His words (76ers coach Brett Brown) were almost as bold as his center’s (Nerlens Noel) play of late. Following Wednesday’s 99-85 win at Denver, 76ers coach Brett Brown emphatically stated: “People have to really start talking about him for rookie of the year. You don’t just repetitively bang out these types of performances and produce the numbers that he is producing. He is a complete game changer. He is a complete defensive presence when he’s lurking to block shots. He just continues to improve at this time of year. He keeps moving up the food chain and heading in the direction that we’re all so thrilled about.”

Nerlens Noel’s progression certainly wasn’t projected by anyone to be this quick. He has become a defensive monster in the lane.
