Charlotte Bobcat Fans Not Happy With Cody Zeller Pick

[HT: Charlotte Observer and

This was the reaction of Charlotte Bobcat fans when Cody Zeller was announced as the teams first round pick.

It wasn't a particularly popular pick to Charlotte Observer columnist Tom Sorensen.

Sorensen writes: But is this what they need? My column is not long enough, this sports section not large enough and my fingers not agile enough to list all that the Bobcats need.
They especially need a big man who imposes himself on a defense. Zeller, 20, was not that guy at Indiana. He was not so tough in the tough Big Ten last season. He was not so tough in Indiana’s meek NCAA tournament loss to Syracuse.

Zeller was projected as a 7-12 pick in the numerous mock drafts.  The Bobcats had a different take selecting the former Indiana Hooiser at #4.

General manager Rich Cho is in full spin mode to the Bobcat fan base.

“The fans are going to love this guy." Cho said.  "He’s a worker. You’ll see why we chose Cody as the fourth pick.”

Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins added; "“I want to ask them to give Cody an opportunity to show he’s a very good player. To give the Bobcats a chance to help him be a great player. We’re very excited.”
