The 2014 NBA Draft went like most people expected: the Cleveland Cavaliers took Andrew Wiggins with the top overall pick, and the Milwaukee Bucks selected Jabari Parker number two. But even if there wasn’t much drama at the top of the show, the rest of Draft night was full of excitement — and surprises.
We run down the big moments and highlights from last night, straight from the floor of the Barclays Center!
Later today, basketball’s top prospects will enter the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and hope to hear their name called at the 2014 NBA Draft. But yesterday, those same young players had some work to do. Namely, meeting the press.
Draft Media Day was a chance for these soon-to-be-superstars to get used to being surrounded by a large number of journalists.

Hockey fans have spoken, and they've voted Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron on to the cover of EA Sports' NHL15. The cover was revealed during the NHL Awards presentation in Las Vegas earlier this week.
Voting began a few weeks ago with a field of eight players. Bergeron was one finalist, breakout Montreal Canadiens defenseman PK Subban was the other, with the Bruin earning the coveted spot as the face of the game.

Heads up, Dodgers: You no longer have the market cornered on no-hitters this season. Earlier today, Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum no-hit the San Diego Padres for his second no-no of his career. What's more, his first no-no came less than a year ago, on July 13, 2013, against — that's right — the Padres.
"I wasn't really thinking about it out there, and at the very end it caught me by surprise, and what do you know? You got a no-hitter," Lincecum said.
