“I need to be on the court playing basketball. I think I’m too good to be playing 8 minutes. That’s crazy. That’s crazy,” Sixer Nerlens Noel said after last night’s loss to the Lakers.

“(They) need to figure this shit out.”

Noel went on to place most of the blame for the situation on the Sixers front office.

“I think there’s too much on the coach’s plate,” Noel said. “(But) the guys that run the operations, they do what they do.”

When asked how he wanted the situation resolved, Noel didn’t have a preferred solution. He just wants to play.

“I just want to be on the court playing basketball. I don’t really care who I’m playing with,” Noel said. “Ideally, I’d just like to be playing basketball. Just doing my thing, care free.”
