Cody Zeller Has Rough New Year

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We are not here to focus on anyone’s personal life, but when you post your business on Twitter, it sort of feels like it’s fair game. Which is why we turn our bleary eyes toward Bobcats rookie center Cody Zeller, who had a rough New Year’s Eve/Day. To begin with, Zeller celebrated New Year’s Eve while on the road with the Bobcats. Unfortunately, Zeller celebrated alone on Twitter. And from what he posted, a lonely New Year is nothing new…

(Maybe it’s just me, but it fells like a “frowning”/”crying” emoticon would have been a solid choice at the end of that tweet.)

Then the next day, the Bobcats took on the Clippers, and Zeller’s attempt to fly in and dunk past Blake Griffin was rejected…by the rim.


Those guys on the bench in the background feel his pain.

    Would have been all over ESPN had that dunk gone in. Anyone (somewhat) “Perkins” on Blake have the media going nuts.
