High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 21, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Clyde leaves Rolls at Home takes bus to work new York a Walt Frazier shelled out $20,000 for his 1965 Rolls Royce but his transportation to work Only sets him Back 35 cents. Like millions of new yorkers Frazier the new York a Nicks superstar guard rides the subway. But like very few. He leaves a Rolls Royce in his garage. The logic is simple. During the National basketball association playoffs when Frazier tries to drive the Lane and finds heavy traffic inside he counters with his soft jumper similarly when Frazier finds the traffic in Midtown Manhattan unbearable. He hops a subway. Quot i can t stand the hassle of bucking the traffic. It tires me out Quot says Frazier. A and sometimes the kids at Madison Square Garden can get a Little Frisky with my then Frazier who admits to earning about $250,000 a year adds a you just can t beat the so before Knick Home games Frazier gives his Driver the night off grabs his Token and Heads for the e train. A they chump you better win tonight a a curly haired kid shouts to Frazier As he leaves his apartment. Frazier nicknamed a a Clyde for the Clyde Barrow style clothes he wears just smiles. The kid s sidekick Shyer and less forceful asks for Frazier s autograph. Realizing he has no paper the boy extends his hand for Frazier to autograph. A no hands. No hands Man a says Frazier. A i get a lot of attention from my Frazier says. A live had it both ways but i like this More. I dig the adulation Quot apparently. Frazier is dressed in what he describes As his a gangster Quot garb a Black three piece suit Black shirt with a red a a Clyde stitched into each sleeve White tie and Black boots. Topping it All off is a Black Broad brimmed hat. All that a missing is a machine gun in a violin Case. Even those who Don t know a basketball from a Cantalope notice him. A Karen t you Wilt Chamberlain a asks a grizzly old truck Driver leaning out his window. Again Frazier who has recently collaborated on a Book about basketball and being Cool smiles and says nothing. A Guys Call me Joe Frazier a lot but i Haven t been called a Wilt chamberlains in a Long a r i Frazier is 6-foot-4, Chamberlain is 7-2 and Joe Frazier is a Boxer. After a leisurely walk to the station. Frazier slowly strides Down the Steps. In the darkened subway Tunnel there a less recognition. A anything goes Here a Frazier says. A a in a noticed much less. It seems people Are too angry to notice me. They just go about with their frowns Heads buried in their paper or staring into but a police officer visibly excited does notice Frazier. Quot hey Man you Gonna win tonight a the officer asks. Frazier nods affirmatively. A can i have your autograph a the Man asks. A a you re not ordering me a Frazier shoots Back with a laugh then pencils his name with Broad strokes on an unused parking ticket.
