Nerlens Noel wrecks knee vs Florida



LINK
Prayers for him and his family.
I know this is way too soon to speculate, but lets say he falls to us because of this injury, do we take him?

If he enrolls in the Adrian Peterson school of recovery, I'm all in.

On a more serious note, I hate seeing this happen to anyone. Praying for a quick recovery.

Sucks for him and hope he makes a speedy recovery. I wonder how this will affect his draft stock. Maybe his chances of falling to us will increase after this.

Hate to see that. Hope he'll be ok and its not a Shaun Livingston situation.

As for the Pelicans, I don't think we would've paired him with AD regardless. It may bump other targets for us up, ahead of where we'll end up picking.

Bad knees didnt stop people from drafting Greg Oden and Yao Ming #1 overall

They had "red flags" though. They weren't coming off of knees that crumbled.

Yao's short career still lapped everybody else in that lottery except Nene and Amare. Stunning amount of busts that year.

Jesus titty-fricking Christ, that is just painful to look at.


I'm wondering if he thinks he's better off returning to UK for a year and showing off that his knee is better or if he wants to cash in while he can, in case he's fricked.

Because it's the NBA. And you take the BPA when it's your turn in the draft.

I don't think anyone expected breaks, but his ligaments are going to look rough, I'm afraid.

Worst part is, if it's a single ligament they usually can put weight on it. When they can't put weight on it, it's more than one.

I think the random people's cluelessness in the crowd make his injury seem even worse...it's like "don't you people even care?!??!"

I don't know, maybe it's just me.

Thats tragic to hear. Always hate to see that happen to anyone. Hope he heals properly and comes back stronger than ever. Can't see him not returning to UK for his Sophomore season.
