ESPN gives Nerlens Noel the All-Access treatment

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 8 years


The NBA Draft is a little over a month away, and the NBA Draft Lottery is tomorrow night, which means we'll find out which team is lucky enough to win Nerlens Noel's services. Nerlens is the consensus projected number one pick, and spent the end of last week at the Draft Combine interviewing with teams and the media. ESPN went one step further, profiling Nerlens for their All-Access series. Check it out above. Here are my highlights: -- The camera crews follow Nerlens through some of his rehab exercises, which include balancing on a bosu ball, riding a stationary bike, and using various weight machines. -- We get the first glimpse of Nerlens' bright pink scar, and yes, I shuddered. -- The best part is when Stephania Bell and Nerlens walk into a gym, which is apparently the first time Nerlens has been back on the court to work out since his injury. Now, this very well could have been set up by ESPN, but Nerlens' emotions in the moment seem genuine. Good luck, big guy.
