Against top flight talent in the nba I expect the same. On the local radio they were saying the drafted him because Patrick Ewing was impressed by his three point shooting in the workout. I remember 10 years ago joe dumars gave the same reason when he drafted Darko milicic over wade, Carmelo, bosh, etc.
This team is just horribly ran, leading up to the draft there were rumors they were trying to unload MKG. Lets give the teenager a chance before we give up on him, shall we? It is nice they will have a top pick next season, hopefully number 1!
As an IU fan the simple fact is we were told "Z" could shoot from the outside. However the Hoosier team didn't need him in that capacity. Zeller did get pushed around but quite frankly he had no help whatsoever from the team. He was the only post player they had. Time will tell.
