Fab Melo taking charges: “GIMMIE THAAAAT!!!”

So Fab Melo is an ongoing project for the Celtics and so far in two summer league games he’s proven that he is still just that – a project.  But one thing that he has already developed into a pro form is his catch-phrase for when he takes charges.  During today’s complete thrashing against the Pistons, Fab took three charges and on the third, he lets out a huge scream, shouting...

Danny's in a Melo State of Mind

As we await the draft and discuss the possible players who may be taken with the 16th pick, Danny Ainge is discussing one of last year's draft picks. According to the Herald most of the questions regarding an individual on the Celtics' roster from reporters at the pre-draft workouts were about Fab Melo. Melo spent much of the year in the D-League with the Celtics affiliate...

I wonder how many teams are drooling over the possibility of landing Fab Melo?

Maybe Ainge can convince someone those are NBA numbers? This is easily my favorite moment so far of the media circus that is "NBA Trade Deadline 2013:" In pursuit of guard help, the Celtics have made rookie center Fab Melo available in trade offers, league sources tell Y! Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 20, 2013 Honestly, if this tweet was sarcastic...

It's Fab Melo time! Melo to be in uniform tonight

Celtics Recall Fab Melo from Red Claws

The Celtics have recalled Fab Melo from the Red Claws.   Melo missed the Red Claws New Years Eve game with a mild concussion.   The last time Melo was called up to the Celtics it was for treatment for an injury and my guess is that it's the same for this call up.  According to reports, he sustained the concussion by hitting his head walking through a door.  No, I'm...

Video: Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game

Above are the video highlights from Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game against the Idaho Stampede. Hopefully when Melo gets recalled from the D-League, he can use all the experience he got as a confidence builder and can perform well for the Celtics. We could really use his size.

Melo Gets a Chance to Start Over with the Celtics

We know a few things about the Celtics first round draft pick, Fab Melo. Most obvious is that he is from Brazil. Melo did not start playing competitive basketball until the ninth grade.
