As they say, only the good die young. In one of the most tragic stories in sports history, former University of Maryland superstar, Len Bias, overdosed on cocaine shortly after being selected No. 1 overall by the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Draft. Bias was supposed to be the next face of the historic franchise; the up-and-coming superstar ready to take over the role once occupied by an aging Larry Bird. However, it was never meant to be. Bias died on June 19, 1986, having never played a single minute in the NBA, only leaving behind his legendary potential, and whole mess of "what ifs" for basketball fans to consider.
