Big news out of Chapel Hill today. Report claim that 7 foot freshman Tyler Zeller could return to the Tar Heels on Wednesday against NC State. Zeller has missed all but 2 games this season after breaking his left wrist against Kentucky.
This would be a huge boost to a North Carolina team that was already hitting its stride. Getting Zeller back will give the Heels some much needed depth and this will be quality depth. Zeller, a McDonalds All-American, started the two games he played filling in for an injured Tyler Hansbrough.
With Zeller back, the Heels add another quality big man in the middle. This could prove to be vital given the inconsistent play of Deon Thompson. As a 7 footer, Zeller will be able to give the Heels more length inside which could make up for some of their shortcomings on defense. With Uconn's Jerome Dyson going down for the year and the return of Zeller, North Carolina once again is emerging as the favorite to cut the nets down in Detroit.
News & Notes
- Apparently Mike Tyson is writing a tell-all book about his life. There's no way he can actually be writing this thing himself right? If Tyson wants this to be a success he needs to have this book available on audio with himself as the reader. That would get him out of debt in a hurry. Mike, we can't wait for your book. I'd love to hear about your boxing career and you as a semi-good husband. Praise be to Alah!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBqoaW2oEsU
- Sam Cassell traded to the Kings??? I could've swore he was a coach for the Celtics.
- I really liked the Thunder's rebuilding project. Obviously Kevin Durrant is a stud. Russell Westbrook has tons of potential and Jeff Green seems to slip under every ones radar. Today they added Tyson Chandler in a trade giving up Joe Smith and Chris Wilcox. Add in another high lottery pick this year and they could have one hell of a team in a couple years. Imagine adding a Blake Griffin into that mix.
