Nerlens Noel Calls Ish Smith the First “Real Point Guard” He’s Played With

Nerlens Noel is beginning to come into his own as an NBA player, potential Rookie of the Year, and defensive power. Much was made about Noel’s longtime friendship and relationship with former Sixer Michael Carter-Williams, but Noel really stepped his game up since MCW became a Buck. And he’s meshing really well with current starting point guard Ish Smith. In fact, 20.3% of Ish Smith’s passes as a Sixer have been to Nerlens Noel, and Noel shoots 71.2% on shots taken after those passes. So it makes sense that Nerlens is excited. But this still has to hurt:

Sorry MCW, Tony Wroten, Isaiah Canaan, Tim Frazier, Larry Drew, and part-time Alexey Shved and JaKarr Sampson.

  1. At least he’s being honest.

    2015/16 Sixers starting line-up:

    Pg – D’angelo Russell
    Sg – Rj Hunter
    Sf – Robert Covington
    Pf – Nerlens Noel
    C – Joel Embiid

  2. Hey Kyle. How can I be down? What if i put this on Jim on the daily. Would you throw bands at me? I mean, this smokin’ wet habit don’t pay for itself!

  3. But basketball is still basketball and MCW is still a better player than ish. He has more tangibles and athletism than ish and size will Always matter in ball. They should of never traded MCW at least not yet for what they got.

    1. MCW doesnt even rank in top 30 of NBA pgs. He cant shoot, hardly can pass and just is not a pg. Thank god the Sixers realized this before they went another year with him and might have missed out on either Russell or Mudiay.

  4. Hey everybody, I am the new Crossing Broad Inturn reporting, for my first day, at work.

    I got here at — 9–, right on time. But I noticed nobody else is here. I figured I am going to have to stay late. Jim Adair sent me a e-mail last night reminding me of detention to detail.

    1. Welcome aboard young fellow! You will soon fund out there isnt much to this job other than “google search”, “copy”, “paste”!!

      1. Jim e-mailed me last night, and they said we need to expand our research base. So he wants me to use Ding by macrosoft and Dawgpile.

        He always reminded me to all ways use spill czech.

  5. Noel should start making his free throws before he implicitly criticizes the play of his current/former teammates.

    Actually watched that mess of a game against the Lakers last night. Watching paint dry comes to mind, but that would have involved far fewer turnovers and clanked free throws.

    It’s like half of the Sixers lineup went to the Shaquille O’Neal school of free throw shooting.

    Together we clank.

    1. Paint dry?

      HaHaHa. Good one, dad! Can I call you dad?

      what are you doing for Easter, dad? Mom and I would love to see you. Will you at least call?
