Knicks Legend Walt Frazier Might Be The Most Dapper Man In Basketball

The NBA All Star scores major three-pointers for style.

He helped lead the Knicks two championships — in 1970 and 1973. It was the last time the Knicks ever won a championship, actually.

Here he is with his fellow starting players, Dick Barnett, Bill Bradley, Dave DeBusschere, and Willis Reed.


Frazier got into clothes as a way to let off steam.


"As a rookie I wasn't playing up to expectation, so to pacify myself I used to always go shopping," he said. "Then I'd come back to my room and look in the mirror and say, 'Well, I'm not playing good but I still look good.'"


"I never realized I was setting the bar for what would follow," said Frazier. "If I could do it again, I would relish the moments more, because you never know when you're gonna get another one."

You can watch the whole story of Frazier and the Knicks in ESPN's excellent 30 for 30 doc, When the Garden Was Eden.
