Clyde was exactly who I was thinking about earlier in the CP3 argument talking about a PG who I would much rather have on my team who sacrificed personal #s for the greater good of the team.
The 70s Knicks were the ultimate "team." They selflessly shared the ball all around, with everybody always looking to make the extra pass. Everyone contributed on offense with no parts greater than the whole. And Clyde embodied that. He could have easily put up better personal #s than he did, especially in that era (not that his #s are bad by any means), but it would have meant him having the ball in his hands more, and hurting the entire brand of basketball the Knicks were built on.
But when they needed him to pick it up, watch the **** out. Especially in big moments. He was a legendary big game/big play performer and always cool under pressure. So you could point to CP3's stats (even the made up ones) as to why he is better, but I'll ride with Clyde and his all-time best Game 7 Finals performance + 2 championships any day of the week.
Also had him in mind when I said Glove was one of the 2 best defensive PGs of all time. Clyde could have been the all time steals leader if they tracked that **** in his earlier years.
