Bowie wasnt a terrible pick when it was made - it was a slightly risky pick but it made sense for the team as it addressed need and there was absolutely no reason to suspect MJ would be any better Clyde the Glide - Im in the future too
It wasn't like Portland didn't have a team when the '84 draft came around -- it was a solid group that needed a center to match up with the Kareems, Artis Gilmores and Ralph Sampsons in the conference.
4 signs you are about to make a bad pick:
you are about to use the #1 overall to select someone from a non-traditional/non-major/barely Div 1A school like um, I dont know, how about Pacific?
you are about to use the #1 overall to select a player who has less than 3 years of experience with the sport previous to your selection
you are about to take him ahead of Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce, Dirk Nowitzki and Mike Bibby
your name is Elgin
