Here’s Bobcats big men Cody Zeller and Josh McRoberts playing with sock puppets (Video)

Yes, it comes in the service of promoting a sock drive asking Charlotte Bobcats fans to donate six-packs of new socks for the needy at 'Cats home games through Dec. 27, with fans donating socks (or at least $10, if they'd rather give cash over cotton) getting a voucher for a free ticket to Charlotte's Jan. 20 home game against the Toronto Raptors. That does not change the fact that this video does indeed feature Cody Zeller and Josh McRoberts playing with sock puppets:

Is Zeller's delivery of "That sounds amazing" more than a little disturbing? Absolutely. Is said delivery far less disturbing than the rookie having a fully coiffed sock stand-in for McRoberts to talk to? Of course it is. But if this leads to the Bobcats video promotion team launching their own off-brand reboot of Sifl and Olly, then I'm on board. I could really get behind Bismack Biyombo covering "Dude's House", or Jeff Adrien getting down on some "Rock 'n' Roll Friends." That'd be pretty cres.
