Norman Ellard Nixon (born October 11, 1955 in Macon, Georgia) is a former professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association, who spent ten seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Diego/Los Angeles Clippers.
He was the 22nd overall pick in the 1978 NBA Draft by the Lakers out of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He helped the Lakers to win NBA world championships in 1980 and 1982 before he was traded to the Clippers before the 1983-84 season in exchange for the draft rights to guard Byron Scott.
After six successful years with the Lakers, his years with the Clippers were not as successful. He spent the last years of his career on the injured list, spending more than two full seasons on the injured list before retiring for good at the end of the 1988-89 season. During his career, Nixon scored 12,065 points (15.7 points per game) and had 6,386 assists (8.3 APG) in 768 games played.
In his retirement years, Nixon concentrated on several business ventures, and served one season doing radio commentary for the Clippers (2004-05), as well as currently doing analyst work for KABC-TV's postgame coverage of ABC's NBA telecasts.
He is married to actress/producer/director/dancer Debbie Allen.
