If you were to ask me about Clyde Drexler, all I would say is “ain’t that the dude who always thought he was as good as Jordan?” Nothing more, nothing less. In fact Clyde is probably nothing more than a footnote to the late 80′s early 90′s NBA basketball. Anywho he took it upon his self to talk about how the everyone “pitied” Magic Johnson once they found out he had the HIV virus, and that is the only reason he was on The Dream Team.
“Magic was always…” And Drexler goes into a decent Magic impression: “‘Come on, Clyde, come on, Clyde, get with me, get with me,’ and making all that noise. And, really, he couldn’t play much by that time. He couldn’t guard his shadow.”
“But you have to understand what was going on then. Everybody kept waiting for Magic to die. Every time he’d run up the court everybody would feel sorry for the guy, and he’d get all that benefit of the doubt. Magic came across like, ‘All this is my stuff.’ Really? Get outta here, dude. He was on the declining end of his career.”
Drexler had played exquisitely in the 1992 All-Star Game in Orlando, although the MVP award eventually went to Magic, who had been added by Commissioner Stern as a special thirteenth player to the Western Conference roster. “If we all knew Magic was going to live this long, I would’ve gotten the MVP of that game, and Magic probably wouldn’t have made the Olympic team.”
Like for real Clyde? Tell us how you really feel!!! Some dudes stay biter don’t they.
