Brook Lopez a Draft Night Gift

Brook Lopez is having a heck of a January, averaging 14 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocked shots, shooting 50% overall and nearly 90% from the foul line. That's better than expected, but then the Nets didn't expect he'd be playing for them at all. On Draft Night, they figured they might get his brother Robin or speedy guard Jerryd Bayless. Instead, the hoops gods smiled on East Rutherford and the rest could be, well, history.
