The King of Style

Richard Sandomir talks to Clyde about…style.

Personally, I think Clyde's the man but when it comes to style, I can't help thinking about Mark Jackson's unfortunate choice of words.

[2] I found it:

"Be secure in yourself. First of all, allow your partner to make the statement. But I never wanted to be the second coming of Clyde Frazier. Because I didn't want to look like a pimp..."

There's obviously more to it than that, but that was an actual quote in the Daily News by way of the Post...

[3] Clyde's reaction (same article):

"What he said doesn't bother me. Mark saying I looked like a pimp, and he didn't want to look like me, is a vicious statement," Frazier said. "But that has nothing to do with my comparing him to me as a player. Now he's talking about off-the-court shenanigans? I was reflecting on his playing, not his style off the court. I don't know why he would make a statement like that."

Clyde vs. Mark Jackson at their primes is no contest, Clyde would eviscerate and masticate him alive with a Drano chaser...

[4] Plus, the rings, baby.

I believe Clyde when he says Jackson's crap doesn't bother him. Gnats don't bother Olympians.
