Re: Houston Rockets missed out on acquiring Michael Jordan.....twice
The number one blunder in Portland Trail Blazer history?
Bowie ahead of Jordan?
Oden ahead of Durant?
The number one blunder in Portland Trail Blazer history was dealing Moses Malone prior to the 1976-77 season.
Once upon a time, the fall of 1976 to be exact, a twenty-two year old, nearly indestructible, rebounding machine named Moses Malone wore the uniform of the Portland Trail Blazers.
How Malone came not to wear Blazer red and black and not help Bill Walton, Maurice Lucas and company win three or four consecutive NBA championships warrants a recounting. Why? If, in a few days Portland's front office screws up the pick, we can all find consolation that the front office screwed up worse before, even worse than not selecting Jordan.
