NWSB Editor Bryant Knox takes a trip down memory lane and recaps the Portland Trail Blazers’ five worst draft picks in franchise history. Greg Oden, Sam Bowie, LaRue Martin, Martell Webster and Sebastian Telfair all make the list. With the 2013 draft right around the corner, let’s hope Portland grabs someone closer in talent and potential to Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge.
NWSB Insider and Portland Trail Blazers blogger Steve Lee Stella tells us all about what true Rip City hoops fans already know. The Blazers have drafted poorly in their history. Possibly the poorest of all NBA teams. Many fans are well aware of the wisdom and success that was put into and come out of selecting such memorable names as Sebastian Telfair, Martell Webster, Greg Oden, LaRue Martin and Sam Bowie.
NWSB insider Steve Lee tells us If the Blazers ever need to dip into the PAST to grab an all-star team, he would choose these 5 guys. Brandon Roy, Clyde Drexler, Greg Oden, Jerome Kersey and Arvydas Sabonis. The Blazers would give any team fits with this lineup.
