Nerlens Noel is leading fastbreaks, throwing behind-the-back passes now (video)


I was excited for Nerlens Noel to make his NBA debut so he could do things like block James Harden’s shot at the rim. I wasn’t expecting the 76ers forward to push the ball and deliver behind-the-back passes, but I’m sure not complaining.

Noel later left the game with a sprained ankle, but he said after the game “it wasn’t that bad.”
