SICK OF HEARING "he's a long way from being NBA ready"
Just what does that mean anyway ?
What about Steimsa coming in and playing right away ?
What about rookie Semi Erdan coming in and playing ?
What about at the end of last season, the Celtics pick up Ryan Hollings and they play him immediately.
I say Fab Melo is as ready as any of these guys were.
Put him out there and get tape on him. Then coach him up.
Let him learn to play when hurt , or with a cold or the flu.
Let him learn how to get on the team bus on time or the team plane.
Let him deal with refs calling phantom fouls on him like they did to Sullinger.
Let him learn how to take getting yelled at by Doc Rivers in front of 18,000 people
Let him learn how to take what the coaches tell him during a game and make the adjustment.
Just get tape on this guy and give him intensive one on one instruction , teach him to watch himself on tape , teach him the rotations and the playbook,
let him play and even if he does EVERYTHING wrong, it will be a major benefit to him and the team. LET HIM make all the bonehead mistakes NOW , next season we will have him as the young big man not seen in Boston since............?
