Thomas caught wreck in the Big East, taking home the conference's Player of the Year honors. Tim was arguably the best player in high school while at Paterson Catholic, yes, even better than Kobe. But he essentially hurt his draft stock by not going straight to the L out of high scool. He didn't count on Keith Van Horn's epic year at Utah where he carried the Utes all the way to the National Finals. With that being said, another year at 'Nove wouldn't have hurt. Thomas would've figured out his game instead of camping out by the three-point line for most of his NBA career.
