Zeller, Oladipo star at second day of NBA Combine


Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo both registered impressive marks at the second day of the NBA Combine. Both skipped the basketball skill workouts on Thursday on advice of their agents, but both participated in the speed, agility and leaping drills on Friday.

Oladipo posted the highest max vertical (leap from a running start) of any player in the combine at 42 inches and also registered a standing vertical leap of 33 inches. Zeller actually outleaped Oladipo from a standing start with a 35.5 inch straight vertical and posted a 37.5 inch maximum vertical. Both also performed extremely well in sprints and lane agility drills. Zeller posted the best modified lane agility drill time at 2.79 seconds. Oladipo’s 10.69 second time in the agility drill was one of the best among shooting guards. He ran 3.25 seconds in the 3/4 court sprint and 3.25 seconds in the modified lane agility drill.

    And that horizontal agility is why he was so good redirecting guards off a high screen and roll. It’s one of the reasons, probably the primary reason, Zeller will have a chance at having an impact in the pros… His defense. NBA is so pick-and-roll heavy these days that Zeller can be a real asset.

    I watched a little of the agility drills and the announcers couldn’t stop gushing over our guys’ athletic ability. I didn’t see the previous day’s shooting clinic by Cody, but I’ve read more and more accounts of him just lighting it up from deep. I’m surprised we haven’t seen more revived criticism on here of how we used Cody, especially when the constant muggings he endured down low were not getting called and our inside/outside game rendered ineffective against the Cuse.

    I know this ship has sailed, but I can’t help but romanticize what might have been had Cody stayed one more year. More athleticism all around, coupled with the arrival of another legitimate center (Fischer) and PF (Vonleh), more seasoned depth down low (JH and HMP) would’ve allowed us to use Cody to his full inside/outside potential. Cody’s stock rises even further, and we won’t just be looking like a dangerous team next March. We’d be a favorite again.

    Oh well. The horse is at least comatose, so I’ll stop the beatings for now. My guess is CTC has done quite a but of soul-searching and he’s figuring out how best to maximize the players we will have next year. Hopefully the ill-conceived limited use of personnel was just a lesson he had to learn the hard way. Can’t wait to find out.
