by July 11, 2013


After shockingly falling to the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Nerlens Noel vowed to get vengeance on the five teams that passed him over. At the very least, Noel will have a daily reminder of the snubs on his Philadelphia Sixers jersey. Per ESPN: “… @NerlensNoel3, per his family, wants to wear No. 5 in Philadelphia in honor of the teams that passed on him.”
