Blazers Dominate "Waste Of Talent" List

TheBigLead.com pulled together a list of the top 10 wastes of basketball talent in the last 20 years. Former Portland Trail Blazers made up 40% of the list: Darius Miles, J.R. Rider, Rasheed Wallace and ... Arvydas Sabonis. ---------------------- Blame the Russians. Sabonis was a teenage star in Russia and drafted by the Blazers in 1985. But Russia prevented him from going to the NBA, and then a slew of injuries while playing international ball took their toll on him, and he didn’t get to the NBA until 1995 (when he was nearly 31). You may remember him dominating at the 1988 Summer Olympics (Russia won the gold). Might have ended up being a top 10 center in NBA history if he had gotten to the NBA in his early 20s. ---------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
