Sporting News;3/8/2004, Vol. 228 Issue 10, p23
The periodical "Sporting News" takes a look at moments that have defined sports and how history easily could have been rewritten. It speculates what would have happened if the events that set the foundation for sports had taken alternate courses. Some such events which didn't happen, but could have happened, include the death penalty given to Kentucky basketball in 1989, selection of basketball player Michael Jordan by Chicago basketball team by Portland team, which selected Sam Bowie in the 1984 NBA draft instead of Jordan.
