Projected as a solid first rounder in the 1984 NBA draft, Bowie was chosen by the Portland Trail Blazers as the second selection, ahead of Hall of Famer Michael Jordan, due to Portland already having drafted Clyde Drexler just a year before. He is considered to be one of the greatest draft busts in NBA history.
Since his retirement, Bowie has been involved in harness racing, both owning and training horses that run at The Red Mile in Lexington. For a time, Bowie did color commentary for Kentucky Basketball.
