Hakeem Olajuwon and which other player was selected before Michael Jordan in the 1984 NBA draft?
Answer: Sam Bowie is the guy who was drafted ahead of Michael Jordan. He always will be the guy who was drafted ahead of Michael Jordan.
But the No. 2 overall pick in the 1984 NBA draft may have added another clause to his legacy recently. Bowie, whose 10-season NBA career was marred by leg injuries, says he lied to the Portland Trail Blazers before the draft. He opened up for a documentary, Going Big, which will air on Dec. 20 on ESPNU.
