    Wow! Maybe this can be used to fire Clyde and hire Calvin.

    And people were wondering why Clyde didn't get more quotes/interviews in the Dream Team documentary...because they most likely got edited out.

    So I guess Clyde didn't realize Magic agreed to be on the team before he found out he had HIV? I believe he was the first player to commit.

    Clyde Drexler - sour grapes much?

    http://deadspin.com/5921227/

    He might be right about Magic and the All-star game MVP, but wow... hard to believe he'd be so bitter about it.
    And supposedly in this Dream Team book he also claims:
    Sigh. Guess we'll have to call this another Drexlerism.

    Some things are better left unsaid, even if true. Drexler isn't the brightest guy.

    Stern made the final decision to include Magic in the game, but the fans voted him to be at the game. It's not like Stern felt sorry for him and said "aw, let's put the scrub in". Along with the Rockets Finals, that All-Star game was one of my favorite moments in watching sports.

    As for his inclusion into the Olympics, hell yes, he deserved it. Magic and Bird, along with Stern, created the modern-day NBA and kickstarted it.

    When I heard him on the NBA Today podcast proclaiming Kobe to still be better than LeBron and Durant, I just had to laugh and shake my head.

    Clyde is just... Clyde.
