    Time to try some Fab Melo

    Jason Collins does nothing, Brandon Bass is worthless this year.

    Re: Time to try some Fab Melo

    Doc can give you a million and one reasons why not to play Melo... 

    Thing is...sometimes when a fairly new guy or unknown gets in a game, something clicks in their head... the moment, the pressure , w/e it is... and they perform far better than in practice etc... like some players are studs in practice but stink in game situations... the opposite can also be said..

    Look at BBD... he played mostly garbage time for us but when KG went down with his kne..viola!!  BBD became a very important player for us, esp in the playoffs....  an even larger leap was Jeremy Lin.... cut from the ROckets and prob out the door with the Knicks... but he got stuck into the game and became a star.... it all manifested itself into a big contract back with the Rockets..


    ..and then theres Doc.... waiting for Fab to have 30 straight triplr doubles before he brings him up to rot on the bench... sometimes ya goota go with the hot hand and Ive posted so many times  that Doc just doesnt know how to do that

    Don't forget about Kris Joesph. Like both of these kids, but both will not see any time.

    Melo isn't anywhere near ready for the NBA.

    In two seasons...maybe.

    They may as well play Melo.

    Not playing melo is resulting in 30 point losses.  How can playing Melo result in anything worse?  Are we going to lose by 40 points with Melo?

    "How can playing Melo result in anything worse?"

    By ruining a young player's confidence when he can't make up the talent difference on the court at any rate. 

    Not bringing up Fab is primarily an Ainge decision, not a Doc decision folks. Fab isn't comiing up this season and frankly I agree with it. He's a two to three year project and you have to bring him along. 

    Ainge isn't going to move him up, but he's not going to trade him either.

    I agree with the bold faced comment.  Slippery slope with this guy.

    what do they have to lose? this years celtics don't look like they will even make the playoffs. they need to blow it up and start over. they may be able to get some draft picks at the trade deadline.  this looks like its going to be a repeat  the post bird-mchale-parish years. lets face it they are not going to all of a sudden snap out of it and play championship ball. that ship sailed about 3 years ago.

    Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge gave coach Doc Rivers a vote of confidence on Friday.

    While a 14-14 start isn't exactly ideal, we don't believe this "vote of confidence" to be of nefarious means. Ainge is just standing behind a coach who has helped turned the Celtics back into a consistent contender after several lean years. The Celtics will likely get it turned around and remain one of the most dangerous teams once the playoffs approach.

    IMO the more significant question is whether the Celtics ownership will continue to give Danny Ainge a vote of confidence if the Celtics continue to flounder.

    He's only going to learn so much in the D League, though.  I would leave him there....for now, but, if he continues on the tear he's been on then I would bring him up after the all-star break.  Yes, you want to preserve his confidence, but you also want his game to develop, which it won't if he's doing nothing but dunking and tipping in balls over much less talented players in the D League.  You also do not want him to become bored and frustrated playing in the D League.  Leave him there to the All-Star game.  If he continues to put up big numbers, then call him up to the big leagues.

    Having a center who is setting rebounding records in the D-League just stay in the D-League while the parent club is the worst rebounding team in the NBA make NO SENSE.

     

    Melo's confidence will be just fine - bring him UP!
