Default Sam Bowie lied to be drafted ahead of Michael Jordan in 1984

If what I did was lying and what I did was wrong, at the end of the day, when you have loved ones that have some needs, I did what any of us would have done."

Yeah he should have told him his knee is ruined and got a crappier contract to begin his career, but seriously good on him I would have done the same anyone else would have done the same unfortunatly for Portland it kinda hurt them but as the article explains they already had a All Star SF and a great SG in Clyde so they needed a big.

Portland had Drexler already. They weren't interested in drafting Jordan amyway.

Portland is easily one of the best cities in the country, but man, the basketball gods really seem to despise it.

From a couple of the articles I've read, it seems as though the Blazers has consistently had the worst medical & training staffs in the league for some years. One of the articles was written by a 3-D imaging training specialist who told them if Greg didn't have 1-on-1 rehab work for over a year to fix the instability caused by his initial knee damage, the opposite leg would be incredibly prone to injury.

What they do? Rush Greg back. What happened? He destroyed his other leg.
