Portland Trail Blazers: Clyde Drexler (BEST)
Clyde “the Glide” Drexler was an eight time All Star for the Trail Blazers, and he leads the team all time in points, free throws, steals, and offensive rebounds, a well rounded player that averaged 21 points, six boards, six assists, and two steals a game for Portland.
He also led the Blazers to the NBA Finals but faced a common foe there in Michael Jordan, who also blocked him from winning the MVP the same season. Drexler would be part of the gold medal Dream Team that summer, too. It was quite a year for the greatest Blazer ever.
Portland Trail Blazers: Sam Bowie (WORST)
With respect to mega busts Greg Oden and 1972 number one pick LaRue Martin, Sam Bowie will always be the player that makes Portland fans take a long drag on their cigarettes as they stare off wistfully into the distance. Bowie was a super talented big man out of Kentucky whom the Blazers drafted second overall, but he struggled with injuries his whole career with different-sized legs that were never quite right.
It turns out Portland probably should have taken the guy the Chicago Bulls took with the next pick in the draft: Michael Jeffrey Jordan. Heck, Portland would probably have been happy with some of the other guys drafted that year too like Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, and John Stockton.
