WATCH: Nerlens Noel “The Return”


With all the hype about the 2014 NBA Draft, Nerlens Noel has been thrown into the back shadow. All the talk is what the 76ers are going to do with the No. 3 and No. 10 picks in the draft, with no mention of Noel, who was considered a consensus No. 1 selection in the 2013 NBA Draft before his ACL injury.

Noel took the whole season off, recovering from his torn ACL, and rehabbing for the upcoming season. Below is a video of some of his rehab and you can see how hard he is working to make his Sixers debut a memorable one. It might be Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker during the NBA Draft, but Nerlens Noel is the piece that 76ers fans have been awaiting for a whole year. The wait is almost over. Summer league is approaching!
