    Head hit the floor pretty hard after being knocked out by Wiggins. Hope he recovers fully he deserves a break from all the injuries he's had.

    Wiggins must feel pretty bad now

    That's horrible... took two hard hits to the head. Hopefully he'll be OK.

    Just said a prayer for him. God keep him safe. That is so scary.

    That injury definitely sucks, I'm sure the elbow Wiggins used to "defend" himself wasn't with malicious intent. Hope Noel comes back healthy with a good push for a better contract.

    Noel bet on himself instead of signing the contract Dallas offered him, hopefully the bet pays off.

    When I first saw the subject, all I cared about was my fantasy team’s loss.

    After seeing that, I said a prayer for this man.

    Wiggins tried to poster Noel, while Noel was mid-air attempting to block his dunk Wiggins inadvertently elbowed Noel in the head. The elbow appears to knock Noel unconscious mid-air, Noel falls like a sack of potatoes with his head bouncing off the court.

    Maybe Wiggins didn't grasp the full extent of the injury, but in the video it looks like he's literally the only one who didn't care. He seemed frustrated at something else the entire time. Maybe it was just a bad camera cut, though.

    it won't. that ship sailed a long time ago. he won't see that type of offer again in his career. whoever advised him to turn down that deal cost him a good amount of money

    Hope him a speedy recovery with an off season contract like in "Jerry Maguire".
