NBA Player

Norm Nixon was born and raised in Macon, Georgia where he played both basketball and football at Southwest High School.

Named to the 1978 NBA All-Rookie team, Nixon was a member of two NBA championship teams as a Laker, in 1980 and ’82, before being traded to the Clippers, then located in San Diego.
