I didn’t even expect to be invited. This competition is a step up from what I am used to. I am a little in awe.” [4] Porter entered the final 20 (despite his chickenpox [5]), but in a team with heavy guards (Jordan, Alford, Fern Fleming, Alvin Robertson and Leon Wood), Porter was waived in May in 13th 1984, with Charles Barkley (Charles Barkley) and John Stockton (John Stockton).
