The 2017 NBA Draft has finally arrived!

While we won’t see any Michigan State Spartans drafted tonight, it’s still a great experience watching players from around the world have their basketball dreams realized. Thankfully, it won’t include Miles Bridges, who would have been a top-10 pick had he entered the draft, but he opted instead to return to school and possibly be a higher pick next year.

Hopefully, we’ll also get to see Eron Harris and Alvin Ellis sign training camp deals with NBA teams once the draft concludes. They deserve to get a chance at their professional dreams, even if they are a long shot.

Until then, here’s everything you need to watch and follow tonight’s festivities:
