    Default Nerlens Noel will be ready to play....

    ....in about 12 months.

    Sorry, couldn't resist....


    I know we've got a thread for this, but this is pretty big news for a top-10 pick to sit out an entire season. At least Blake Griffin played some preseason. Noel never even got close.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    After seeing how Chicago handled Rose, they are going all in on the Wiggins Sweepstakes.

    No reason to force him coming back in the middle of the season if they are tanking.

    They're in full tank mode right now. Not surprising really.

    Although it would be better if he plays at some point this season just for development.

    This is kind of silly. They're a cellar dweller even with him healthy (even healthy for the whole year).

    The more minutes he plays the better tank job it would be. He is just not ready for the NBA, injury or no injury, IMO.
