07:05 AM ET 06.24 | Cleveland has an awful lot riding on its No. 1 pick in the draft, as does Nerlens Noel. [Noel] expected questions about his surgically repaired left knee. He did not, however, count on his character -- or his ability to judge it -- coming under fire. "That's foolish. That definitely bothered me," Noel said. "I heard some crazy things. It was shocking. I wondered, 'How could they say this stuff about me?'" ... Without naming names, [agent Andy Miller] suspects "sour grapes" from agents who lost the Noel sweepstakes are to blame. "It was definitely provoked by agents that I didn't meet with," Noel said. "I was mainly focusing on rehab and I told my adviser that. I told him, "Just tell them I'm not meeting with any agents." I guess they took that personally."

There is a big difference in money for a #1 overall player and say a #5 pick. The agent is just pissed that his payday will be smaller.
