"Sounds interesting..... Is he ready ??? will he ever be ready ????"
Bill, he's as ready as you are.
What you mean "will he ever be ready" - ? I know you're out of your element in a basketball forum but it takes 2-3 years in a D league for an unpolished big man to get his act together. It's a bit like the minor leagues, you know, how baseball players that are drafted don't come up for a few years.
Melo has a mild concussion, http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4700720/fabwatch-concussion-sidelines-melo
here's a link to a post on Melo if you want a bit more background:
The dude has only been playing ball since he was 17. Some patience is in order, though that's asking too much of "blow the team up"/blockbuster trade" Bill. Bill don't worry Danny will make a trade. He's trying to get Cousins now but don't expect a major trade till Feb...
[/QUOTE]AS DAD would say................ "SON, BIG GUYS HAVE TO PROVE THAT THEY CAN'T PLAY, LITTLE GUYS HAVE TO PROVE THEY CAN PLAY" !!!! Im all for giving him some time as I do understand his playing history, it's just that the Good Lord is not making 7 footers every day...... Would he help right now on defense ??? Not many alternatives out there !!
