We UK fans agree, Nerlens Noel is the number one choice in the NBA draft this year. With all the achievements and news regarding Noel, SNY seems to agree as well. They interviewed 2 veteran NBA scouts and they pointed out what makes Noel the best pick for the June draft, which included players like Indiana’s Cody Zeller, UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad, among others.
“Nerlens has been separating himself from the pack,” one scout said. “He has taken his shot-blocking to another level. He’s the best interior defender in the game.”
“Noel [is] No. 1,” a second NBA scout told SNY.tv. “He is getting better each week offensively and we already know he dominates the game at the defensive end.”
If Noel projections turn out right, he will follow Anthony Davis’ footsteps as a UK freshman to be the #1 draft pick, second year straight for Kentucky.
