Nerlens Noel suspended for the rest of the season

Nerlens Noel has been suspended for violating the NBA’s Anti-Drug program, according to Shams Charania. The former Kentucky center will sit out five games, or the remainder of the Dallas Mavericks’ regular season.

It’s been a rough season for Nerlens, who is averaging 4.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Since he’ll be an unrestricted free agent following this season, it’s probably safe to say he’s played his last game as a Maverick.

    That’s not the story here….THIS is: “His agent tweeted last August that Noel turned down a four-year, $70 million deal from the Mavs”

    WOW…I’m actually ashamed that he ever played for UK, if he’s that stupid.

      So, in one post you want them to stay at UK, and in another, you shame them for turning down money.

      LOL. Okay.

      He hates the MAVS that much. It isn’t that he is stupid and was probably tempted to take the money. However, when he turned it down the MAVS did everything but black list him. Noel is one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the league, and hopefully he will find the team that will allow him to play as the main PF on the team or a small ball C. 76ers did nothing but draft big men while he was there and the MAVS are toxic a team as there is.

    Nerlens seems distracted from his basketball career. He’s not as focused or as dedicated as most the other bbnba

    Nerlens is a thug and not one of the alums from the Calipari era we should praise with love and accolades. He destroyed his apartment in Philly and has been a problem child with the Mavs. He’s not Booker, Towns, Wall, Knight, or so many others that have played at a high level and with class.

      I think it was a house and the damage was quite extensive. 30k/60k.
