CBSSports.com Preseason National Player of the Year: Cody Zeller (Indiana) — He’ll be the preseason pick for this award by just about everyone because he’s the best player, potentially the top overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and plays for arguably the top team. Zeller does everything for the Hoosiers — he scores, rebounds, defends, runs the court and leads by example. If there’s a weakness, it’s that Zeller isn’t selfish enough. He needs to take more shots — and if he does, he should be a 20 and 10 guy almost every single night.
