Poor Anthony Davis. The Pelicans big man probably thought he could go on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, share a few laughs, charm a national audience, and promote his brand. Little did he know he was about to be out-flanked by the most charming dude in the history of mankind, Walt "Clyde" Frazier.
Davis and Clyde squared off in a Kimmel "Generation Gap" segment, where old and young people are asked questions about each other's generation. Clyde dominated in his own Clydesque way. Pay no attention to the final score: Clyde owned this segment the same way he owned the Lakers in Game 7:
- "He's from my home state of Geor-ger. Jimmy Carter!"
- When asked Jay Z's real last name: "Z!"
- When asked about the term "Netflix and chill": "It has something to do with computers?"
- "I was there, man ... Woodstock!"
How is it possible for a guy to know so little about modern pop culture while simultaneously making modern pop culture seem completely irrelevant? Now I almost feel ashamed I know what "Netflix and chill" means. If Clyde doesn't know it, it isn't cool.
