Watch Nerlens Noel deny John Wall one of the prettiest assists you’ll ever see

John Wall did his part on this highlight. He can't help it if Nerlens Noel is well on his way to becoming a defensive menace.

Few in the NBA have any one skill on par with John Wall’s speed, handles or court vision. The combination of the three is part of what makes the Washington Wizards point guard such a special player. And when all three come together at the peak of their powers, Wall practically becomes a superhero, as he did on this assist during the Wizards’ 106-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers …

Oh, sorry. Beg your pardon. Let’s try that again: … as he did on this near-assist during the Wizards’ 106-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Because Nerlens Noel was having none of it. Instead, he decided to hijack Wall’s highlight.

Seriously, who does that? No love from a fellow Kentucky Wildcat, huh?

Right. Carry on.
