Walt Frazier Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Walt Frazier booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Basketball great, Walt Frazier, was born on March 29, 1945, in Atlanta, Georgia. Frazier is a retired NBA basketball star.

Walt Frazier is currently a spokesman for Just for Men hair products and a commentator for telecasts of New York Knicks games. Denzel Washington's character in the Inside Man was named after him and Keith Hernandez.

Walt Frazier was selected by the New York Knicks with the 5th pick in the 1967 NBA Draft and played for them during which time he picked up the nickname "Clyde" because he wore a similar hat to Warren Beatty who played Clyde Barrow in the 1967 movie Bonnie and Clyde.

Frazier was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1968. He was an NBA All-Star seven times (and was named MVP of the 1975 NBA All-Star Game), was named to the All-NBA First Team four times, the All-NBA Second Team twice, and the All-Defensive First Team seven times. With Frazier, the Knicks captured the NBA championships in 1970 and 1973. Frazier ended his career as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Frazier held Knicks franchise records for most games (759), minutes played (28,995), field goals attempted (11,669), field goals made (5,736), free throws attempted (4,017), free throws made (3,145), assists (4,791) and points (14,617). Center Patrick Ewing would eventually break most of those records, but Frazier's assists record still stands.

Walt Frazier was also one of the first players to make stealing the ball an art form. He would make sudden steals and surprise the offense. When asked about his defensive success, he answered that he did not believe in contact defense. Instead, he defended in such a manner that it appeared he was not playing defense. When he did so, the offensive player was often tricked into letting his guard down whereby Frazier would steal the ball with his quick hands.

Walt Frazier's #10 jersey was retired by the New York Knicks on December 15, 1979. In 1987, Walt Frazier was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame along with Pete Maravich and Rick Barry. In 1996, he was elected to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.

Frazier currently works as a commentator alongside Mike Breen for MSG Network telecasts of Knicks games. He also worked with Breen previously on the radio broadcasts before his switch to television in 1997, and also worked on Knicks games with Marv Albert.
