About the book
For millions of basketball fans in the 1970s, Walt Frazier, nicknamed Clyde, defined the word cool. One of the greatest point guards in NBA history, Clyde guided the New York Knicks to their only two championships with a style and flair that was wholly his own. Worshipped for both his skills on the court and his flamboyant fashion sense off it, he was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1987, was named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players in 1996, and is currently the Knicks’ color analyst on the MSG Network.
