Great book by a classy basketball legend. Only mildly dated, and who cares-- I wanted it to relive those times, among other things!

Clyde is cool, alright. A wonderful read on a variety of topics! And a beautiful, high-quality volume (as to the paper, photos, binding, dust cover, etc. on this ~2010 version).

Recommended highly.

I feel lucky to have gotten into watching the Knicks in the magical '69 season as I turned 9. Clyde was the defensive force that I watched so carefully that i learned the "quick snatch steal the ball" move.

When he scored 36 with 19 assists in the 7th game, they gave MVP to Willis
Reed after he scored 4 points after missing the game before. I was outraged. Nuff said, so was he. Clyde took over when they needed him to, and he snatched that championship in the 1st quarter, and the Lakers never made a move, staying back 15 or more for the whole game.

He brought out the Puma Clydes (sneakers, the 1st expensive ones) then, in the early 70's, and by the time I became a freshman at Brooklyn Tech in '74 (right after they won a 2nd championship after losing the year before to the Lakers team that still has a record for consecutive wins that year). 9 out of 10 cool guys wore them, blue suede shoes Elvis would have loved. They replace Pro Keds and another usual, and in NY, you wore these sneakers, about $25 when the lesser ones that always satisfied you were only 10-12 bucks.

Ahhhh, Clyde, still the magician. Back in '97 I had a cool black friend down the hall who informed me that you can watch the Knicks, kill the tv voice, and there was Clyde on the radio for each game. And he was divine, making definitive description phrasing that rhymed perfectly each time. They moved him up and made him the Knicks television host - play-by-play has never been as amusing, theatrical and downright on the money when someone slacks off - Knick or opposing player.

When the Knicks sent him to Cleveland, I died inside, and didnt watch basketball again until Jordan finally had a team. I took off 10 years, knowing there's never gonna be another Clyde.

Oh, yeah, the book. I was lucky enough to be able to borrow it froma friend who'd grabbed it from our Brooklyn library.
He had a lot to say, and let us know his style on all, 'cause he had it! Color photos show what he spent his salary on, the best car in the world and many suits, some outlandish, some dazzling, some just look great on his physique because of his build.

Clyde was the best and biggest sports star in NY, Tom Seaver and Joe Willie took the backseat to Clyde and they knew it.

The money they get now when they play careers without ever playing D like Clyde did each night.

With Ewing, they had a great team for him to talk about. Lets hope this team lives up to their start, 'cause they might allow me to hear Clyde each night, and there's nothing like that!

I had to buy it again. I still think of Clyde whenever I play, or watch the game. HE WAS BASKETBALL TO ME!
