You know that the scouts have been watching these games and are liking what they are seeing. Tyrus has played his best all around defensive basketball the last two games. The guy is all over the place. Today he was LSU's second leading scorer and was a complete forced to be reckoned with. He is an impact player in so many ways. He can change the moment of the game with a dunk or block. He can affect the other team (as we saw with Duke) in terms of penetrating. He's really improved his mid range jumper. Think of it this way, Aldridge is a potential lottery pick and the inside force of the Tigers virtually shut him down. I hope that he stays but if the goes it wouldnt suprise me. People say that he should look at the example that Brandon Bass set last year. He left early and regrets it. The difference between TT and BB is that Thomas has the ability to do so many more exciting things on the floor that the NBA wants. He can jump through the roof, block shots, and he's developing a jump shot. BB was a better all around player. Don' get me wrong, he has a lot of work to do. He needs to put on some weight and become a better ball handler. But some mock drafts have him top 10 and if you can go top 10, you can't pass that up. Has his performance really upped his draft stock?
