Nerlens Noel would make a great contribution to the Cavaliers. Despite his injury early on at Kentucky, his rehab seems to be going well and when the time comes for him to step onto Cleveland's Court, I believe he'll come out on top. With a strong back court consisting of Kyrie and Dion, why not draft a guy who can be dominant on the defensive end?
Being a Kentucky Wildcats fan myself for a number of years, I got the chance to travel and see Nerlens play at Notre Dame and was very impressed by his shot blocking and rebound ability being the big man he is (averaging 9.5 rebounds and 4.4 blocks a game). He is willing to get up and down the court quickly with his speed as well. Coming into the NBA, I believe Nerlens has a lot of potential to be a great assest to Cleveland.
Seeing Nerlens get to play on my favorite college team was one thing, but to see him in a Cavs jersey playing in Cleveland would top it all off!
