In 1967, Walt "Clyde" Frazier was selected fifth overall and didn't disappoint. He had an outstanding career after being voted to the NBA All-Rookie Team, but even better, he made it to seven All-Star games in just 13 seasons.
Clyde not only was selected to many All-Star games, but he was a part of the Knicks 1970 and 1973 championship victories. He was also named to the All-NBA First Team four times, the All-NBA Second Team twice and the All-Defensive First Team seven times.
In his career, Frazier averaged 19 points per game and six assists per game. He was also a stealing machine and a fantastic defender.
In 1979, for his fantastic years at the Garden with the Knicks, he was honored to have his jersey retired (No. 10) by the Knicks.
Later in 1987, Frazier was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame for his outstanding play on both ends of the court. In addition, in 1996, Frazier was also elected to the 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.
Although Frazier played his final years in Cleveland, his career with the Knicks wasn't over just yet.
In 1997, Frazier decided to do some broadcasting and is now the color commentator alongside Mike Breen or Kenny Albert on the MSG Network.
Frazier puts together many phrases during games like "dishing and swishing," "duping and hooping," "posting and toasting," "stopping and popping," "winning and grinning," "using and abusing," "shaking and baking," "bounding and astounding" and they never get old.
He is also known for his different suits or shoes every night. He wears the most craziest combinations you'll ever see.
Walt "Clyde" Frazier is a legend. It's plain and simple.
