This week, we look at a man who could have been one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Number 1 overall draft pick & every accolade that exists. He was even Michael Jordan's idol. So, how did this sure thing turn so wrong? Cocaine. Cocaine. Oh, and cocaine. His career was even ended at Studio 54, of all places. A tragic story, that everyone should know about. A wild, unexpected tale!

Win a national championship, float through the air like you're weightless, and throw it all in the garbage because of sweet, sweet cocaine with David "Skywalker" Thompson!!

Check us out, every Tuesday!

We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!
