Nerlens Noel is a cool dude because he has a high top fade that rivals Big Daddy Kane and would make Kid from Kid N Play proud. Nerlens Noel is nice because of his dunks and athletic game.  Nerlens Noels is GOOD because of stories like this.

The future #1 pick made an appearance at the Kentucky Derby this weekend and brought a special guest РKelly Melton.  Kelly is a 7 year old boy battling Leukemia and a friend and inspiration to Nerlens.

Hopefully this touching story of hope wipes away a few sour and negative stories you probably already read today.
