    Even at his age, Clyde could mop the floor with Tracy.

    Dude, he's a hometown guy and won a championship, but his career was best known as a Blazer.

    2 NBA finals, he had hair and he could dunk !

    Clyde kept in shape, I bet he can still do a 360. If Barkley is allowed to play I'd love to see Clyde serve him a facial

    Duh I know he is from Houston, but since I actually watched him his whole career, he will always be a Blazer to me when it comes to the pros. I will never forget his U of H days though!
