by Stefan Abramian | Posted on Monday, July 15th, 2013

The day before draft day everyone had a feeling Nerlens Noel a power forward/center for the University of Kentucky would be a for-sure number one pick in the draft.

When draft day came Noel actually got drafted 6th overall where he was taken by the New Orleans Pelicans before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

According to Around The Horn on Twitter “@NerlensNoel3, per his family, wants to wear No. 5 in Philadelphia in honor of the teams that passed on him”. (via Twitter)
