NBA Draft 2013: Sixers Draftees Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams are Best Friends

New, comments

And best friends are the best.

USA TODAY Sports

Sam Hinkie's first draft (or first anything, really) as the Sixers General Manager is going swimmingly. He is dominating the draft, and that's before he's about to buy a late first and take another high upside contributor. Thus far, they've ended up with the injured, slipping Nerlens Noel and the analytics-friendly Michael Carter-Williams, not to mention a minimally protected first round pick in next year's loaded draft.

What could be better? How about some sunshine and butterflies?

Carter-Williams also revealed that when he and Nerlens Noel take the court for the Sixers this upcoming season, it’ll be a reunion of sorts for the pair.

"Me and Nerlens grew up together. We’re best friends We plated on the same AAU team together in high school. It’s like a dream come true. We always talked about how we were both going to make it to the NBA. For us to make it on the same team is a blessing."

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I will now be dreaming about pushing the tempo, running tons of fast breaks, and watching MCW throw dynamic alley-oops to his flat-topped BFFAEAEAEAE Nerlens Noel.

This is the Sam Hinkie era. Calculators. Tanking. Best friends.
