9 games in and we're talking about tanking already....WTF
"So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.
This will be a good draft from 5-20. The top 5 will be slightly better than the rest. There is not a Lebron, Durant, Rose, or even a John Wall. But there are some all-stars in this draft. PLease don't equate weak draft for useless players.
Can we just call a duck and duck?
The reason so many of us don't want Zeller is because he's a tall, white, American college star, and based on history and past experiences, there's nothing wrong with that.
I think Nerlens Noel will be te number one pick but I would rather have Zeller.
Give me Isaiah Austin over Zeller, I am really not a fan of Zeller, but who knows maybe he will surprise.
Why so SERIOUS
I'm going to give Cody more than one season before I start capping off his potential....
Brad daugherty couldn't jump for a phone book and was still a #1 pick and multiple time all star center.

You have a good point. Muhammed may be the second coming of Michael Jordan but until I see him play some games against some quality players I'm not buying it. I've heard that talk about many who have not panned out.
I didn't compare their games at all. Not sure where you are seeing this.
I was commenting on how someone said he took Indiana and made them a great program again. My point was that, a great college player doesn't necessarily translate to the NBA. I still view Zeller as a weak player. Look at all the guys who have come to the NBA and been that skinny - players like Ed Davis, Brandon Wright, Anthony Randolph - all lotto picks based on talent, but couldn't do anything because they are simply too weak to play in the NBA.
Zeller is talented and will find a way to be effective - but he will never be worthy of a #1 pick, much less a superstar.
