It's the NBA draft. Most of these top picks are based on potential.
And you people talking about how skinny he is are crazy. You're not drafting an NBA all star in the middle of their career. You're getting a kid who is a year out of high school.
Just the little I've seen of him reminds me of Dwight Howard. Tall rangy kid who is very athletic and plays defense with a limited offensive game. (Although Howard weighed more and was shorter coming out of high school)
And these conversations remind me of the Howard vs Okafor debate.

I think Noel is the real deal. I am not for tanking the 2013 season as it's getting old sitting in the arena and losing but if Noel were to fall into our laps on draft night, I'd be thrilled and willing to be patient for 1 more year.
