He's going to be good.
But not THAT good.
I'm looking at him in the poor man's Chris Bosh/LaMarcus Aldridge/Pau Gasol range. Good but not dominant rebounder, solid post moves, good athleticism, smart, but not exactly the #1 guy for a title team.
His length is a but disconcerting though. Hopefully he measures out a littler longer than expected
If we have the #1 pick and want to go with a big man, I would almost go with Noel. I know right now that is a major risk but I feel that Noel's ceiling is MUCH higher than Zeller. Zeller is more of a finess player who is not a dominant rebounder, and that is exactly what you need for a franchise center. Now if he puts his game on Beast-Man Mode and puts up some double digit rebounding games in the near future, I will change my opinion. But right now, with this draft being extremely weak and no one really sticking out, I think we would have to go with who we think may have the most potential and I think Noel and Shabazz definitely have the upper-hand in that department over Zeller. I think Len out of Maryland is quite comprable in his own right and would be worth some consideration. You will also have to keep an eye out for the McLemore kid out of Kansas and Isaiah Austin out of Baylor.
We need a big polished scorer inside. I dont see that in this draft.
Id go with Shabaz or McLemore in the first. Then get a big that can rebound and play defense.
Look to get Wiggins or a scoring polished big next year.
At this point, I would not take him over Noel if taking a Big. And I would take Shabazz or McLemore before either Noel or Zeller.
You guys overrate Biz way too much, how promising does he really look? We all know Noel will be a better NBA player than Biz, and is already more polished even at this level.
Biz is still extremely raw. I don't think we can actually say how good he can be one way or the other. I do think we could have a Serge Ibaka type player on our hands if he is developed correctly.
