Top tweets of the 2014 NBA Draft - Kobe Bryant and LeBron James feature

Twitter

The stars of the NBA tweeted their delight at their franchises' draft picks.

The NBA Draft is always a huge night on Twitter, and this year was no different.

Prospects celebrated being drafted to their new teams, the league's best players voiced their approval of their teams' picks, and the Twittersphere reacted to some of the draft's best moments.

The night kicked off with the Cavaliers selecting Andrew Wiggins with the first pick, and the Kansas man stole the show with his flashy suit. The floral-patterned blazer even caught the attention of actor Steve Martin.

Wiggins should be a great player for the Cavs, and new Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel sent his support to the top pick and welcomed him to Cleveland.

Three picks later Aaron Gordon was selected by the Orlando Magic. The power forward had a unique way of expressing his delight at the prospect of moving to Florida.

Marcus Smart went to the Celtics at number six, which could spell the end of the road in Boston for fellow point guard Rajon Rondo. Sportsnation tweeted this:

With the next pick, the Lakers selected Kentucky forward Julius Randle. Randle is a longtime fan of the Lakers and of shooting guard Kobe Bryant. He posted a photo on instagram of himself in a Bryant jersey as a kid, and Bryant welcomed him to Los Angeles.

Later on in the night Bill Simmons could not hide his delight on-air when his Celtics took James Young.

LeBron James showed his support of new Miami Heat point guard Shabazz Napier. Could this mean the four-time MVP is staying with the team?

And finally, the moment of the night, when the NBA drafted Baylor forward Isaiah Austin. Austin was likely to be selected in the draft before he was found to have a genetic illness called Marfan Syndrome, which meant he could never play competitive basketball again.

Austin's dream was taken away from him, but with an honorary pick the league made sure hs did not piss out on his NBA draft moment.
