The Glide

This picture of Clyde Drexler at the 1987 Slam Dunk Contest nearly takes my breath away — the lighting, those 80s Blazers unis, the form, the sideline gaze, those kicks. Holy whoa.

From the beginning, Clyde Drexler had a distinctive aura and a regal presence about him. He was so natural that he made everything on the court look easy. He showed up with plenty of game, but it was of a different kind: smooth, sublime, and seductive — like jazz set into motion, with faint echoes of Connie Hawkins, Elgin Baylor, and Julius Erving.

— Jim Nantz, who coined the nickname Clyde “The Glide” Drexler
