The Splendiferousness of Walt Frazier

30 for 30 Shorts: ‘Disdain the Mundane’

Our latest film, from celebrated author and filmmaker Nelson George

The latest film is Disdain the Mundane, from Nelson George profiling Hall of Famer Walt Frazier. One of the most illustrious players in the history of the New York Knickerbockers, Frazier has emerged in the 21st century as a Big Apple style icon. In the ’70s he was “Clyde,” a cool-as-ice point guard with big hats and muttonchop sideburns. Today, in his role as Knicks broadcaster, Frazier boasts a wardrobe (featuring vibrant colors and shocking patterns) and rhyming couplets that Jay-Z envies. We’ll talk with the man at his Manhattan restaurant, Clyde Frazier’s Wine and Dine, and explore the evolution of his style.
