Nerlens Noel's game starts with big 'D'

Boston Amateur Basketball Club director and coach Leo Papile knows basketball in the New England area. He also is the senior director of basketball operations for the Boston Celtics and was a huge fan of Hall of Famer Bill Russell. Papile said no other basketball player has had a game like Russell’s — at least, not until Nerlens Noel broke onto the scene. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound native of Everett, Mass., plays for The Tilton School in New Hampshire and has been tabbed as the nation’s best defensive player in any high school class.
