Draft lottery unkind to Tyrus Thomas
A handful of Internet mock drafts (and we all know who accurate those are) had Thomas going as the No. 1 pick before the lottery. However, it appears that will change.
Thomas is an athletic power forward who can run the court. The Raptors already have Chris Bosh and Charlie Villaneuva, athletic forwards who can run the court. So at first glance it appears that, while Thomas likely will remain a lottery pick, he won't become the first LSU player since Shaquille O'Neal to go No. 1 overall.
