With the 6th pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, the New Orleans Pelicans selected Nerlens Noel from the University of Kentucky.

I can't type very coherently right now -- suffice it to say he was the #1 overall player on my board, our community board, and our big board. Before his injury in January, Noel posted one of the most insane statistical lines in recent memory and projects to be an outstanding defensive prospect. According to all reports, his short and long term health is projected to be strong.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
