    Nice find tinman!

    I only heard two definite players, Wilt Chamberlain/Bill Russell, and then he goes off on a lot of players he thinks might also deserve to be up there, including himself (a little delusional). I especially liked when he said that he and any two of the players he mentioned would not only beat Lebron/Durant/Kobe, but that they would light them up..:eek:.

    On a side note, Yao looks COLOSSAL next to Drexler! A lot of fond memories were siting next to each other!!!

    I find it interesting how Clyde always downplays the sheer dominance of Michael Jordan in his era. He rattled off several players in answer to his questions before mentioning Jordan.

    No offense to Harden, but come on. Drexler takes off from farther away and at an angle yet there is no doubt the slam is going through. Harden's dunk was awesome but the ball hit the front rim and he had to cram it home after the bounce on the rim.

    You should have shown Clyde's dunk and then Harden's dunk and titled the latter "Drexler like!". Now, if you showed Clyde making a three and referred to it as Harden like!, that would be OK, but in dunks, not so much.

    Nothing but net! Clyde's a consummate professional! He brings it each and every night! He was a seasoned veteran! He brought a lot of tangibles to the table! He could be a starter for most NBA franchises!...:grin:
