Throwback Thursday: Nerlens Noel drove a dump truck in E-Town

A caller on this morning’s radio show (female, of course) called in to tell a story about her UK dump truck and how she took it to an event in Elizabethtown last year to get it signed by Nerlens Noel and Darius Miller. She said she patiently waited for the event to end so the guys could walk outside and sign her truck, and when they did, Nerlens hopped inside and took it for a spin.

Nerlens posted a picture of his new whip about a year ago — I don’t know how we missed this — and we hope to have video of him driving it around on the site later today.

He really is the best.

    Es un gran camión pero parece pequeña cuando lo maneja. Me encanta el baloncesto y los gatos monteses. Si puedes leer esto te odio.

      I believe #2 El Lechero states the contrary.

    I agree he is the best and makes us proud. I believe Karl-Anthony Towns will follow in Nerlens’ footsteps. He’s already out there doing amazing things. #BBNforever

    I thought the caller said that Nerlen’s agent told him he couldn’t drive because of his knee…and Darius Miller was the one who drove it?? right?
