Cody Zeller, at 7-foot and 230 pounds, certainly has a statue fit for the Big Apple. However, seeing as the Hoosier went from Washington, Indiana to his home state’s Bloomington campus, he may not have been quite as ready for the Brooklyn scene as some others gearing up for the 2013 NBA Draft.

Now, before you read his tweet below, understand that Washington is a 4.77-square mile town which had an estimated population of 11,739 in 2012. That’s practically the same number as one might find in a New York City high rise or two.
