The NBA go behind-the-scenes to talk to Noel ahead of Draft.
With the NBA Draft 2013 rapidly approaching, the NBA take a closer look at a potential top overall pick and speak to Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel.
The 19-year-old feared the worst earlier this year after having to undergo an operation to repair his knee after suffering a devastating ACL injury back in February.
However, he has since received the all-clear and has visited various franchises ahead of the Draft, with some still suggesting he will go first.
Although he has visited both the Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic, it is widely expected that he will go to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the No.1 pick.
The Cavs require an intimidating figure in the post and Noel’s skills as a shot blocker could help them improve as he takes his place alongside the likes of Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.
Watch the video below to find out how Noel responded to the adversity of the injury and his hopes for the future:
