Nerlens Noel has yet to play a game in Philadelphia, and he already hates Sidney Crosby. Or, he at least has a shirt that says as much.
According to CBS Philly, the first-round pick bought a black-and-orange (Flyers colors) “I Hate Sidney Crosby” T-shirt from Cheesesteak Tees in Philadelphia on Wednesday. His purchase thrilled store employee Tom Hogg, who called Noel the “coolest guy ever.”
The former Kentucky star likely won’t make his NBA debut until January at the earliest as he continues to recover from a torn ACL, but it’s cool to see him embracing his new city even before he makes it onto the court. Then again, Noel did grow up just miles from Boston, so hating Crosby probably comes naturally.
Check it out in the photo below (the shirt is the one over his left shoulder).
