Tonight is the night that dreams become reality for thirty young men. Tonight, a select few will get to stand in front of thousands of people at the Barclays Center and shake hands with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. For those lucky enough to hear their name called, all the hours in the gym, the innumerable reps in the gym, all become worth the effort. They are now members of an NBA team. Join us as we discuss the 2015 NBA Draft.
