The 2020 NBA Draft - the 74th in league history - was one of a kind.
It was the first-ever Draft to be held virtually and only the second time since the inaugural edition in 1947 to be held after June. Despite the unique circumstances, the Draft was still a special and career-making moment for the prospects selected by the NBA teams.
And the NBA community - current and former players - reacted to the selections and tweeted out messages to the prospects.
I love this time of the year in the NBA. A lot of these young men's life long dreams are about to come true. Enjoy it guys. It's amazing!- DWade (@DwyaneWade) November 19, 2020

I really like Obi . Hope he does well. Seen him catch a lob from half court and windmill it 3 years ago and I had no idea who he was lol. I told him if you can make a corner trey with that bounce you will be a lottery pick and cash out.- CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) November 19, 2020
