Dude has a post game, and a pretty damn consistent jumper from what I've seen.  Add that to the fact that he's 7 foot, athletic, and close to a 40 inch vertical... I have to say I've warmed up to this pick a lot after letting it settle in.

 

And with this next draft being so stacked I hope we suck enough to get another lottery pick (you know a few teams are going to intentionally tank this year for Wiggins).

But, the "Bobcats Suck" chant was embarassing.

 

Yep, extremely.

The more and more I think about this pick, the more I like it.  Sounds like the Hornets will play him at the 5, but will mainly be a 4.  IDK about you, but a 4-man who is 7ft tall, 38 inch vertical, has 3 pt range and can get up and down the court sounds great to me.  The fact that their really isnt a comparison for Cody scared me at first, but Cody is very unique.  Im a UNC fan, so I got to see Tyler play a lot.  Cody is much better at this stage in his career and has a ton of upside.  We just got to sit back as Hornets fans and be patient.

 

We have a PG in Kemba Walker who has all-star potential

We have a SF in MKG who is going to get better and better and better

We have a PF/C in Bismack Biyombo who is going to get better and better and become a DPOY candidate before long.

We now have a PF/C in Cody Zeller who can score and has all-star potential

 

If the cards play out right, and we get lucky and get Andrew Wiggins, a starting 5 of Walker, MKG, Wiggins, Zeller, Biyombo is a very young but very talented one.  Will be a very good defensive team, but will also get up and down the court and I imagine wont have much trouble scoring. 

 

This is/should be the Hornets thinking, and man, if we finally get some luck and get Wiggins, and have a ton of money to spend, we will be right back into contention.

How dare we draft the most athletic big in the draft who also happened to be the best player of the best team in the nation playing in the best conference in the nation.

We should have gotten one of those other bigs that has already had surgery on their lower body or that one kid who doesn't seem to give a sh1t about basketball.

Idiots.

Wait, so now we're not bashing the pick because he's a no good cracker?

One thing I like about the pick is that Zeller can come in and play right away unlike Bennett, Noel and Len who are all injured.

 

If you think about it, we took the only big man in the top 10 that can come in and play in summer league.

Zeller's workout video from Sacramento is awesome. 

 

BUT... I wanted Bennett or McLemore.  I think Cleveland made the right move with Anthony Bennett @ #1.

To be honest, you couldn't go wrong with any of the top 5 picks next year.

I was shocked at first, but I really like the pick now. I think Zeller has the potential to be a all star type player. You know he is going to work hard and get better. I really like that our team has a bunch of gym rats that want to be great.

 

He did really well in this draft workout and the Hornets draft workout

 

 

Here's the sac video that was posted earlier in the thread for those that missed it.
