On Thursday night, 60 of the best college and international basketball players realized their dreams of having their name called in the NBA draft.

From No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson to No. 60 Vanja Marinkovic, the draft produced incredible stories.

Perhaps the best came late in the draft when it looked like a former college basketball star wouldn't hear his name called.

Former Tennessee star Jordan Bone sat surrounded by family as the picks went by. With over 55 picks already gone, Bone's brother hopped on the mic to give him some advice and encouragement about not being drafted.

And then it happened.

The Detroit Pistons selected Bone with the No. 57 pick in the draft.

His family mobbed him in elation, tackling him from his chair after they found out he was being drafted.

Check it out.

Luckily, no one was hurt in the making of this video.

Detroit traded into the No. 57 pick to draft Bone, who was one of the best athletes in the NBA combine this year.

During the Volunteers' magical season in 2018-19, Bone averaged 13.5 points and 5.8 assists. Now he'll try to help the Pistons make a resurgence in the Eastern Conference.

The next time we see Bone, he'll likely be suiting up in the Summer League.
