Nerlens Noel given good odds for NBA Rookie of the Year

Look, we all know that the Sixers will be great some day. There are those who are confused as to how a GM isn't able to perform a complete franchise turnaround in 13 months, but those people will probably go back to complaining about the Phillies soon, anyway.

Look, we all know that the Sixers will be great some day. There are those who are confused as to how a GM isn't able to perform a complete franchise turnaround in 13 months, but those people will probably go back to complaining about the Phillies soon, anyway.

Little hints of their future greatness are nice, though. For instance, Michael Carter-Williams winning Rookie of the Year. That was nice. Now, his teammate, Nerlens Noel, sidelined by injury last season, has been handed pretty solid odds by Bovado to win ROY himself.

Currently, Noel sits at 10/1 odds to take home the award, behind only Andrew Wiggins (6/1), Jabari Parker (4/1) and just behind Julius Randle (9/1).
