Sixers Fans Hoping For An Exciting Duo


While several Sixers fans are being negative about the draft, I’m trying to stay positive, and continually realizing that there is a lot to be looking forward to with Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel now in Sixers jerseys. One of those big positives is that MCW and Noel are best friends, and teammate chemistry is key.

Noel said,

They have a great organization, especially being there with one of my best friends growing up in Michael Carter-Williams. I’m definitely looking forward to that.

Carter-Williams said,

Me and Nerlens grew up together. We’re best friends  We played on the same AAU team together in high school. It’s like a dream come true. We always talked about how we were both going to make it to the NBA. For us to make it on the same team is a blessing. We grew up together and we’re really good friends. I just got here and he was like, ‘Yo, I can’t believe we’re going to be playing together.’ We were talking about living next door to each other. We’re excited.

Both of these two guys are explosive and exciting to watch. If you combine great teammate chemistry with explosiveness, hopefully you’re going to be watching an exciting duo Sixers fans, especially after watching this.
