Danny Ainge may be giving the players some time away from basketball, but we are calling every player on the roster into our Celtics Town offices for their exit interviews for the rest of this week. Here’s the tenth in the series: Fab Melo.Fab,I’ll admit I entered the season with low expectations for you, and 36 NBA minutes later not much has changed. The bulk of my Fab Melo experience came during summer league, where I cringed every time you tried to break the backboard with a jumper and grimaced every time you were half a second too late with a block. There were times when I was afraid that your projected ceiling as a Brendan Haywood-esque player was too high, and your lack of minutes on a team desperate for big men did nothing to allay those fears. I’m also pretty sure you were offered to the Wizards in the trade for Jordan Crawford and that proposal was rejected, which was equally discouraging.You were every bit as hilarious as I’d hoped however. Whether it was your impressively low-key destruction of a chair, or your epic encounter with a doorway that resulted in a concussion, I wish we could have had more Fab Melo if only for the entertainment value. I can only imagine the adventures you and Jordan Crawford might have together next season.Your humorous exploits aside, you did make considerable strides in the D-League for a (relatively) new basketball player. In late December you set the D-League record for blocks in a game amidst a monster 15 point, 16 rebound, 14 block triple double. You were named to NBA D-League All-Rookie First team and (more importantly) the All-Defensive First Team as well. The real test will come this summer when you’ll have an opportunity to make a case for yourself during Summer League. Until then, keep practicing that jump shot and watch out for those sneaky doorways.Follow Jordan on Twitter: @HiggsOnHoops
