Nerlens Noel, Rick Carlisle address the whole hot dog thing (VIDEO)

Dallas Mavericks big man Nerlens Noel has been racking up DNP-CDs lately. Saturday night’s win over the LA Clippers was another missed game for Noel, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t active.

During the game, Noel apparently ran over to the media area at the American Airlines Center and grabbed himself a hot dog.

Because if you’re not going to be active, you might as well eat. I can certainly relate to that.

The hot dog expedition became a bit of a talking point over the weekend, and so on Sunday Noel and head coach Rick Carlisle decided to address it directly.

Via Twitter:

Well they seem to be in good spirits with each other. Odd since the team reportedly doesn’t see Noel as a hard worker.

Noel is a relish-only guy (what?) but couldn’t find any in the media room on Saturday. Perhaps the Mavericks can find a new place for him to play sooner rather than later.
