    Via SLAM-
    Clyde Drexler wore his “cool” the same way a pimp wears a fur coat.

    Effortlessly.

    Drexler’s nickname was related to the way he moved in the air, but it also described his every movement on the court. Not even his decision to sport George Jefferson’s hairline and John Stockton’s shorts could dampen Clyde’s glide.

    The man just played smooth.

    But, it wasn’t all style, Drexler had substance too. Throughout the early and mid-’90s Drexler was good for 20 ppg, 6+ rebounds and 5 assists. Even without the world’s greatest handle, Drexler lived in the lane, and was a terror on the wing. Clyde’s Portland squads were legit contenders in the West, and even though he couldn’t match up to Mike in the Finals, who could?

    Drexler was confident, but never arrogant. He was willing to take a backseat to The Dream to get his only championship ring, and was clutch for that Houston team. Whether it was ramming home a one-handed tomahawk or shooting that jumper with the high leg kick, Clyde’s game was a thing of refined beauty.

    Smoother than ice.

    The shorts. The hairline. All so true. Looking back on games now, Clyde definitely didn't look the way he played. But it was the way he played that made him my fv athlete ever. The breakaway dunks, the glides through traffic, and the all-around teammate he was will not be soon forgotten.

    I would love to have been able to watch basketball in the good ol' days. Not now how's it's mostly about ego it seems.

    Nice list, takes me back to when I was a kid when I would watch playoff games and I would get so pumped to play i'd be out in the driveway after the game.

    I like Rich in the 3 spot, but it could of easily be Miller, used to love to hate that guy.

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
