Could Nerlens Noel’s injury shake up the NBA draft?

By Kurt Helin Feb 13, 2013, 10:11 AM EST



That is ugly. And scary.

And that is Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky center that DraftExpress and many other sites have as the No. 1 pick in the next NBA Draft.

Did that chase-down block above just change the complexion of the 2013 NBA draft?

It depends on the extent of the injury, Jonathan Givony of the go-to NBA draft site DraftExpress.com told PBT in an email. If he is expected to make a full recovery it likely does not impact his status at all, Givony said. If he’s not, all bets are off, but nobody wants to think about the young player not getting all the way back.

Remember, NBA teams are not drafting the player as you see him, they are drafting the player they think they will get in three to five years. I hate the overuse of the word “upside” during a draft as much as anyone, but that matters to an NBA team — they want a guy who can contribute at a high level in a few years. NBA teams are in the business of projecting player growth.

If Tim didn't have the VI/Punisher Brace protecting his knee against Martell Webster...that is what our season would have been.

Good Luck NOEL!

Amen to that.

Terrible injury, and serves to reinforce THE BIGGE$T REASON why the majority of NCAA talent is one-and-done...

....that said, I'm still stuck on the fact that kid's first name is Nerlens. Seriously? Nerlens?
