Celtic big man Fab Melo is in the gym... Coaches say he's been working hard 10 straight days, very motivated.— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) August 14, 2013
They are making Fab Melo really work... Lots of running and jumping with shooting... https://t.co/bwAD8s01gi— Steve Kyler (@stevekylerNBA) August 14, 2013
Fab Melo? #BeastMode? Consider me curious, but this is all for not if he can't translate this hard work into actual in-game scenarios. There's a big difference between doing the Mikan drill and keeping Dwight Howard off the boards. Maybe it was the signing of fellow Brazilian Vitor Faverani or Kelly Olynyk's sparkling performance in summer league. Whatever it is, it's nice to see a fire lit under Fab. See you in October, big fella.
P.S. Miss you, Leandro Barbosa.
