You don't make it to the NBA without being a strong competitor, and Nerlens Noel taught some kids that lesson at a recent youth basketball camp.
Noel is playing a game of one on one with player half his size when he challenges him to guard him and the asks, "Which way do you want me to go?" before blowing by the child with such ferocity that he falls to the ground, while the seven footer finishes at the rim with authority.
While the sequence may have appeared merciless, the camper is all smiles when he gets up from the floor, because what kid would not love to get posterized by an NBA player.
