Nerlens Noel Reacts to Colangelo’s Resignation by Throwing Shade

Nerlens Noel is one of the first players to react to the news that Bryan Colangelo is out as the president of basketball operations for his old team, the Philadelphia 76ers.

He's throwing some shade, too.

Noel's name came up in the initial report released by The Ringer as being a subject of several Tweets from the then mysterious Twitter accounts in question. According to the report, the Twitter accounts, which we now understand were managed by Bryan Colangelo's wife, Barbara, called Noel a "selfish punk" who was "behaving like a vulture." The report goes on to insist that "Brett Brown wanted NN (Nerlens Noel) gone," and that he was bad for the locker room.

On Monday, Noel posted this image on his Instagram Story, indicating that he was playing the online game "Normal Collars" which is a jab at Colangelo.

Today, he became one of the first, if not the first player to react to the news that Colangelo was fired with this meme from the movie "Friday."

With what was said about Noel, presumably by Colangelo's wife, it's easy to see why he was quick to react in this fashion.
