Duhon is okay don't get me wrong, he plays defense and knowd how to pass the ball.
The Knicks haven't had a point guard like Clyde since.
He's been often immitated, but never duplicated.
If you get a chance, go to the Knicks website and look up all time Knicks records and check out Clyde's numbers as a Knick, you'll be impressed.

The Knicks drafted Clyde in 1967, he played 10 years for the Knicks before they traded him to Cleveland in 1977.
He played 2 seasons for Cleveland, retiring in 1979.

Too bad you never got to see Clyde play, he was one of the best to play the point guard position in the NBA.
I even have his jersey.
He was the best point guard the Knicks ever had.
In the famous "game 7" against Wilt and the Lakers, everyone always remembers Willis coming out to play with his banged up knee. It was inspirational, but Clydes 36 points and, what was it, 20(?) assists didn't exactly hurt! A ferocious defender, maybe the best in his time. Certainly IN THE CONVERSATION. He was my favorite NBA player as a kid, the guy we all wanted to "be" when playing with our friends. It was definitely a different era, but I believe the truly great ones would make it in any era. I think Clyfe fits that bill.

He never coached, nor ever expressed an interest in coaching.
On his style of dress; Clyde was always different from the rest as far as his sense of fashion.
That's where he got the name "Clyde" from, back in the late sixties, there was this movie out at the time called "Bonnie and Clyde" it was a true story abou a team of bank robbers.
Clyde wore suits and cool hats to go with them, Once on a road trip, Frazier bought a hat that resembled the one worn by the Clyde character in the movie, he walked into the dressing room wearing it and one of his team mates called him Clyde and the name stuck with him ever since.
He always had a sense of style, his own that is.
I mean there are some things he wear that I wouldn't want to get caught dead wearing, and on the other hand, there are some suits he wears that I would wear.
Each person has their own sense of style and fashion as well as things they wouldn't wear that might be okay for someone else.
Yeah, Clyde's threads can be loud.

I agree and Clde would be one of them.
As a youngster, he also was one of my favorites as well as Earl Monroe, who was the most imitated on the playgrounds where I grew up in Brooklyn.
Another great from that era who could play in today's NBA is Pete Maravich, what a shooter, ball handler and passer he was at 6'5"
He would run rings around many of today's guards who don't play much defense anyway.

Guys who balled in the school yards back in the day as well as the summer leagues where guys got to play against NBA players each summer.
That was a fun time.
You don't see much of that anymore, the players make more money now than in the 70's and 80's and some teams won't let their players participate because they might get injured.

Pistol was the man, I remember that game back in February of '77 in the New Orleans Superdome when he got 68 points against the Knicks before fouling out. Guess who was guarding him most of the game?

He's about 60 years old, so yes he's going to dye his hair to keep the gray from showing and he wants to look his best when he's on T.V.
Some guys are afraid of going bald or turning gray, so they do whatever they can to hide it.
Some of them look silly and would be better off shaving their heads.

Actually Clyde was wearing the brims (hats to you) wore the clothes BEFORE the movie came out. He was not a kid wearing what he saw in a movie. IN the 70's a lot of us thought loud colors, shirts with wide lapels (heck even bell bottom pants) were cool....and you know you had at least ONE of those polyester leisure suits, probably ski blue or white!! Remember if a cigarette dropped on it, it would melt instead of burn... and we won't even deal with the platform shoes.. come on admit it... there were thousands out there trying to be like Travolta in Saturday Night Fever

If you remember, the fashions from the 70's were tacky, wierd stuff I never wore except for bell bottoms, which everyone wore.
Platform shoes?
Never, I was already over 6 feet didn't need them and never wore them, they were ugly and funny looking, flats for me just like now.
Some of the hats were cool I do admit, but leisure suits? UGH!!! The height of tacky fashion of that era. Polyester was and still is tacky, I had one polyester suit that I believe I wore a total of 3 times during those years, the rest were wool. I was a young man then and basically followed my own lead when it came to dress. Better to stand out than look like the next person.
The 70's were something else, the best thing to come out of the 70's was the music.
