VIDEO: Bobcats fans are really excited about the Cody Zeller pick

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Nerlens Noel was available at No. 4. Ben McLemore was available at No. 4.

In an NBA Draft that was crazy from the first pick on, the Charlotte Bobcats had a few options to add prospects many fans and pundits think have star potential. There were rumors Bobcats GM Rich Cho was very high on Cody Zeller, but few thought he'd be bold enough to take the big man out of Indiana with the fourth pick. Most assumed the Bobcats would trade down to nab him or take a higher-profile player like Noel or McLemore if they were available.

Instead, the Bobcats picked Zeller -- and fans at the draft party in Charlotte didn't have the most positive reaction, as seen in the video above.

Noel ended up going sixth to the New Orleans Pelicans before being dealt to the Philadelphia 76ers, and McLemore was selected seventh by the Sacramento Kings. Safe to say people still aren't enamored with Michael Jordan making draft decisions.
