With the 21st and 22nd picks in the 2012 NBA draft last night, the Celtics filled two gaping holes in their roster with the addition of Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo from Syracuse University. As is the case with many of the picks from this years draft, both have more than their fair share of question marks as they make the transition into the NBA, but with that in mind it makes the return of Kevin Garnett all the more important for the upcoming season.
Fab Melo is without a doubt the biggest question mark of this draft. I had openly expressed that he was the best fit for the Celtics needs when trying to predict where the Celtics would go with their picks, standing at 7’0” Melo is a long and lean defensive minded Center. Melo can block shots with the best of them and plays terrific in the zone defense as he did in Syracuse, question marks remain on his capability in man to man and as a rebounder. Other question marks have risen as to his level of maturity after being sus...

Possibly the biggest news for the Boston Celtics came this morning in the Boston Herald. According to the Herald, Kevin Garnett has informed the Boston Celtics this morning that he would be returning for the 2012-13 season! More News To Follow
Fab Melo made all the difference for Syracuse when he was on the floor, and his absence in the NCAA Tournament due to academic ineligibility robbed the Orange of their defensive presence inside. As a result, most casual basketball fans never got a chance to see what the 7-foot center from Brazil could really do. If Melo figures out the fundamentals, he could anchor the Celtics'...

The Celtics rolled the dice at Thursday's NBA draft, selecting two players who have excellent potential, but also some risk. The C's picked Ohio State's Jared Sullinger, who was once considered a top five pick but who slid amidst questions about his health. Sullinger's bad back drew a medical red flag, causing some teams to shy away from the proven forward -- much...
It doesn’t necessarily take an insane person to speak to himself. Or maybe I’m insane.Since last night, I’ve caught myself multiple times staring at the man in the mirror, shaking my head and muttering to nobody but myself, “Why Fab Melo? Why?” Then I slapped the man in the mirror, splashed a little bit of water on his head and started trying to talk him into the Syracuse...

Could Fab Melo from Syracuse be the Sixers’s pick at #15 in tonight’s draft?
With the 15th pick overall the Sixers pick, Syracuse canter Fab Melo. Melo a seven-foot 250 pound sophomore averaged 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game last season with the Orangemen. With few impact players in the draft and none at pick 15 the Sixers need to address the most important...
NBA draft picks are scouted and researched so much that basketball fans receive an overwhelming amount of analysis on each player. This player scores 0.7 more points per game than this player. That center gets a half block more than the other one. NBA fans know all the numbers that are thrown out when comparing two prospects. While the numbers are very important, they can often overlook...
There is a chance that Josh Smith and Kevin Garnett could be Celtics teammates come next season
