Nine Days Away From "4-4-14", Nerlens Noel is at 80 Percent

Molly Sullivan! Nerlens Noel! EIGHTY PERCENT!

This has it all. Leave it to Molly Sullivan to send the Sixers twitter world into an upheaval with a tweet about Nerlens Noel. I mean, what else do you have to look forward too during a 25 game losing streak? Not much, that’s for sure. This tweet comes about a week out from the “4-4-14″ date that Noel suspiciously tweeted about a few weeks ago. At first, it seemed that it wouldn’t be possible for Noel to play by that day.

However, Nerlens Noel being at 80 percent means that he is damn close to being ready to partake in his first NBA game. Can you imagine that? How excited would Sixers fans be? FINALLY something to look forward too that isn’t Tony Wroten charging 100 percent at the rim and then trying to throw a pass from the Seattle Pro-Am that winds up in the fifth row.

Could there finally be something to put a smile on our faces? April 4th is next Friday — leaving about a week for Noel to go from 80-to-100 percent. I’m not sure how possible that is, considering Noel still has to participate in five-on-five practices for any talk about game action to occur. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t appear in games after that date. That may seem like a more realistic possibility. Maybe we see Noel tweet out another date, who knows!

All I know that is the chances are increasing for Nerlens Noel to appear in a Philadelphia Sixers uniform this season and WE ARE LOVIN IT!
