Nerlens opens up about his return to the court

We’re big Nerlens Noel fans around these parts, and everyone is eagerly anticipating his return to the court next season. CoachUp posted this great video of Nerlens’ journey back from injury a few days ago, and it’s worth three minutes of your time. The crew followed Nerlens back to his hometown of Everett, Massachusetts, where he got his flat top touched up and chatted with some hometown kids, a few of which sported flat tops themselves.

It also includes some footage of Nerlens working out with his private coach, Mike Catapano. It might be an empty gym, but Nerlens looks like he’s getting back to top form. Keep it up, flat top feller.

    Fifteen to twenty pounds from playing the 5; still more retooling of his game away from the basket from playing the 4. Right now he’s AD’s defense with Ben Wallace’s offense: dunks and putbacks. I think eventually he’ll be very special, but he’s still a year away from truly arriving.

      Thank you for the tremendous insights. No one knows Nerlens, or basketball, better. You are the wisest person who ever commented.

      That’s what you want to hear, isn’t it, Mr. Know-It-All? I believe all of us here were of the opinion that Nerlens would “truly arrive” in his first year in the league, following reconstructive knee surgery. Thanks for setting us straight.

    Because of the team he was on (and the eventual injury), I don’ know if we’ll ever fully appreciate how good Nerlens really was. I always think back to Cal talking about the “extra gear” he had at the end of practices that no one else had. Dude will be special in the league for a lot of years.
