Gotta defend the Blazers here...

 

Sam Bowie over Jordan is debatable, but the Blazers had just invested in SG Clyde Drexler the year before. So Portland taking a talented big man did make sense.

 

As for Greg Oden over Durant, Oden was a 100% lock to go #1 in that draft, no matter who had that pick. Seattle takes Oden had they won the first pick. If anything, the lottery handed KD to the Sonics more than the Blazers did.

 

Agree totally about the Oden pick. There didn't seem to be any indication that he would need any microfracture surgery. 

 

However, Bowie should have been off of Portland's draft board. He had so many red flags. I think that Barkley would have been the best pick. Jordan was too much of a ball hog. If Phil Jackson never came along to cater to his ego, the Bulls probably don't win six rings.

Oden did have a pretty spotty college career, though.  There were some question marks about his future durability.

 

His best game in college, though, was in the national championship game.  So perhaps that eased some minds....

Oh piss off you built a team that won a championship, went to back to back finals, and had a record breaking 73-9 team from the draft. You got nothing to complain about.

In 2005, the Packers had a shot at several skill position players that could've given Brett Favre more weapons around him. Instead that drafted a backup QB who wouldn't even get a chance to start for three friggin' years.
