The only development that could make Isiah Thomas happier than last week`s NBA Draft lottery results is Kobe Bryant in a Knicks` uniform.
The chance of that happening is slimmer than the 1.9 percent chance the Bulls had of winning the Greg Oden/Kevin Durant lottery with the Knicks` pick. Bryant emphatically demanded a trade yesterday before backtracking hours later.
Thomas, who considers Bryant the best talent in basketball, will participate in The Kobe Lottery, if there is one. An insider said Thomas, here at the pre-draft camp at Walt Disney World`s Milkhouse Gym, will monitor the situation.
