Raptors Win NBA Draft Lottery

RaptorsWe had the NBA's fifth worst record at 27-55 but we ended up jumping four spots to win our first draft lottery tonight. With Bryan Colangelo at the helm, this couldn't have worked out better.

Actually, that's not true. We could have won this thing when Lebron James was available. Underclassmen Adam Morrison of Gonzaga, Texas center LaMarcus Aldridge and LSU forward Tyrus Thomas are considered top candidates. None of them have a Lebron sized "can't miss" label tatooed on their foreheads. Let's hope this is a sign that our luck is changing for the better.

Draft well, Colangelo. Vince Carter good, Rafael Araujo bad. Got that?

Of course, the Raps actually did win the #1 pick in 1996 but league expansion rules prevented us from benefitting from it. We picked Marcus Camby at #2 while Philly picked Allen Iverson at #1.
