Calkins: Blazers G Clyde Drexler, 49, Can Still Dunk

Matt Calkins of The Columbian conducted an interview with Portland Trail Blazers legend Clyde Drexler. A few highlights... ------------------------- "I dunked last week. I'm 49 and can do almost everything I used to do. I can still jump high, but I got a few kinks. For instance, I can still run fast, but I don't have the brakes to stop." Col: Who was the toughest player you ever had to guard? CD: "For me -- Rolando Blackman. He gave me fits. He had a quick first step, and when he went by you and pulled up for that jumper, he'd hit it every time. When he was in his prime, he was unguardable. The only reason you got a break was because he didn't take 35 shots a game." ------------------------- Drexler also said that the Blazers needed Hakeem Olajuwon, not Michael Jordan, in the 1984 NBA Draft. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
