Wow word just came out that Nerlans Noel tore his ACL, Very sad day for him, his family, fans and the Kentucky squad. I remember when he decided he was going to attend UK i thought he'd be a player that i wouldnt be too fond of... He came across as cocky and arrogant but after watching him multiple times I realized I was completely wrong about him. His hustle and hard work showed that he had what it took to be a big time impact player. Words cannot describe what a trajedy this "could" be for the projected #1 overall pick and I hope he has a quick, successful, recovery.
Yeah he's very humble and always puts the team first...he's easily grown to become my favorite player in College ball this year...
Do you think he enters or comes back?
His family needs money BAD, and he's still guaranteed top 3. Guys don't do well when they come back look at Terrence Jones
I had no idea his family needed money, I guess that answers my question. But coming back isn't always bad. it's only bad for the guys who weren't going to pan out anyway.
His family doesn't need money bad guys so idk where people get their info from. Both his brothers play college football with the one from NC State projected as 2nd round pick in this years and the other brother at Boston College will be drafted within the first 3 rounds in next years draft. His family owns businesses so needing money badly is an understatement. So IMO he returns next year. He's a humble kid not worried about the money just wants to better himself.
This is what he said on twitter btw
"Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback! I love you all and can't thank y'all enough for the prayers."
Really like his response
I'm a huge UK fan and I know that's not entirely popular around here. I have followed Kentucky basketball religiously my whole life and when I saw how serious Nerlens injury was today I admit I cried for an hour. This team depended on Nerlens so much, he erased their freshmen mistakes on the defensive end, he was improving his free throws, and he was just starting to become the leader they needed. Needless to say I'm incredibly sad but that's not what matter, what matters is that this young man gets back to full health #PrayersForNerlens
I know I'll get killed for this but I don't really see much of a difference between Larry Sanders and Noel besides the name on the front of their college jerseys. They're around the same size and Sanders is averaging a little over 8pts 8 rebs and 3blks. I don't see Noel doing much more than that for his first two years in the league even if he does come back healthy.
man crying for Noel's injury?really lol?
If Noels doesn't come back I bet there goes half on some teams Draft Pick. Whos next for the skills Noels has Mason Plumlee
