Wear Rip City: Retro Glide

By caseyholdahl Posted in: Blazers, Magic, wearripcity

Mitchell & Ness recently released a "new" retro Clyde Drexler jersey, and to celebrate, the folks over at Slam Magazine have a shortish Q&A with "The Glide." Some of the more interesting excerpts ...
SLAM: Mitchell & Ness recently released the throwback Blazers jersey you wore during your rookie season. What’s that mean to you?

CD: First of all, I think it’s a tremendous honor. Mitchell & Ness does a great job when they come out with the authentic jerseys and I’m honored to be a part of their latest promotion. And it’s quite an honor to my days as a Trail Blazer, which I loved.

SLAM: How long was it before Portland fans started wearing your jersey?

CD: It took a while because I held out of camp my rookie year and missed a lot of the plays and formation of the team Jack Ramsey put together. I was averaging like 10 minutes a game until the All-Star break. So I only got 10 minutes. No more, no less. Coach Ramsey said until you learn to play young man, you will not be effective in my system.

SLAM: What did you think about those short shorts you had to wear when you played?

CD: I loved the short shorts. We could actually run and do stuff in them. We didn’t have to pull them down and pull them back up all the time. I never had a problem with my shorts.
Could Clyde's endorsement convince Mitchell & Ness to do a short shorts retro release? With the popularity of retro sneakers, it might be a product line worth resurrecting.
