The Washington Post
The late great Len Bias

Maryland’s Len Bias was a ridiculously talented player. The only guy who was seriously mentioned as a rival to Michael Jordan, we’ll never know if he could have matched him in the NBA since Bias died of a cocaine overdose on the night he was drafted by the Boston Celtics.

Watch some video though and you’ll see just how devastating a weapon he was. After his death he became a cautionary tale but there’s no getting past the immense talent Bias possessed.
