Kevin Garnett's trying to mentor Fab Melo

Boston Herald: And no sooner had practice broke — the heavy stuff won’t be applied until tomorrow — than a bespectacled Garnett had Fab Melo over in one corner of the floor, attempting to teach the rookie the proper way to post up against an arm-barring defender.

Rajon Rondo vs. Chris Paul

Rajon Rondo Vs CP3….Who Is Better? There are a lot of great point guards in the NBA these days. However, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul are among the top five at the position.

The NBA season opens in four weeks with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat on TNT.
