The 1984 NBA draft is most remembered as the one where Michael
Jordan slipped to third behind number-one pick Hakeem
Olajuwon...and the immortal Sam Bowie. You could understand the
Houston Rockets choosing Olajuwon, but how on earth could the
Portland Trailblazers pass up Jordan for the injury-prone Bowie?
For the first time, Filip Bondy pieces together the entire
backstory of the draft: from Michael Jordan's indecision over
whether he should declare himself eligible for the NBA draft after
his junior year...to Charles Barkley's calculated attempt to avoid
being drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers and to improve his position
at the Olympic trials...to the trades that were considered but
fatefully never made.
