The majority of the NBA rookies were in New Jersey last week for the league’s rookie transition program. Those rookies included the C’s newest members of the frontcourt Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo. Both guys earned some praise within the NBA.com rookie survey for being two of the funniest rookies selected this season and we may have received a sneak preview why Melo earned such praise in this clip released by the NBA earlier this week.
Luckily for Melo, the TD Garden has additional support in their reinforced chairs on the bench so this issue should not be a problem come October. However, I would have paid money to see how KG would have reacted to this happening on the Celtics bench.
