On the surface, this might seem like an easy decision.
You have the defending NBA Rookie of the Year, Michael Carter-Williams, on one side; the baby-faced floor general of the rebuilding Philadelphia 76ers coming off a season in which he was one of two players to average 16 points, six rebounds and six assists (the other player being LeBron James).
Then you have the enigma, Nerlens Noel. The gangly center who’s spent more time in suits on the sideline than 76ers apparel during his short tenure in Philadelphia.
The baby face vs. the high-top fade? Seems simple enough.
But for me, it’s Noel by a landslide for a variety of reasons, both on and perhaps more importantly off the court.
