Whether watching from a courtside seat or from the luxury of a living room couch, sports fans want to know exactly what's going on in between those two hoops-from what the players are thinking, to why fouls are called, to anticipating what the players are going to do before they actually do it. And there is no better man to explain the ins and outs of America's hottest sport than the Knicks' former star guard, Walt Frazier. In his inimitable voice and style, "Clyde" turns it on as he describes the basics basketball in simple terms anyone can understand, and clues readers into what makes stars such as Michael Jordan so invincible. Includes exciting action photos and a wealth of "Clyde's Chalk Talk," "Clyde's Record Book," and "Clyde's Tips" sidebars.
