Oh my god, the kid is so raw, I can't even consider him raw talent. I thought he was going to be a terrible bust and I might just be correct. Unless Ewing can completely turn him around this off season and put 40 pounds on him the best Cody can ever hope for is being a third string PF off the bench. Looking at his stats from tonight's game you wouldn't imagine he had too bad of a game. In reality it was atrocious. I was screaming at my TV for them to bench Cody and I never scream at basketball. I just couldn't take it anymore. He has had fug up after fug up at worst. I recall making a joke when we drafted him saying "Hey he can't make the team any worse" I was wrong, he makes everyone around him worse. Maybe, he is scared.. There has to be something wrong with his game causing him to be this bad. He doesn't even look like he should be on a professional roster. He is missing jump shots that he nailed in college. In a very different way this reminds me of when we drafted Biyombo. The only difference is Biz plays incredible defense and struggles on offense. Zeller struggles in every aspect of the game. Don't rag on me for this but, if he keeps playing like that and can't develop, you might as well put him in the same bust category as Kwame Brown when Jordan drafted him in 2001.
I really really really hope I have to eat crow on this but, I'd take just about anyone taken in the top 15 picks over Zeller. I wish we would have drafted Nerlens Noel and just wanted for him to recover from surgery. With about 3:44 we put McRoberts in and he started surging, he was rebounding, he was assisting, he was knocking down threes. We nearly came back from being down 21 points in under 4 minutes. That McRoberts trade was a hell of a trade. I love the guy.
Sorry for the rant, I just get so sick of seeing us reach for terrible players in the draft.
What are your thoughts on Zeller?
