Nerlens Noel today was talking with another man of great hair (Kyle Tucker of the Courier Journal) and said that while he wasn’t worried about any potential slippage on draft night, he did have some news that Kentucky fans would enjoy. Nerlens says he “has a surprise for Big Blue Nation on Draft night,” although he declined to give any further info on what it would be. Now the last time a big announcement occurred for Nerlens, he of course shocked everyone by coming with a UK logo shaved into the back of his hair. So what happens Thursday at the Draft? How does he repay the fans that he called on my radio show on Friday, “the best that I could have ever imagined” in the Bluegrass state?
We will find out then, but for now, any guesses?
