Clyde Drexler Intro 2 dunk contest in his hometown Clutch City (Houston) - his legendary college team Houston Cougars - Phi Slamma Jamma\"Clyde the Glide\"\n\n\nDrexler was famed for his speed and finesse on the court, and his easy-going and quiet demeanor off the court. At University of Houston, Drexler became well-known for his exceptional abilities as a finisher, but generally was not considered a great shooter. During his pro career Drexler developed a much more well-rounded game, even becoming an effective post player. His extraordinary leaping abilities allowed him to be an acrobatic dunker. This earned Drexler the nickname \"Clyde the Glide.\"\n\nDrexler was regarded as a versatile player, and he was consistently among the leaders at his position in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. He also posted a considerable number of blocked shots for a player his size, ranking third for his career totals among guards.\n\nHe is one of only three players in NBA history to have posted career totals of at least 20,000 points, 6,000rebounds and 6,000 assists (the two others being Oscar Robertson and John Havlicek). As of 2005, Drexler leads all guards with his career average of offensive rebounds with 2.4 per game.\n\n\nSet a Trail Blazer record in 1989 by dunking on an 11\' 1\" rim\n\n\nDrexler graduated from Houston\'s Ross SterlingHigh School in 1980.\nHe then attended the University ofHouston where, alongside Hakeem Olajuwon and Larry Micheaux, they constituted the \"Phi Slama Jama\" basketball fraternity renowned for its acrobatic, \"above the rim\" style of play. Drexler helped lead the Cougars to consecutive Final Four appearances in 1982 and 1983, losing the 1983 NCAA Final to underdog North Carolina State.Drexler was selected in the 1st round, 14th overall pick in the 1983 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. Along with teammates Terry Porter, Jerome Kersey, Buck Williams, Kevin Duckworth, and Clifford Robinson, Drexler helped lead the team to the NBA Finals in 1990 (against the Detroit Pistons) and 1992 (versus the Chicago Bulls).In 1992 he was selected to the U.S. Olympics basketball team, nicknamed \"The Dream Team\", which won the gold medal in Barcelona. He finished second to Michael Jordan in Most Valuable Player voting in 1991-92. He would meet Jordan\'s Chicago Bulls in the NBA Finals that same season only to fall short, as Jordan and the Bulls went on to win their second consecutive championship.\n\nOn February 14, 1995, with the Blazers out of serious contention for a championship, Portland honored Drexler\'s request to be traded to a contender and sent the Blazer great to the Houston Rockets mid-season, right before the trade deadline. Despite finishing the regular season with a record of 47-35, which placed the Rockets 6th out of 8 playoff teams in the Western Conference, Drexler and long-time friend Hakeem Olajuwon helped propel them to an improbable second consecutive championship in 1995.\n\nDuring the 1995 NBA Playoffs, Drexler was the subject of a controversial ejection during a game between the Rockets and Phoenix Suns by referee Jake O\'Donnell, which allegedly stemmed from a personal feud between the two at the time.. This would turn out to be the last NBA game O\'Donnell would referee, as he was not assigned any further games in the playoffs that year, and eventually retired a few months later. In 1996, on ESPN\'s \"NBA Today\", O\'Donnell commented, \"I wouldn\'t give Clyde Drexler much leeway because of the way he reacted with me all the time. I thought at times he would give cheap shots to people, and I just would not allow it.\"\nDrexler stayed with the Rockets for three more seasons before retiring from the NBA after the 1997-98 season in order to become head men\'s basketball coach at his alma mater, the University of Houston.\nDrexler\'s #22 jersey has been retired by the Cougars, Rockets, and Trail Blazers. He was inducted as a player into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on September 10, 2004, in his first year of eligibility.\nIn 2004 Drexler co-authored his biography, Clyde the Glide, with Portland Tribune sports writer Kerry Eggers, and University of Houston classmate and CBS Sports broadcaster Jim Nantz providing the \"foreword\".\n\n25 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, 10 steals\n\n1 assist shy of a quadruple double\n\n\nBDP/F23 \n.Boogie Down Productions.
