There were plenty of smiles at C.J. McCollum's table in the green room at the NBA Draft, and that was before he was selected.

McCollum and his Lehigh family knew he was poised to make history by being drafted, and that's exactly what happened in round one Thursday night. 

McCollum didn't have to wait too long to hear his name called. He was taken 10th overall by the Portland Trailblazers.
