Worst Draft Day Decisions in NBA History

10 of 17

Sam Bowie (Blazers)

Of course, we have to put this pick on this list, but I don't think it was nearly as bad as people seem to think it was. The Blazers already had a player in the Jordan mold (Clyde Drexler), and it sounds like the Bulls would have picked Bowie (right), too, if they had had the second pick. After the draft, a disappointed Rod Thorn, the Bulls GM at the time, said of Jordan, "We wish he were seven feet tall, but he isn't. There just wasn't a center available. What can you do?" In other words, the Bulls wished they had had the No. 2 pick, so they could have picked Bowie. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Marty Lederhandler)
