Fab Melo: Celtics ‘didn’t give me a chance’

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On October 7, 2013 @ 3:23 pm In General | 2 Comments

Fab Melo is actually talking about practice. The Celtics didn’t give him a chance in practice, huh? Um, it’s practice Fabricio. Isn’t practice, by nature, a series of chances? And the Celtics gave Melo too many of them. In fact, I’m pretty sure I saw Bryan Doo [5] shut down Melo on the block at the end of practice once.

The C’s spent a first-round pick on Melo and paid him $1.25 million for three rebounds. Or $418,240 per rebound. He’s 7 feet, and the Celtics needed big men last year like Tom Brady needs wide receivers. Desperately.

I suppose the Grizzlies didn’t give him a chance, either, since they waived him three weeks into his Memphis career. And once Melo cleared waivers, every other team joined that list of nonbelievers, too, except perhaps the Mavericks, who invited Melo to camp. See. Everybody gives 7-footers a chance. Just ask Eddy Curry.

At least Fab Melo has a long career ahead of him as the Leonard Maltin of Twitter:
