Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Clyde Drexler

Start here


Picture Michael Jordan and Clyde Drexler on the same team in Portland. It almost happened. Portland had the number one pick in 1984 and could have drafted Michael Jordan to team up with Clyde Drexler but the Portland Trailblazers took Sam Bowie. The Bulls took Jordan and the rest as they say is history.

During his career, he was a ten-time All-Star, and named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Drexler won an Olympic gold medal in 1992 as part of the 1992 United States men’s Olympic basketball team (“The Dream Team”) and an NBA Championship in 1995 with the Houston Rockets. He is a two-time Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee (being inducted 2004 for his individual career, and in 2010 as a member of the “Dream Team”)
