A terrific athlete with short arms, Zeller must cope with the NBA reality that the closer you get to the rim, the more devastating it is having short arms. On the bright side, he has a smooth and simple perimeter shot, which is benefited somewhat by those same arms (shorter limbs make it easier to have a cleaner shot). If he wants to add value to his athletic game, then becoming a "stretch" big is a great solution. So who better to follow than the best rebounding/shooting power forward ever?
Homework time for the rooks. Which veteran should Cody Zeller study?
