Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Nerlens Noel and 2013 NBA Draft

The NBA draft is only 5 days away and that means that we are that much close to seeing which team will draft Nerlens Noel.  Most of the experts think that Noel will land at the #1 spot in the draft.  However, some still think he is a top 5 pick.  Honestly, it would be a bit surprising if Noel didn’t go #1 solely based on his improvement from the beginning and end of the 2012-13 season.

The game at Auburn showed just how tough Noel is.  With the game on the line and Noel carrying 4 fouls, he could’ve easily given up and the Cats would’ve lost the game.  Instead, Noel went on and had a block party and blocked almost anything that came his way.

Noel’s will to win is very impressive and so is his potential.  I think those two thinks will land him high in the 2013 NBA draft.  However, we will have to wait to see where Noel will go.  The NBA draft will be televised on ESPN on June 27th at 7pm.
