Sixers.com writer, Max Rappaport was able to talk to Noel about his time at the camp and his goals for next season. Here are some quotes that continue to show how great of a person Nerlens is.
“I definitely feel it was a culture shock. You know, especially going back to Haiti like I have last summer and seeing the conditions there, I think it was very similar. You know, just seeing all the progression they’re making in the Philippines, with their economy going up and all the new developments they’re making, it’s definitely great to see.” “I think it’s very important. Especially to use my status to give the right message to these young kids, because they’re the next generation. And you always want them to see the positives in things and tell the next generation of kids when they’re older that they’ve got to set the path right and instill a hard work ethic in them so that they can be on the right path to success.”
