed them, thus turning themselves in. He obviously got into something that went bad. Dumping the body was his fear, but his conscience made him fess up. RIP to the victim. And I really hope this young man gets some type of help while in prison. But who am I kidding.

    Damn, I remember Van Exel. He use to play for the Lakers, before they traded him for a draft pick to acquire Kobe. He was (at one time their best point shooter.

    • 2010haterz

      Van Exel wasn’t traded to get Kobe Divac was. Van Exel actually played with Shaq and Kobe but didn’t win one of those Championships

  • Friend of Bradley

    According to reports, this dude said the shotgun they were both playing with accidentally went off – killing the victim…

    They were both best friends – it’s just said on so many level… A mistake has taken a friend’s life, and the other friend is looking at a death sentence…
