Cody Zeller’s decision to enter the 2013 NBA Draft was by no means a surprise. But that didn’t do anything to lessen the crushing disappointment felt by one young Indiana fan.
“Cody Zeller’s not playing for the Hoosiers anymore,” wails the young fan into the camera held by his mom. His father, Tim Myers (whose Facebook page this video was first posted to), then explains that the reason Zeller is leaving is because he’s going to the NBA. His ensuing description of what the NBA is makes it sound like a magical land in a children’s book, doesn’t it?
Since being posted on Saturday night, the video has been shared over 1,000 times. Diehard fandom at a young age is just so adorably viral sometimes.
