    I boarded the Red Line in the District in 1986, for a trip out to Landover, Maryland, where the 1986 NBA Draft was simulcast on a big screen inside the Capital Center, then home to the Washington Bullets, the 1978 NBA champions. I watched the draft in the Capital Center, televised from New York. Bias was picked #2. The fans in New York booed when the Knicks selected Kentucky star Kenny Walker with the 5th pick, who later won the All Star slam dunk competition. Bias was dead within days of his selection by the Celtics. Maryland and the District were both in shock. What a unit that might have been. DJ, Bird, McHale, Parish, you could imagine Bias on the floor with those four..

    Len Bias' death is arguably the reason I never tried drugs of any kind. He died from an overdose of cocaine and it was my understanding at the time that it was the first time he ever tried it (that may or may not be true). I just figured if somebody around my age (I was 17 in 1986) like him who was 6'8" 230 pounds and a physical freak of nature could die then maybe drugs aren't such a great idea. True story.

    I saw Michael play his last 3 years of College and none of them would be as good as the GOAT's after just 2 years in Pro Basketball, and NO ONE was prepared for what he would become by 86 and 88.... And even after, when everybody was already more than aware and still amazed, what it happened out of nowhere (beyond expected by others who studied his game again and again and trained against it) whenever the games became uphill rocky mountains for his team. You just had to be there to watch it, that MOJO that made his skills redundant I never seen before or AFTER never again. Regardless that many try to keep calling others every new season batch of pro players, "the next", "the new", the "better" Michael Jordan ever. There is no such thing, and all those who were at one time better than him when young and undeveloped to his full capacity of growth, where they stood in 1989, and where they stand now? The same like Charles Barkley or Magic or Ewing or even Shaq many times again and again, eyes wide opened, shaking their heads because he just passed in front of them _and it was simply not to believe. Even when they and even more his own team mates like Pippen and others knew how his game moved, but a different thing when seeing it activated in front of you. I still havent seen alike, regardless points or records made in different ways to push and charge a game. When you see how a Panther moves like lightning you cant mind how Rhinos or Elephants and Giraffes may dominate a field. The fastest Bruce Lee would steal your porn stache right under your nose with only two fingers, and you didn't see it coming even if you knew he could do such.

    Fist off - great piece, I was not aware of them meeting at a HS BB Camp before seeing this - I do remember my whole HS (Rockville, MD.) being brought into the Auditorium over the Death of Len Bias. Option to seek further counseling if we needed it. Not to mention to give us the "just say NO to drugs" speech over again as if Nancy Regan herself was standing on the stage. It was a sad moment in Maryland Sports. I think Boston takes away one East Title, if not two from Chicago if Len didn't tragically die. However, all just speculation, we will never know. We can say that it would have made the NBA East Conference far more competitive in the late 80s & Early 90s as a whole.

    Michael Jordan’s athletic prowess was always upfront and wonderful, amazing to see. The talented, competitive, virtual superhero of a player who seemed to defy the laws of physics. But he had another side that many people never got to see. His kindness towards young kids, especially the disabled fans who came to see him play. After having 5 girls my Uncle and Aunt Ron and Jane Axium decided that they were called to adopt or foster 4 disabled kids. The first was my cousin Christopher. When Chris was adopted doctors told my aunt and uncle that Chris would never walk, might never talk clearly and would almost certainly die before 25. That was in the early 80’s. My aunt and uncle brought in half the neighborhood to pattern Chris, move his arm and leg muscles in ways that would increase nerve connections, help speech and coordination and hopefully extend his life. It worked. They did everything they could to mainstream and give Chris great experiences. One of those was taking Chris to Bulls games. By then MJ was a superstar and an amazing phenomenon to watch. Beauty in motion, top of the world. But somehow, he noticed the families with disabled perks and got to know them. Chris was 4’8? Jordon towered over him. But he especially liked these kids who showed such raw adoration for him. He got them great seats, near the team, so he could see their reactions, gave them signed posters and basketballs and on one special day gave Chris a full Chicago Bulls Uniform complete with shoes, socks, trunks, shirt (#24) and a personally signed basketball. For as long as I can remember whenever I walked over to their house, Chris was outside in uniform dribbling that ball. As time went on his coordination got better and better and he eventually took drum lessons at a music shop around the corner which would have stunned those early doctors. Of course, Chris is a wonderful human being who I admire for his joy and love of family. Here’s the thing though. In all those years in Chicago, I never saw a press release or story about Jordan’s acts of kindness to Chris and young fans like him. He had an impact on Chris’s life and transferred some small part of his drive to Chris. Enough so that one chilly fall Chicago night while Chris was sleeping on the back porch, “camping out” which he liked to do. He woke up when a disturbed kid who tried to set a number of churches on fire also, set their back porch on fire possibly because the kid was cold. Chris heard the back doorbell ring because the flames of the back porch working their way inwards and shorted the wires ringing the bell. This woke Chris, who rather than just running out the front door in panic, woke up his parents then his sisters and brothers upstairs. They all got out of the house literally seconds before a flash back from the open back door engulfed the interior of the house with flames. The kid with Downs Syndrome had saved 11 people’s lives that night. How much of that was enabled by Jordan’s kindness? I don’t know. Much of the credit goes to his immediate family and the many dozens in the neighborhood who volunteered helping to pattern The 4 adopted and fostered kids. But he certainly didn’t hurt.

    You claim Bias would have challenged Jordan in the pros. We saw Isaiah challenge him but then you said after Jordan got his peak Isaiah never won again. We saw already Jordan dominate Bias in two games at the college level. You claim the second game Bias got the best of Jordan which I did not see. I think you just said that to make it a revenge thing in the 3rd game to embellish the story. Given Jordan cradle dunked at the end says to me they won the second game too? Jordan would have continued to dominate him in the pros as well. Also given the fact the guy died of drugs he wasn't managing his life correctly and would not have been in the condition needed night in and night out. Jordan would have dominated with or without Bias in the NBA.
