After turning heads as a star at Southern Illinois University, WALT CLYDE FRAZIER stepped up to the biggest stage in professional sports, landing in The Big Apple as a first-round draft pick of the New York Knicks. Frazier was a steady and sometimes phenomenal offensive force, but his true hallmarks were running New York's offense (he led the team in assists in each of his seasons as a Knick) while shutting down the opponent's offense (Frazier was selected to the NBA's All-Defensive First Team seven straight years). When an injured Willis Reed limped onto the court in the 1973 NBA Finals, it galvanized his team -- but it was Frazier's unbeleivable performance (36 points, 19 assists and 7 rebounds) that sealed the 102-93 victory and his second NBA Championship. Frazier wrapped up his career with three seasons in Cleveland, and was named to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1987.
