Primitive types, like int, *can't* be set to null...
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

To expand on Ilja's answer, null is used to show that a pointer is not pointing to anything. Since primitives are not pointers they can never be set to null.
