Nerlens Noel’s Wednesday Radio Tour


Nerlens Noel stopped by two of the most-listened-to radio shows in all of America this morning when he ran the Dan Patrick-Kentucky Sports Radio interview gauntlet on Wednesday.

Noel first joined Dan Patrick on The Dan Patrick Show, where he told DP that he’s well ahead of schedule five weeks into rehab on that injured knee. Noel said he expects to back to 100% “pretty quick”:

And on KSR, Matt told Nerlens what to expect at Hillbilly Days after the two reflected on Noel’s short-lived career at Kentucky and his future in the NBA:

    What was up with Matt on the show today saying Noel’s handler was on the coaching staff this season, but will now follow him to the NBA. Is that legal? I guess it it is.

    THe young man will be treated with the utmost BBN respect, as have all the past players. East KY WILDCAT fans are among the best and most dedicated in the state. we love out CATS!!!!

    Hey we may even be nice to a Duke grad (a.k.a. Matt Jones). Well on second thought, NOT.

    I appreciate that Noel brought it everytime he stepped on the Floor as a Cat. As Matt Discussed at the end, even more impressive is the work he did behind the scenes with kids and people in central Kentucky less fortunate than himself . BBN should be proud of Nerlens as both a player and as a person. Good Luck Nerlens!
