While he is supposed to be our arch nemesis of sorts - playing for our hated rival, never losing to us, giving us our worst home loss ever, etc. I can't help but root for Cody Zeller. To me, he is like a crimson and cream poor mans Robbie Hummel. Not only is he a great kid, he should flourish now that he will be playing for a coach and not a glorified recruiter. How do you other Boiler fans feel about Zeller in the NBA? I will also root for Oladiper, but I feel more inclined to root for Zeller.
Not only will I be rooting for him but as the best athlete of the big men in the draft, I think he has sneaky potential to really blossom into an all star.
