Joakim Noah Fever Spreads Nationwide

And now he's in the top spot, for the moment, in DraftExpress's mock draft.

ESPN's Chad Ford writes that most basketball people still think Tyrus Thomas would go number one, but I like the DraftExpress version of events, because it has Thomas going third overall to the Blazers.

By the way, I realize that mock drafts this far out are entirely pointless and have little to do with reality. But damn if it isn't fun to think about. For those of us who support cellar-dwelling teams, this is our Christmas.
