After a solid rookie campaign in which he was the only player in the League to finish with over 100 blocks and over 100 steals, Nerlens Noel has some high aspirations for his second season. Among them, is to become an All-Star. The Sixers have been without an All-Star since Jrue Holiday made the team back in 2013, and Noel wants to end that streak.
“Year two, I want to be an All-Star, clear as that,” he recently told SLAM magazine; a sentiment he has often echoed in the past. “I know a lot of players say that,” Noel told me back in April, “but for me I feel as though that it the next step.”
