It's also doubtful the Zeller will become the shot blocking threat that Stoudamire in his prime was.
Other than potentially using jump shots to set up drives to the hoop -- potentially without the explosive first step Stoudemire utilized in-his-prime/pre knee injury -- I really don't see Stoudemire as a comp. Stoudemire was never much of a one-on-one defender, and that's where Zeller may have problems, as well.
