Clyde Drexler Net Worth: Clyde Drexler is an American (retired) professional basketball swingman who has a net worth of $25 million. Clyde Austin Drexler (aka The Glide) was born June 22, 1962 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Throughout his career, he was a ten-time All-Star and named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Drexler won an Olympic gold medal in 1992 as part of the 1992 United States men's Olympic basketball team (The Dream Team) and an NBA Championship in 1995 with the Houston Rockets. He is a two-time Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee (inducted in 2004 for his individual career and again in 2010 as a member of the Dream Team) Drexler currently serves as color commentator for Rockets home games. During his educational years, Drexler majored in finance and worked at a bank during the summer. In 1993, Drexler was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers, where his second season turned out to be his 'breakout season'. During the 1991–92 season, he made the All-NBA First Team and finished second to Michael Jordan in MVP voting. On February 14, 1995, with the Blazers out of serious contention for a championship, Portland honored Drexler's request to be traded to a contender and sent Drexler back home to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Otis Thorpe in mid-season, just before the trade deadline. Head Coach of the University of Houston, Guy Lewis, recalled in 2003 that he initially received hate mail from Houston supporters and alumni for recruiting Drexler, as they felt that he was not good enough to play for the school.
