I was thinking he had to have less than Webber.
Not during the first 4 seasons.
ESPN showed the list last night and I was surprised to see Webber lead it. I think they showed 3-4 guys, and Bowie was in there, just don't remember the order.
EDIT: Just found a modified list in the article on ESPN. They include David Robinson (Bowie wasn't #1 overall, he was picked #2 after Olajuwon, and played 139 games his first 4 years). Robinson had his Navy commitment, which was two years, and ESPN is wrong as he played 164 games his first 4 years.http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5819493
The true top 4 now are Oden, Webber, Bill Walton and Mychal Thompson. Oden, Walton and Thompson were #1 overall picks by Portland. That's as close to a true curse as you can get.
