Video: Hornets center Cody Zeller puts Aaron Gordon on a poster

Aaron Gordon,Cody Zeller

Charlotte Hornets big man Cody Zeller was not in the mood to be friendly to folks in the shaded area tonight. He made that evidently clear when he shoved this massive jam down the throat of Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon.

There were no reports made about Aaron Gordon scratching Zeller’s car, but it would have been a believable account based on how angry the former Indiana Hoosier threw the hammer down on Gordon.

Normally, it’s Gordon who’s putting fellow players on posters, but Cody Zeller isn’t too shabby either when it comes to dunking on people.

Here’s Zeller snatching the soul right out of Pau Gasol’s body with this thunderous dunk from years ago.

In addition to his highlight, Zeller also enjoyed getting the win against the Magic, 120-88. He finished with eight points, eight rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 23 minutes on the floor as the Hornets’ starting center.

Gordon, on the other hand, had a lackluster outing in the Hornets game. After scoring 26 points in the season-opening win over the Miami Heat at home, Gordon coughed up a paltry sum of five points on a salty 2-for-9 shooting from the field. He did get 10 rebounds, though, to go with two assists, two steals, two blocks – and a slightly bruised ego thanks to Zeller.
