HoopsCritic Hot 50 – #39 Clyde Drexler

Clyde Drexler

Clyde the Glide was a force to be reckoned with in Portland, but it was after paying his dues for the black and red that he found real success with the red and yellow. Along side Hakeem Olajuwon Drexler watched his dreams come true. That being said Drexler was in Portland long enough to still sit as their all time leader in games, minutes, points, and steals. Though he lined up at the shooting guard position Drexler contributed all over, he is also the Blazers second all time leader in both rebounds and assists.

Drexler is  one of the best to ever line up at the shooting guard position and he would have a whole lot more NBA first team honors had he not played in the Jordan era.
