Superfly: 15 Style Icons of the 1970s

6. Walt Frazier

While we may laud the stylish gains of current NBA stars, none of them even come close to the level Walt Frazier was on at the time of his NBA supremacy in the 1970s. When he wasn't leading the Knicks to their only two championships in 1970 and 1973, the seven-time all-star was also one of the city's most fashionable members.

Frazier was even given the nickname "Clyde" because of hats he wore that were similar to ones Warren Beatty wore as the stylish outlaw Clyde Barrow in the film Bonnie & Clyde. Frazier dominated the game from the backcourt, but it was his hats, furs, bellbottoms, and fashion-forward looks that allowed him to dominate the sport's style.
