  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Yeah that's above my pay-grade. On the advanced stats page of Basketball Reference they list the league leaders in each category. On the defensive side of the ball, he's ranked 5th in the entire league in multiple categories (Defensive Win...

    On NBA TV they were showing highlights from last nights game and after mentioning Noel's numbers the host asked if he was close to catching Wiggins for ROY. Dennis Scott is one of the "analysts" on the show and said...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Tough loss. Only down 8 at the half, got overwhelmed in the 3rd Q. If Nerlens keeps putting up numbers like this, he might actually remind Dollar Bill of someone good. Or remind Brian that Depression can be treated. 30-pts,...

    Matt Moore, the national NBA writer for CBS Sports lives in Denver and was at the Sixers/Nuggets game the other night. He commented on this very thing. The Sixers length and willingness to play aggressive defense is a real problem...

    Ridiculous because you wear shoes with Velcro? So no laces anyway? Smart....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    You ok, buddy? Do we need to take your shoelaces away?...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Good question.... I Like Horford but a healthy Embiid is bigger/better than Al. But that's the gamble isn't it? Horford has already missed two full seasons due to injury, so with that in mind, I'll go all in on Embiid...

    Good article from Grantland about Noel's ridiculous defense and his Rookie of the Year consideration. Really good read, also addresses his offensive struggles early in the season and his recent improvement in that area as well. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/nerlens-noel-the-other-rookie-of-the-year/...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    My guess is that with his recently increased work, he's experiencing some swelling as a result and that its just hopefully part of the normal process. He's getting checked out by his original doctor in LA today. Fingers crossed....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Funny thing is, people are saying that Sixers are faking the injury to get people off their backs who think Embiid should play this year. Hahaha let's hope that's the case....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    *Edit Moore just updated that he's being told Embiid had "minor" setback with his right foot. UGGGGGGHHHHHHHH...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Some twitter chatter that Embiid was in a walking boot on Sunday for "protective" reasons. Beat reporter Tom Moore reported that it's "not a setback." Until there is any real information from Brown or the team, however it's still a...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Yep, 17 boards last night...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    To be fair his hands on offense have vastly improved sinc the beginning of the year. He's so much more confident out there, you can just see it. I'm sure some of it is just getting over any lingering doubts...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    I know everyone hates when I post positive Noel stats so here's some more! (Advanced stats) He's 2nd in the league in Defensive Box +/- He's 4th in the league in Rim Protection He's 8th in the league in Defensive...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Interesting...He's a guy I wanted Sixers to draft...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Good. Hope he plays. Would be nice to have more than one floor-spacer out there tonight. Fun to see Canaan hitting all of those 3's the other night....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Oh for sure. I'm not implying Noel is anything like Hakeem (or Scot Pollard for that matter). I thought the fact that he's the youngest player ever to hit these numbers was the interesting part. Btw, I didn't do any...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    It's a list chock-full of Hall of Famers or potential Hall of Famers and you cherry-pick the two "poor" names from the list. Kudos. Ok, I'll play too! Hakeem Olajuwon! David Robinson! Patrick Ewing! Woo hoo! Nerlens is headed for...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Ooooh my little pretty one...pretty one Ooooh my little pretty one...MY SHARONE-AAAA Sorry...I'm snowed-in like Edward....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Be as snarky as you want, but if you can't see the improvement in Noel's game as this season has progressed, along with his defensive impact, you're just not trying at all....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    @preston76: Nerlens Noel becomes youngest player to record at least 13 rbs, 5 blocks, 4 steals in a game (via @bball_ref) http://t.co/dzFt5zKOCm...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Would be something to consider to be sure (which is what I'm assuming Hinkie was doing at the deadline), but I don't know if I'd trade Embiid for either of those three players. Clearly health is the #1 issue at...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    I have been a fan of most of what the Sixers have done over the past year and a half. That said, if they traded Embiid I would certainly be disheartened. I don't think for a minute that they shopped...

    Noel nominated for Rookie of the Month award: http://www.nba.com/sixers/video/channels/award_nominees/2015/03/02/20150301-kia-nominee-noel.nba/...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    I don't have any real salary-cap knowledge (or any other knowledge for that matter, haha) but didn't they sign McGee just so they could get to the salary floor this season? He certainly doesn't seem like the type to play...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    HAHAHA it's clear you don't like the way Hinkie's running this team but if you're using an "article" by ANGELO CATALDI to further your cause then we're probably done here....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Isn't this team a season and a half into the rebuild?...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    So Jrue, an unfortunately oft-injured PG, (which is a position, according to you, that is most easily replaceable in the NBA) is more valuable now and forever than Noel and Saric? Ok....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Thing is, I didn't cite yesterday's game. I never even mentioned Noel. Brian randomly brought up him only having 3 rebounds in response to my post about Canaan. Vuc was great the other night....
