Walt Frazier: “I was traded to Cleveland. It was like getting traded to Siberia”

NBA legend Walt Frazier remembered the time when he got traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1977 after ten years with the New York Knicks.

Frazier said, per Darren Rovell:

“I was traded to Cleveland. It was like getting traded to Siberia. There was one reporter. On the weekend, there was no reporter.”

Frazier won two NBA titles with the Knicks – in 1970 and 1973. He was also a 7-time NBA All-Star. In 1987 he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The 74-year-old is currently a color commentator for telecasts of Knicks games on the MSG Network.
