STAT with the MASTER BLASTER...
"I thought he was hacked and whacked" - Clyde on a foul on Chandler.
I shook Walt Clyde's hand back in 2010, before the Nuggets vs Knicks game when Melo and Gallo went at it.
I had got floor seats in the section behind the visitor's basket, on stub hub, and got there early. He came walking from somewhere behind us and was making his way to the stairs to my left, to get to the court. I stood up and said something like "whoa, it's Walter Clyde" and extended my hand. He shook my hand and said "hey young fella."
The chick that I was with had no idea who he was. Things didn't work out.
I can not stand listening to Clyde any longer. He uses the same 8 adjectives over and over.
Today, while looking for a word or phrase to describe the Knicks defense he paused........... for about 4-5 seconds and then said, (this is word for word)
"The knicks defense with the Teflon D, not sticking to their man"
Are you kidding me?
Are you kidding me?
I can't stand anymore of his dumbass rhymes.
It's honestly like Clyde brings a checklist of words he must use every game
Ohh there were go, got tenacious in there
hmm how about loquacious
and yes.. omnipotent.
Dude tries way too hard
LOL you neg repped me for joking that I should neg rep you which I didn't do? C'mon...
When the Knicks were slumping.. Clyde was the one who made the games somewhat more entertaining to watch..
I seriously have a better time watching the games when he's commentating and the games are on MSG than when its on some other network..
He rhymes two words which are connected by the word "and", and for the most part the second word really doesn't have anything to do with the play it just rhymes.
Maybe you don't understand the "lingo" and how the way he uses some of his words don't really fit into the game of basketball.
I understand he is trying to be poetic, but there is a difference between trying to be poetic and being poetic.
He is trying way too hard.
You're paying attention only to his rhymes. He does a lot more than that on commentary.
