I have been trying to figure out what NBA past or present that reminds me the most of Cody Zeller and what kind of pro he will be and today it dawned on me who I envision him being like.  It is this guy

Both guys are 6'11 230.  Highly skilled.  Little soft around the basket.

 

Cody is a bit more athletic and polished but Seikaly was probably a better rebounder.

 

But I envision similar production.  Seikaly was a @50%fg 15ppg 10 rpg guy.  Not an all-star or franchise player but a really quality and productive player in the NBA.  That is the exact type of player I think Cody will be.

Cody reminds me of a 6'11 12 year old.

I can see comparisons.  Im not saying Cody Z will be a superstar, but you just dont see many 7 footers with his athletic ability and shooting ability.  At the end of the day, I expect him to be more like a Dirk than anything.  Tough cover.

Seikaly - the first official douche hated by Charlotte sports fans.  Who else remembers in our inaugural draft (88), he made a comment that he wouldn't play in Charlotte, and he ended up with our expansion rival in Miami.  We had somebody to boo right out of the gate.

 

Screw his dumb ass.

Ditto.  In a weak draft if you can get someone that puts up those numbers consistently and brings some energy, I'd call that a win.

Zeller is an athletic freak at 7feet. He had probably the highest vertical leap among bigs at the combine and runs the floor like a gazelle. He'll be a better player than Seikaly almost immediately. I see him doing very well in Summer League. We will have a very good line up for Summer League. Trust the Cho

Zeller is more like Keith Van Horn than Seikaly

I'll go out on a limb now and say Zeller becomes a 20pt 10rb guy in two years. Especially with Clifford and Ewing.

That's more than out on a limb.....you're on an island.

I hope this is true. We are due for ONE good draft pick.
