Walt “Clyde” Frazier, the prevalent protective watch of his period, composed his ticket to the Hall of Fame when he drove the New York Knickerbockers to a couple of titles in the mid 1970s. Frazier holds the Knicks’ vocation record for helps, and he was the main scorer in establishment history until Patrick Ewing passed him in 1993-94.
The most seasoned of nine kids, Frazier figured out how to keep a level head at an early age. His quiet aura served him well on the basketball court, where his simple, confident style was frequently mixed up for apathy. He was an extraordinary grip shooter. At the point when the ball was in Frazier’s grasp, something great normally happened. He ran the show. “It’s Clyde’s ball,” teammate Willis Reed once said. “He gives whatever remains of us a chance to play with it here and there.”
On resistance, Frazier stole the ball with exemption. It was said that he was so fast, he could appropriate the hubcaps off a moving auto. One adversary depicted his hands as “speedier than a reptile’s tongue.” Perhaps the main thing that shielded him from driving the alliance in takes is that the measurement wasn’t continued amid the principal half of his vocation.
Frazier was one of New York City’s most well known and obvious identities. Given to snazzy overabundances, he claimed a Rolls Royce, a pink Eldorado called “the Clydemobile,” a rich lone ranger cushion on Manhattan’s East Side, and a closet of the most recent styles. His muttonchop sideburns were best in class. He was nicknamed Clyde after famous bank criminal Clyde Barrow. Dressing like a 1930s hoodlum, Frazier wore wide-overflowed caps and fur garments. Esquire magazine included him on its cover as one of “The 10 Best-Dressed Jocks.”
A champion in two games at David Howard High School in Atlanta, Frazier (conceived March 29, 1945) diverted down football grant offers from the University of Kansas and Indiana University to go to Southern Illinois University on a ball grant. He excelled as a sophomore at SIU, averaging 17.1 focuses and 9.2 bounce back per amusement, yet horrible scores cost him his qualification for the 1965-66 season. He was permitted to hone with the group, however just on safeguard. The following season, he arrived at the midpoint of 18.2 focuses a diversion and drove the Salukis to the title of the lofty National Invitation Tournament at Madison Square Garden.
At the point when Frazier joined the Knicks as a first-round draft decision in 1967, they had not won a title in their 21 years in the NBA. The Knicks had skilled players, for example, Reed and Walt Bellamy, however they required a pioneer. Frazier filled that part splendidly. In his second season, 1968-69, he set an establishment record for helps. As he developed as a player, the Knicks developed as a group, at last catching the title in 1970.
After the 1976-77 season, in which his scoring normal dropped to 17.4, Frazier was sent to the Cleveland Cavaliers as pay with the expectation of complimentary operator Jim Cleamons. Clyde resigned in 1979. Notwithstanding averaging 18.9 focuses and 6.1 helps amid his 13-year profession, he had made the NBA All-Defensive Team seven back to back seasons starting in 1969. No other monitor can make that claim. Frazier was accepted into the Hall of Fame in 1987, joining four partners from the 1973 title group: Reed, Jerry Lucas, Bill Bradley, and Dave DeBusschere.

Ball Handling – A Brief Outlook
The difference between dribbling and ball handling is intent. Dribbling is the skill of controlling the ball as you bounce it to the floor. Ball handling (at least 1 aspect of ball handling) is what you do with that dribble.
Whether you use it to go to the basket, make a passing angle, escape from pressure or anything else, those situations have to be imagined and practiced.
Here are some situational drills:
- Full Court Lay-ups – Start on the baseline. Dribble full court with right hand in 5 dribbles and make a lay-up, come back with left hand. Then reduce the number of dribbles to 4 and then to 3.
- Chair Changes – Place a chair about 21 feet from the basket. It can be on top, on the wing, or in the corner. Start about 8-10 feet beyond the chair. Dribble straight at the chair. At the chair, use a change of direction dribble (crossover, inside out, behind back, etc) to go beyond the chair and make a lay-up. Try to get to the point where you only need one dribble to get to the lay-up. Practice all the changes.
- Two up – Two back – Set a chair such as in the drill above. Take 2 hard dribbles at the chair. When reaching the chair, take 2 backup dribbles. After the second dribble, push ahead into 1 dribble lay-up or pull-up jumpshot.
- Dropstep Dribble – (works on footwork and ballhanding)
- Chair Curl – This is another great multi use drill. It combines shooting, ball handling and speed and high intensity change in direction.
- Chair Curl Phase 2 (With 2 Chairs)
- Two Ball Dribbling Drills & Moves – Excellent way to improve one on one moves.
- Basketball Pick and Roll Drills
Shooting drills can also be adapted to work on ball handling aspects by adding changes of direction and pivoting to create 1 and 2 dribble opportunities for either jumpers or lay-ups.
Once you have developed a feel for the ball, it’s very important that you practice your ball handling in competitive, game-like situations with defenders present. In the DVD 30 Competitive Skill Development Drills, you will find 12 drills that are specific to improving your ball handling skills in game-like situations.
Argument with Hornacek Led to Noah’s Leave From Knicks
