Len Bias

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Len Bias' death. I'm not a basketball expert, but I was fortunate enough to attend many ACC basketball games when I was in school, and saw both Michael Jordan and Len Bias play. Jordan was amazing (I remember watching him literally jump over Virginia's Jim Miller on a drive to the basket), but I think Bias was the more electrifying of the two.

Like I said, I'm no expert, and my views may be colored by the fact that I watched Bias play for three seasons and Jordan only for one, but Len Bias is the best college basketball player that I ever saw.
