raptors win the nba draft lottery...

...and no one will trade for that pick. I called a few friends after getting the news last night, and after the euphoria of winning the lottery subsided, the reality of the draft rules set in.

As with every story, there is another side to the coin. This time the Raptors win the lottery the one year there isn't a consensus number one and the first year after the NBA institutes it's age restriction on draft eligible players (from 18 to 19). After the Raptors (and Grizzlies) were awarded franchises, the NBA had a new rule not allowing the crappy expansion teams to pick higher than fifth (I'm not sure of the exact number, but the rule I remember), I called that the Orlando rule, after the Magic scored Shaq and C-Webber in back-to-back drafts.
