In the 1984 draft, Sam Bowie (No. 2 pick) and Sam Perkins (No. 4) had some pretty good company in the top five: Hakeem Olajuwon (No. 1), Michael Jordan (No. 3) and Charles Barkley (No. 5). In addition, John Stockton was a steal at No. 16. Former All-Stars Alvin Robertson (No. 7) and Kevin Willis (No. 11), along with ex-Blazers standout Jerome Kersey (No. 46), helped round out the class.
