He's supposed to make his debut april 4th but personally he should wait till next season there's no point in rushing when the 76ers aren't going anywhere. An how good do you think he can be?
He can still be rookie of the year.
Sixers already said this week he wasn't going to be playing this year.
I doubt he plays, but if he is healthy enough, I don't see the big deal. The doctors will not clear him unless he's 100% healthy. I think it'll be good for him to get the first games jitters out of the way now. Also, would be good for the Sixers to get a good feel for his better nba position. Can he play the 4 alongside Embiid? This could help "a bit" in helping decide where to go with their draft picks.
Do you think he can be the best in the 2013 class. It was crime he was picked 6th, he was not the sixth best player in the draft
This year he can change nothing for 76ers... so, if he can really play, may be a good think make him know something about nba areas...
I still think he'll be the best player from the 2013 draft. Everyone thought he would go #1 before the draft and he slid to 6 to everyones surprise. I think he'll be Anthony Davis's equal on the defensive end, and a good finisher on pick and rolls despite otherwise limited offense.
However I think he'll really struggle next season he comes back from injury and learns the NBA game. Probably rack up a lot of fouls, get banged around by bigger vets and struggle for confidence. Give him a couple of years though...
He's been healthy enough to play since Christmas - but it doesn't fit with what they are trying to do this year. So he's bored to death lifting weights and shooting 1 hand jumpers. Patience Daniel-Son - summer league is around the corner where you'll be joined by 3-4 other newbies
Noel has only just started doing four on four halfcourt sets so I don't tink he has been ready to play for a while. I fully agree that he only plays when he is 100% but if he can get a few games under his belt in April then it doesn't do any harm and allows him to get a feel of the NBA on court.
His key will be rehab 100%, maybe play summer league, full preseason and then ready to go fully day 1 of 2014/15 season.
