I think the thing that annoys me most about Cody Zeller is that, pre-draft, he projected as somebody who would generate exciting highlight videos. Nobody used those exact words of course, but the implication was that he would be a skilled, versatile scorer. If you’re a skilled, versatile scorer, your highlight videos are going to reflect that by being hella balls-to-the-wall awesome.
Instead, we get a guy whose scoring game is floaters, layups, the occasional jumper (if under shot clock duress), the occasional poster dunk (more often just lame dunks though), and free throws. Every time Zeller has a good game which seemingly deserves highlightage, I roll my eyes internally because I know the video is going to be another borefest which nobody will desire to watch. It shouldn’t take you by surprise that the video attached to this description is a total snore. You could put this in a baby’s crib and they would go to sleep in an instant. That’s how lame this video is.
One thing that doesn’t annoy me about Cody Zeller is his dire hair situation. It doesn’t annoy me at all. It just makes me anxious because he’s young and his hairline makes him look like he’s forty. I honestly get shook when I see young dudes with such evident balding problems because I know it could be me next.
