Oladipo, Zeller made NBA All-Rookie Teams

After finishing second in the Rookie of the Year balloting, former Indiana All-American and Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team. He was left off the first-team ballot by just one of the 125 voters. Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams, the Rookie of the Year, was the only player named to all 125 ballots.

Oladipo averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game in his rookie campaign. He finished with double-figure points in 62 games and posted one triple-double.

Former Indiana All-American and Charlotte Bobcats forward Cody Zeller also made the All-Rookie second team. Zeller averaged 6.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season, helping the Bobcats to a playoff berth before they were swept in the first round by the Miami Heat.

  1. Congratulations to two great Hoosiers! Oladipo was a valuable contributor to Orlando from the start. Don;t be surprised to see him outwork every other rookie this summer and come back at a different and better level next year. WHat a creat work ethic. He acts like a professional in the way he handles himself and his business, unlike some professionals who act like clowns. Zeller had a very solid rookie season, despite the negativity of some posters here who claimed that he would fail in the NBA or that this season was a bust for him, or both.

  2. I wonder if Zeller is going to bulk up this summer? I think the Bobcats wan’t him bigger ands stronger, but he’s reluctant to add significant bulk. It will be interesting to see how he looks next October. Of course, I won’t watch him play, but I’ll follow him through the box scores.

    Hope these two great young men stay healthy and continue to enjoy success.
