nbadraft.net (LaMarcus Aldridge):
Strengths: Bigman with an excellent basketball IQ and all around athlete … A gazelle. Runs the floor extremely well for a 7 footer. He’s also has great body control for a center, showing unusual ability to convert plays on the break.
Weaknesses: Not a shot blocker or much of a presence on the defensive end. Can be overwhelmed by stronger and more explosive opponents … While very composed, his moves can be too predictable, leading to blocked shots … Unselfish to a fault. May never be a huge scorer in the league.
It would be worth revisiting the above comments a few years from now to see how Cody has worked on his perceived strengths and weaknesses, no?
We won’t be Famewatcher if we don’t post a Cody Zeller shirtless photo so here you go:
The above pic is from his Twitter account (follow him on Twitter: @CodyZeller) and it is accompanied by the following message which explains what he is doing without his shirt: ” Some harmless freshmen initiation….The nearly naked mile. Don’t worry I had shorts on.”
It would have been more fun for spectators if the “initiatees” (is this even a word?) didn’t have their pants on too, no? Hehehe.
How tall is Cody Zeller? His wiki profile states that he is pretty tall at 7 feet (2.13 m). He also weighs 240 lb (109 kg).
His shoe size? We don’t his exact size but we think its bigger than big :-)
Does he have a girlfriend? Two years ago, chacha.com has this answer for you: “According to Cody’s myspace page he is straight and single. So, no, Cody does not have a girlfriend.”
Maybe he found a girlfriend between then and now? If you are in the know, do tell us any Cody girlfriend info in the comments. Tschuz.
