Why I don't want Noel.

Recommended Posts



Keep in mind when talking about Noel's nody that he reclassified as a Senior in high school when he was a junior. Dude should be going into his freshman year in college.

Also don't get so caught up in weight. That is misleading. I played basketball in college. Our strongest guy in the weight room was also the skinniest. I outweighed him by nearly 50 pounds and he could bench more than I could.

I agree that offensive polish is a concern and I am more concerned with his health than his skill set.

If he stays healthy he will be very good in the NBA especially on defense.

He will be Theo Ratlif. If that's good enough for everybody then let's pick him then.

during last season I wanted Noel because I felt like he was the most assured thing- at the least a good defender and rebounder. Now out of the top six guys: Oladipo, Len, McLemore, Porter, Bennet, and Noel.....I feel like Noel might be the least assured due to his tiny frame and knee problem.

 

I'll be fine with whoever we draft (except for Porter and Noel). I honestly don't think this year's piece is going to change our team at all, and thus it doesn't really matter to me who we get.

a) bench press doesn't translate to basketball all that well. see Kevin Durant

 

b) how long were his arms and how long were yours

 

c)in his prime, Shaq was tossing around other centers like rag-dolls because he was so much more  physical than them.

I was using bench press as an example. He was wirey but very strong.

Noel is an athletic freak at 6'11. IF he fully recovers which is a big question mark.

Don't get me wrong I would rather have a guy with more polish like Len. I personally am a little tired of drafting guys that will need to develop offensively.

But let's not act like Noel is just some ho hum dime a dozen type prospect.

A lot of the players people talk about coming into college that make them think next year's draft will be so loaded. Well Noel was rated higher than all of them except Wiggins in high school. That is for a reason.

Having said that I would like to see us get Len or McLemore or Oladipo over Noel. I am still a little worried about Bennett and his size as a PF.

Just trade the damn pick for Bosh.

 

I second that. McLemore is my guy in this draft. Chances are that we're not going to land him anyway. If the rumors about us wanting a "BIG" are true, I would rather go the Bosh route. Len, Noel, Zeller, and Bennett are all intriguing, but all comes with some many question marks. Bosh is clearly a better player than what he showed in the playoffs/finals.

I don't want him based on the fact that he isn't a scorer and may not even play next year.
