In one of the most hilarious moments of the draft, DeShaun Thomas was selected by the San Antonio Spurs at pick No. 58. Why was it so funny? Because Thomas made headlines during the predraft process when he refused to give the Spurs his phone number.
Said Thomas at the time: “I can’t go around giving it out to everyone. Now if they want to draft me, I’d be happy to give it to them.”
Well, the Spurs drafted him! Funny stuff.
Give credit to the San Antonio front office for not getting offended by Thomas not supplying his phone number. For all parties involved, let’s hope he pans out so that this story will live on forever.
