Quick first step allows him to drive past slower bigs
Handling contact inside
Free throw shooting
Very raw offensivly
Developing a well-rounded back to the basket game
Summary: Noel draws a lot of comparisons to Anthony Davis, and while they are both lengthy, athletic, and can protect the rim, Noel doesn't possess near the offensive capabilites that Davis did. Based on the fact that he should still be a senior in high school and has tremendous potential, Noel will still be one of the top picks in the 2013 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: Joakim Noah.
Noah is not a physical force inside, but uses his shot-blocking ability and activity inside to be very effective. Noel is the same type of player right now, and both guys are fairly limited on the offensive end with ugly looking jump shots.
Rockies and Diamondbacks fail yesterday, at least the Astros and Nats came through. For today: Closing two pars with Red Sox-178 in one and Nats -+169 in the other. In another ongoing par going in the second tier spot of a four team par will be the Astros -205. Start up par with the Dodgers -163, (Kershaw), two open. Still thinking about the Yankees in a start up. GLTA today.
@Bear Down He didn't do a horrible job even if Mitch doesn't pan out, I do believe Shaheen is going to be a monster TE for the Bears for quite a while. However Adams wouldve raised the level of the defense but Demps is a decent player and a veteran which might be just what this young secondary needs.
