2015 NBA Draft Results: Check Out All 60 Selections

Brooklyn's Barclays Center played host to the 2015 NBA draft on Thursday.

New York Knicks fans mercilessly boo their home team's draft choice

The night saw dramatic highs - like D'Angelo Russell jumping Jahlil Okafor for the No. 2 pick - and controversial lows - like Knicks fans crying over the news of their team's selection, Latvian center Kristaps Porzingis.

Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns won the night by earning the Minnesota Timberwolves No. 1 pick. He and his college teammates Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker became 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th Kentucky players, respectively, to be taken in the first round of the draft since 2010.
