Sixer rookie Nerlens Noel had 4 points and 4 rebounds, but his performance at last night’s Rising Stars game during NBA All-Star weekend will always lead with this thunderous block by Rudy Gobert!
And here is ESPN.com’s analysis of Noel’s performance.
Stats: 4 PTS (2-5) | 4 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK
In a game with little to no defense, Noel, at least, played some. The mere threat of him protecting the paint caused some of the World players to have second thoughts. Noel is a long, wing-spanned project the Sixers are happy to have.
