Nerlens Noel Primed for a MAJOR Comeback


Nerlens Noel already seems focused and ready to work hard to get back to where he was before last night’s ACL injury.

John Calipari spoke to him this morning and he believes he will come back better than ever.

Also, CBS Sports believes his is still a top 5 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft:

It’s sad news for a player who played hard on virtually every possession — and had become the heart and soul of this Kentucky team. Multiple NBA sources told that the injury could drop Noel a couple of spots in the draft, but that he’ll likely fall no lower than fifth — and could still be selected with the No. 1 pick.

“Look at what Adrian Peterson did this year,” one NBA executive said. “ACL’s are so common these days.”

I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.
