My Beef With Nerlens Noel

Its safe to say I have mixed feelings about our number 1 pick overall this year. I want Otto Porter really bad but he is not the number one prospect. Nerlens Noel is and this scares me for a lot of reasons. The biggest reason is his injury. We all know that Acl injuries are no joke. It can keep you from playing indefinitely. We all seen that in Derrick Rose. And please stop saying "well maybe he can pull an Adrian Peterson". Because for one football is totally different then basketball. For two Adrian Peterson is a freak of nature in every aspect. I honestly don't think he's human. And three I dont think anybody in sports has the work ethic that he does. I mean I've followed that man since his Oklahoma days before he got drafted by my fave team. Hes just incredible. And I'm not saying Noel isn't working hard to get back. But if he does get back say Christmas day like he projects, He definately will not be much of an impact player as we would need him to be. If your a number 1 pick overall you need to be able to make a big impact right away in any sport. Noel can't. Look at Greg Oden when he got drafted first overall. He ended up missing his whole rookie year and then never lived up to his potential. The same could go for Noel. Its to risky for me. Not to mention his offensive game is not much of anything and he won't be able to block shots in the NBA like he did in college. It just isn't going to happen. So for me I'd rather draft Otto Porter. If not that then trade it.
