Finally, the 2016 NBA Draft is upon us.

No more mock drafts. No more speculating who goes where. No more talk.

Now, we get to watch as around 60 young men get the opportunity of a lifetime to be drafted into the NBA. We also get to watch anywhere from 2-4 Michigan State Spartans have their NBA dreams realized.
We get to see Denzel Valentine continue what's been an amazing basketball career already.

We get to watch Deyonta Davis continue his growth into a force in the paint.

Hopefully, we'll also see Matt Costello and Bryn Forbes find NBA teams that allow them to continue their basketball careers.

Anytime a professional sports league holds their annual draft, it's a special night, and the NBA Draft is no different. Here's everything you'll need to watch and follow the 2016 NBA Draft.
