How'd you like to be the Portland Trailblazers? In 1984 they had the distinction of making the worst draft decision in the history of mankind in passing over Michael Jordan to pick Sam Bowie.
Tomorrow they will have to decide again between two potentially great players, who also happen to be a big man (like Bowie) and a scorer (like Jordan), as they once again are faced with having the #1 pick of the NBA draft. (The draft to me is the only interesting thing about the NBA these days, but I digress).
Taking a lesson from history, they should go with the scorer this time and not the dominant big man. The last time they took the big guy, it didn't work out so well.
Not that Kevin Durant is a little guy at 6-10, but he's not going to play center.
I think whatever they do, they're screwed. Whoever they pick will be a bust. It's just the way it is. It's the curse of Sam Bowie.
The guy they pass on will go on to win 6 championships. It's inevitable.
And Portland will go down with #1 and #2 in the list of worst sports decisions of all time.
