The New Orleans Pelicans held the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and they were the ones who finally stopped the slide of former Kentucky star Nerlens Noel. With the pick, the Pelicans get to team up Noel and Anthony Davis in a move that John Calipari was never able to do at Kentucky.
With social media interaction becoming increasingly integrated in professional sports, we scanned Twitter to see just what the Pelicans fans were saying about the pick.
What did the Pelicans fans think of their team’s selection? Here is what they had to say:
Anthony Davis is teaming up with Nerlens Noel. Twin towers right there! #wow
