Could Bias have been better than MJ?


Could Bias have been better than MJ?

Len Bias passed away on June 19, 1986 from a cocaine overdose, just two days after the Celtics chose him as the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft.

Since the cause of death negatively impacted his reputation and how he's memorialized, Bias was never inducted into the University of Maryland's athletics hall of fame. Despite his alma mater's lack of honors, the Washington D.C., Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame feels Bias has earned an induction for his talents he possessed on the court. He will be honored this Saturday.'s Dave Ungrady takes a look at Bias' top moments that defined his legacy.

In their only matchup together, Bias outscored Michael Jordan 24-21 going head-to-head at College Park. However, North Carolina went on to beat the Terps, 74-62.

If Bias had played in the NBA before his passing, would he have been better than Jordan?

Bastian Schweinsteiger happy with Manchester United's Europa League win

Bastian Schweinsteiger's time with Manchester United wound down with him being essentially frozen out of the team for an extended period, but he was still happy to see his former teammates win a European trophy on Wednesday.

Man U beat Ajax 2-0 to win the Europa League final in Stockholm. The win sealed a berth in next year's Champions League for the Red Devils.

Despite the way Schweinsteiger's tenure in England ended, the German midfielder has still said positive things about the club since leaving for the Chicago Fire in March. He tweeted out a good luck message to the team ahead of the final.

Paul Pogba scored in the first half and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored in the second half to seal United's win and the trophy to end a season that included a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Schweinsteiger didn't play in any Premier League matches this season, but his last appearance for the Manchester club was as a subtitute in the Europa League round of 32 at French club Saint-Etienne.

Training with the Fire on Wednesday kept him from watching the whole final, but he said he did watch what he could.

“I’m happy for United," Schweinsteiger said after the Fire's 2-1 win against Dallas. "I’m happy for them. They are a good team and I’m happy they can play in Champions League next year.”
