Walt Frazier

The co-pilot on a couple Championship teams, a cool cat, and one of the better defensive point guards to lace em up. Despite never winning the MVP or Finals MVP, and openly admitting Willis Reed was the leader of the Knicks Clyde finds himself higher on the list. A true testament to the charismatic nature of Mr. Frazier.

While Frazier didn’t have the career totals of some of the point guards listed before him, he had the winning pedigree and the all around play style that fits the ‘traditional’ point guard notion.

The Resume:

7x All-Star

6x All-NBA

7x All-NBA Defense

All-Star MVP

2X Champion
