It's obvious to everyone that Len Bias was a sure fire 1st ballot hall of famer, despite never having played a game in the NBA. I mean, how many can't miss prospects ever miss? The answer? None. Never in the history of pro sports has an unproven rookie ever failed to live up to the hype. Len Bias was going to obliterate every record ever and extend the 80s Celtic dynasty for 15 more years. Look at the players drafted around him, all legends in their own right: Brad Daugherty. Chris Washburn. Chuck Person. Kenny Walker. William Bedford. Roy Tarpley. He would've fit right in with that murder's row. His place among the greats was pretty much etched in stone from the time he was drafted, as no top 5 pick in history ever failed to make the HOF. So sad.
