Fab Melo Reassigned to Maine Red Claws


With two NBA games and his first made basket in the books, the Celtics announced yesterday that Fab Melo’s time in the big leagues is over for now. They have sent the rookie center back down to the Maine Red Claws. While it was fun to see the former Syracuse star get his first floor time of the season, just eight minutes of court time illustrated how much more work the big man has to do, especially on the defensive end, to compete for regular minutes on the NBA level.

With the C’s having just three more games until the All-Star Break, getting Melo back to Portland for some additional floor time after giving him a nice taste of the big league is the best move for all parties. Fab got rewarded for a job well done in the first half of the season in the D-League with a couple in-game appearences and Doc Rivers made C’s fans happy by giving the center some run. Rivers also doesn’t have to worry about ridiculous fans calling on the team to play Melo more. Not now anyway.

    This is an excellent video of Melo not being good yet. And Pierce being great.

      Thanks for the link. Melo looks pretty gangly and slow, and not all that strong.

    That reverse layup was incredible. Melo should start. Just kidding :)

    Wow, watch KG in the background hit every shot he takes (but one that rims out). Monster!

      Nice. That's true. he hits like 20 shots

    Melo looks like a deer in headlights in tge NBA. He hasn’t got the confidence yet.

    We still need to give him time. Remember how lost AB looked his rookie season. He had trouble dribbling the ball up the court at times.

    If the C's are truly invested in developing him I think he needs to get consistent garbage time in the NBA. Playing D-league isn't going to cut it for a center. With scorers and wing players it's great because though the competition is weaker and the game slower…a jump shot is a jump shot…and the fundamentals of your offensive game are going to translate.

    But with a post player, it's drastically different. Melo blocked 14 shots in a D-leaugue game, but when you see his timing he wouldn't do anything but foul in the NBA…he's always a step or two slow for the speed of NBA players. The fact that Pierce can defend him in the post and torch him at will shows you that he need practice against really great players to develop. I hope he gets it.
