Lost in the wake of all the Eagles free agency news this weekend was the fact that the 76ers went produced a 1-1 record in their last two games (Win over the depleted Atlanta Hawks) and rookie Nerlens Noel who has played extremely well since the All-Star break, simply took his game to another level this past weekend.
Since the All-Star break, Noel has played his best basketball of the season. Since the festivities in New York City wrapped up, #4 is averaging 11.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 2.9 blocks, and 2.7 steals per game.
Over the weekend, Noel averaged 10.5 ppg., 14 rpg. and 5.5 spg.

After the jump, we’ll present a several of those references and let you decide what, if anything, these numbers exactly mean for Noel and the 76ers.
