Those responses probably came off more hostile than I meant. I think Noel is still the pick at #1 for many of the reasons you outlined above. That being said, I'm not as sold on him being a sure thing as you seem to be, the injury history and raw offensive ability being the chief reasons.As a lifelong Cleveland fan I think the outcome is simple. If they take him he will be Hasheem Thabeet. If they don't he will become Dwight Howard.

Also I have no idea how you could have "spent a total of 30 hours since the Cavs won the Lottery reading everything that has ever been written about Noel" and not come across that
"When Noel was a sophomore at Everett High School in Massachusetts, he fractured the growth plate in his left knee five games into the season and missed the rest of the year."
So much for no history of other knee problems...
