It's doubtful that Nerlens Noel—Philly's first round pick from this year's draft and the one-time presumed #1 overall pick—will play at all this year, according to Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown.

Brown made the comment before the Sixers' preseason game in Cleveland tonight. Noel tore the ACL back in February. And while some morons have tried to argue that injuring himself was actually for the better, it's already cost him millions. Now, it looks like he's missing an entire season—whether it's because of serious complications or Philadelphia's unabashed tanking effort.
