VIDEO: Bobcats' Cody Zeller is asking you for your socks

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Charlotte Bobcats' rookie Cody Zeller has struggled to put the ball in the basket consistently in his first season with just 37.1 percent from the field, but he still has managed solid averages of 5.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in 17.8 minutes of action. While he's still learning to play the NBA game on the court, he's starting to understand how to help people off the court. The video above is a promotion for a sock drive Zeller is participating in.

That's some pretty solid acting when Josh McRoberts confronts him. At the end, McRoberts takes control of the sock puppet with long hair, which may have a striking resemblance to the power forward. Is it Sock McRoberts or is the uncanny similarity in hair just a coincidence?

Yes, it's that slow of a news day right now.
