NBA Draft
 < 1983 1985 > 

The 1984 NBA Draft was the 38th annual draft of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The draft was held at the Felt Forum at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York on June 19, 1984 before the 1984–85 season. The draft was broadcast in the United States on the USA Network.[1] In this draft, 23 NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players. The first overall pick was awarded to the Houston Rockets, who won the coin flip between the teams who finished last in each conference.[2] The remaining first-round picks and the subsequent rounds were assigned to teams in reverse order of their win–loss record in the previous season. The Cleveland Cavaliers were awarded an extra first-round draft pick as compensation for the draft picks traded away by their previous owner, Ted Stepien.[3] The draft consisted of 10 rounds comprising 228 players selected. This draft was the last to be held before the creation of the Draft Lottery in 1985.[4]

The Houston Rockets used their first pick to draft Hakeem Olajuwon (then known as Akeem Olajuwon), a junior center from the University of Houston. Nigeria-born Olajuwon became the second international player to be drafted first overall, after Mychal Thompson from The Bahamas in 1978.[5] The Portland Trail Blazers, who obtained the Indiana Pacers' first-round draft pick from a previous trade, used the second overall pick to draft Sam Bowie from the University of Kentucky. The Chicago Bulls used the third pick to draft College Player of the Year Michael Jordan from the University of North Carolina.[6][7] Jordan went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award and was also selected to the All-NBA Second Team in his rookie season.[8] Jordan's teammate at North Carolina, Sam Perkins, was drafted fourth by the Dallas Mavericks. Charles Barkley, a junior forward from Auburn University, was drafted fifth by the Philadelphia 76ers. Olajuwon, Jordan and Barkley were among the nine players with college eligibility remaining who declared for the draft.[9][10]

Olajuwon, Jordan and Barkley, along with the 16th pick John Stockton, have been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame.[11] They were also named to the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History list announced at the league's 50th anniversary in 1996.[12] Olajuwon's achievements includes 2 NBA championships, 2 Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards, 1 regular season MVP Award, 1 Defensive Player of the Year Award, 12 All-NBA Team selections and 12 All-Star Game selections. Olajuwon retired as the all–time league leader in total blocked shots with 3,830 blocks.[13] The third pick, Jordan, achieved greater success than Olajuwon. He won 6 NBA championships, 6 Finals MVP Awards, 5 MVP Awards, 1 Defensive Player of the Year Award, 11 All-NBA Team selections and 14 All-Star Game selections.[8] Barkley and Stockton never won an NBA championship, but both players received numerous awards and honors. Barkley won the regular season MVP in 1993 and was selected to 11 All-NBA Teams and 11 All-Star Games.[14] Stockton was selected into 11 All-NBA Teams and 10 All-Star Games before retiring as the all–time league leader in assists and steals.[15] Seventh pick Alvin Robertson is the only other player from this draft who has won an annual NBA award as a player; he won the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 1986.[16] Third round pick Rick Carlisle became a coach after ending his playing career and won the Coach of the Year Award in 2002 while coaching the Detroit Pistons.[17]

The 1984 draft class is considered to be one of the best in NBA history as it produced four Hall of Famers and seven All-Stars.[18][19][20][21] However, it was marked by the Blazers' controversial drafting of Sam Bowie, considered as one of the biggest draft busts in NBA history.[22][23][24][25] It is believed that the Blazers picked Bowie over Jordan because they already had a young shooting guard in Clyde Drexler, whom they drafted in the 1983 Draft.[8][26] Although Drexler went on to have a successful career, Bowie's career was cut short by injuries; he had missed two of the past three seasons in his college career as well.[7] Despite having a 10-year career in the NBA and averaging 10.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, Bowie's career was interrupted by five leg surgeries, which limited him to 139 games in 5 years with the Blazers.[27][28]

Brazilian Oscar Schmidt was drafted in the sixth round by the New Jersey Nets. However, Schmidt turned down the offers to play in the NBA and stayed to play in Italy and later in Brazil. He played in five Olympics and was the top scorer in three of them. He finished his career with 49,703 points with various clubs and the Brazilian national team, more than the NBA's career scoring leader, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who scored 38,387 points in his NBA career.[29] University of Houston's track and field athlete Carl Lewis, who had never played college basketball, was drafted by the Chicago Bulls with their 208th pick in the 10th round.[6][30] Lewis stayed with his athletics career and went on to win nine Olympic gold medals and eight World Championships gold medals.[31] In the fifth round, the Portland Trail Blazers drafted Mike Whitmarsh, who starred for the University of San Diego in both basketball and volleyball. Whitmarsh played professional basketball in Germany for three years, but never played in the NBA. He then left basketball to play beach volleyball, where he achieved greater success, including a silver medal in the Olympics.[32]

^ a: Hakeem Olajuwon was born in Nigeria, but became a naturalized United States citizen in 1993. He has represented United States in international basketball competitions. When he arrived in the United States, the University of Houston incorrectly spelled his first name "Akeem". Olajuwon used that spelling until March 9, 1991, when he announced that he would add an H.[13][33]
^ b: As compensation for the first-round draft picks traded away by the previous owner, Ted Stepien, the Cleveland Cavaliers were awarded extra first-round draft picks in the 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986 drafts in exchange for cash.[3][34]
^ c: Even though Tim McCormick was a senior, he had one year of college eligibility remaining and thus had to apply for early entry.[9]
