It's time to go sign Luke and Tyler so we can have a Zeller/Zeller/Zeller combo just how the Hurricanes have Staal/Staal/Staal...

Let me know when draft grades take over for actual skill.

 

Rich Cho even pointed out that when he was with OKC, people said they were foolish for drafting Westbrook at number four... jokes on them

 

By the way, the average landing spot for Westbrook was 7. 

 

The average landing spot for Zeller was also 7.

I think some of us deserve to be "bobcat" fans.

Sorry I don't feel the need to bash the kid before seeing him play a full NBA season, let alone an NBA game...

I hope we keep McRoberts just so at least ONE guy in the rotation is older than me. And I'm just 25.

seems like an intelligent, no nonsense guy. Here's to hoping he actually becomes LA (would be nut-tastic)

If Jordan tanks it this time around fans are going to bail. You only get so many do overs. It's obvious he doesn't know what the fug he is doing and being MJ is not going to carry a bottom feeder franchise forever.

I just watched Coach Clifford's interview, and he said he thinks Cody can evolve into a Pau Gasol type of player.

More like if Jordan doesn't tank it, fans are going to bail. 99% of the Charlotte fanbase are looking at Andrew Wiggins and that 2014 Draft class already. If we land a top5 prospect in next year draft, Cho's plan worked well. It will be the last real draft we need to build this franchise through. After that, it's going to be bringing guys through Free Agency.

I like the pick. After watching the video of coach Clifford talking about how the are gonna use him and what he thinks of his strengths I like the pick even more.

I start to like this pick better more by the minute.  He fits perfectly on this team, we needed a big who can score and Zeller can do just that in a variety of ways.  I think he was used incorrectly in college, or he was playing out of position at least.  Indiana was relying on him to be their big man who patrolled the paint .  They rarely gave him the opportunity to knock down shots from the outside and he only took two three pointers his entire college career.  That's not Zeller's game.  He showed in workouts he can be lethal from behind the arch and I think we think he will be.  How he was used at Indiana is NOT Zeller's game.  In reality he's a stretch four who can pop out and knock down J's.  Thinking about he and Kemba operating on the P & R gives me a rager.  He's 7'0" so he'll be taller than almost any PF that will be put on him.  If other teams elect to play their C on him you can leave Zeller away from the basket, then he'll have a huge speed and athleticism advantage on the center and can take it to the hoop for a bucket or a foul, or both.  He can run the floor like a deer.  We're gonna be deadly on fastbreaks, Kemba leading the charge with Zeller and MKG filling in the paint.  Scary.  His game compliments Biyombo's perfectly, Biz can stay home in the paint while Zeller will help us stretch the floor.  I was a little upset at first, but I think it was just because I was shocked.  I just knew it'd be Len, Noel or McLemore then when commish said Zeller I was like "WHAT?!".  But the more I read into it, it makes perfect sense.  His game on offense is clearly better and more polished than Len and Noel's and I don't think McLemore will ever be any better than Henderson.  Zeller wants to be here, you can just tell.  Yeah guys always have to say that, but you can tell it's genuine with him.  I truly believe this is where Zeller has wanted to be for awhile now. Also he's hilarious.  His tweets are amazing and his press conference today was just great. We gained another solid piece to our young core today.  I think if we can tank one more year it will pay dividends.  I'm not even planning on getting Wiggins or Parker but the draft is just loaded next year.  We can find our true franchise player.  I don't think we have him yet.  We don't necessarily need a LeBron or Durant, just a guy like Paul George. A true face to our franchise.  I really like what we're doing here.  Just think we could potentially have the 1, 9 and 13 picks next year.  The future is bright.

 

E: I really think he could win ROTY.  Him or Trey Burke are my favorites.  I think Zeller averages 14.7/6.9 next year.  That could bag him the award.
