Grantland tidbit on Zeller

03 December 2013 - 02:34 PM

I don't really follow the bobcats, but I was perusing grantland and came across this little nugget and got a chuckle out of it.

7. The overwhelmed Cody Zeller

Zeller's a rookie learning the speed of a new level, so some growing pains are understandable. But he's shooting 34 percent with an ugly turnover rate, and looking completely overwhelmed every time he catches the ball at the elbow — his sweet spot, should he desire a long NBA career. "OK, I have the ball. Omigod, omigod, omigod, I have the ball! Should I shoot? I dunno, that guy is pretty close to me. Can I dribble? Am I allowed to dribble? Maybe I should pass to that guy in the corner, the Swedish one or something, and, oh, shoot, they figured out I was looking over there. OK, gotta do something! Here goes!" (At this moment, Zeller typically takes one or two hard lefty dribbles toward the rim and then falls over.

Luke Kuechly | Team Twitter: @Panthers
Carolina Panthers | LB | Age: 22 | NFL experience: 2nd year
ESPN Fantasy rank: LB1; overall 2


Kuechly led the NFL with 164 tackles as a rookie last season. He was the only player in the league to make at least 10 tackles in 10 different games.
-- ESPN Stats & Information (@ESPNStatsInfo)

Kuechly, though only a second-year player, should already be considered one of the best in the game.

He's also listed as the most underrated between 20-30 in an insider article.

Smitty getting love from Chris Carter

Number eight on his top ten receivers list

8. Steve Smith, Carolina: At 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, Smith is the smallest receiver on this list. At 34 years old, he's also the oldest. But that's how much respect I have for his game. He's still difficult to single cover, and if you look at it from a pound-for-pound perspective, he's probably the strongest player in the league. No receiver on this list competes harder than Smith. The only real problem he's had is exposure. He's played on so many bad teams in Carolina lately that people sometimes forget how good he still is.Number eight on his top ten receiver list.
