    I am really upset that Blazers did a lot of wrong moves in the 80s and 90s basketball, but this lineup im sure would have brought Portland home for a championship

    PG - Terry Porter
    SG - Michael Jordan
    SF - Clyde Drexler
    PF - Buck Williams
    C - Arvydas Sabonis

    Scratch Williams and Porter from that lineup and they would still have won at least a title. That's how could you guys could have become.

    I believe we traded Bowie for Buck so that wouldn't have happened if we drafted Jordan.

    Yeah, we would have traded Jordan for Buck, obviously.

    Rockets could’ve had Michael Jordan too but no one ever talks about that.

    According to something I read recently, they declined Clyde and the #2 for Sampson, so they could've had Hakeem, Jordan and Clyde. Talk about what could've been...

    That was a great move by Stu. Then he blew it. Got us that Championship though. Inman was a great personnel man. But his ears were plugged to his friend Bobby Knight who told him, "Play Jordan at center".

    Blazers would have been better drafting David Bowie.
