For the first time this season, Nerlens Noel spoke with reports after practice. The following tweets will capture the jist of what Noel said.
GOOD NEWS! This is awesome to hear and it makes me want to jump up and down in my university’s library as I’m writing this. I’m almost tempted to run back to my apartment and throw on my Nerlens Noel shirshey and proclaim April 8th as “Nerlens Noel Day”. While it doesn’t seem like Noel will appear on court this year, these quotes have to make Sixers fans ecstatic.
With a full off-season ahead of him, Noel can only improve his game even more. The Sixers are taking their time with the big man from Kentucky and it appears that move is paying off right now. Everyone wants to catch a glimpse of Nerlens Noel in game action, but patience is a virtue and Sixers fan will need to attest to that.
