The "we didn't pick Jordan because we had Clyde" doesn't even make sense in the context of the time. We drafted Clyde when we already had an all-star playing the 2, Jim Paxson. He was second-team all-NBA in 1984. We could have kept him, played Clyde at the 3 and brought Kersey off the bench. We had no issues trading Paxson a couple of years later; Paxson was the Blazers' all-time leading scorer at the time. We traded him for Jerry Sichting.
