The poor 76ers can't catch a break. Seriously, first they have to deal with Jahill Okafor getting pulled over going like 110mph and then Okafor got in a fight in Boston. Do I even have to mention Joel Embiid. The first round draft pick who hasn't seen a single minute of action? On top of all Okafor and Embiid troubles now they have to to deal with this...
The Washington Post - Philadelphia 76ers forward Nerlens Noel is being sued for $75,000 by the owners of a 4,800-square-foot home he rented, according to TMZ Sports. The owners allege Noel destroyed the home by pouring neon-colored sports drink on carpets all over the house, among other water damage (they claim $30,000 worth of damage has been to the carpets alone), damaging the stove, fridge, dishwasher, window screens and blinds, breaking the elevator and leaving marijuana throughout the home, including in the master bathroom drawers.
Noel, 21, also reportedly clogged toilets with cotton balls and excrement, allegedly prompting a plumber to tell the homeowners, “Someone must not like you.”
The owners claimed they asked Noel for $42,000 to repair the home, which was leased at a price of $54,000 for one-year. The next day they found a tombstone that read “RIP” on the front steps, believing it to be the work of Noel. They interpreted that as a death threat, adding assault to their lawsuit.
But wait. There’s more. Noel even asked the owners to give his security deposit back, according to TMZ.
The odds of Noel getting his security deposit back are the same as the 76ers winning 15 games this year: not gonna happen.
Damn Nerlens, this landlord must have really fucked you over. It's kind of a bummer to have to say he's from Massachusetts now, but at least we got one exciting bad boy from Mass in the league. So funny that he left tons of shit in all the toilets, and purposely clogged them all. Such an immature move, but we all know that would piss anybody off. I love how Philadelphia just can't catch a break. Villanova gets the W, and the whole city is finally hyped for once. Fast forward a few days, and their GM steps down for all the horrible moves he made in the last few years. Leaving behind one of the most ridiculous notes I've ever read. However, putting a tombstone on the guys doorstep, was a BAD move. Now he's got death threat that he can wave around in a judges face.
Hilarious that Nerlens destroyed all the carpets and appliances in the home too. Despite getting a sub par one year education from Kentucky, I'm sure Noel is smart enough to know that he was never going to get away with this crime. You can't smash everything in your apartment and then not have to pay for it? The best part is he had the balls to ask for his security deposit back. I would have loved to hear him ask that. In addition to all these charges and destroyed furniture, the Landlord found weed, and tons of roaches in the master bathroom. That right there might be the funniest part of the whole story. I don't know why, but every time I hear that professional athletes smoke pot, and then theres legit evidence I just find it so funny. Like he had to leave a shit load of roaches like around. Who the fuck keeps there roaches in the first place?
Anyways, it looks like Philly won't be getting better anytime soon. Hopefully Joel Embiid can put down the shirley temples and finally play one NBA game sometime soon. I heard he is making profess though, and we can expect him to play at some point in the next 5 seasons. Hopefully Philly's big men can keep there shit together this summer, but we all know that won't happen.
You can always count on TMZ to be there. Classy stuff by Jahill here, and that dude got knocked the fuck out.
