Im not saying he will automatically plummet now but injuries(definitely knees) are a bad thing in the nba. Bigs with injury issues rarely pan out(see Oden) so if Noel falls(to like the third or fourth big taken as opposed to the first) it wouldn't shock me.


But hes not. X-ray were said to be negative and should be ready in 8months. If he do fall, it's not going to be all the way to 14. Maybe 5-7.

Noel's ACL injury makes him a no-go for me. I was iffy on him already. No need to take chance on him now

Depending on how the season pans out, certain players perform and team needs its possible he could fall to 14(highly unlikely sure).
I don't have an issue with his injury but that doesn't mean nba gms won't. If he did fall and we got him at 14 time to celebrate. It would be like Star falling to the panthers, not going to happen but if it does awesome.

Well if 12 other gms passes him up then why should we even bother to take him at 14? It he fall that far, it' gotta be a major problem.

5 year plan remember?

Seriously though it won't happen but if it does you take him. Injury or not you take him at 14 and hope he gets healthy.

With Len and Zeller being really good in their own right he could be the third big taken instead of the first. Grand scheme not a huge drop but still a drop.

Baron Davis tore his ACL in 1999 and the Hornets drafted him 3rd overall anyway, he turned out just fine. Just cautioning you on running away from a dude bc of one injury.

I was never on his bandwagon to begin with so I have nothing to run away from. His injury just further cements the fact that I don't want him.

he'll probably drop a little bit, but some team will be glad to take a chance on him at 6 or 7.

Are people on McLemore's bandwagon because of YouTube dunk highlights and the fact he's a guard?

Also his tremendous athleticism, silky smooth shot, ability to hit those long range bombs with consistency, defensive potential, etc.

also, he's already ready for the NBA, prototypical size with great wingspan, and no character issues.
and he's the perfect complement to Kemba, who will finally have a shooter to pass to when he drives.
