in 1984.

Rockets wanted to get their hands on a Drexler + Olajuwon combo.

So, they offered then Starry Sampson, yet to be injured ( and only god knows if he would have gotten injured or not in portland) for drexler..

Wich means portland would have had Sampson wich means they would have drafted either Jordan or Barkley.


Houston Glyde + Drea

Portl Jordan+ Sampson or Barkley + sampson.


Chi most probably would have selected Bowie if he was availeble at pick 3.

So.
What would have happened?

I don't think Scottie Pippen would have been traded to Portland...

Rick Adelman would have been the greatest coach ever... Jordan would have had less than 3 rings

I actually read Hakeem Olajuwan's biography and in it he said that the original trades would've landed all 3 to Houston.

I can't remember the exact details but it was going to be Sampson and a future 1st for Drexler and the #2 pick, which would've been Jordan.

So the Rockets would've had Olajuwan, Jordan and Drexler.

They would've been undoubtedly the best trio ever, and even with scrubs around them, in the running for best team ever...

Nelson
VC/Batum
Granger
Lewis
Howard

Closing the thread. Not a bad debate topic but the responses weren't mostly offensive.
