    let the kid play!

    fab melo needs to start asap.sure he is going to struggle he is a rookie but i dont see any other options as we cant afford the big als or josh smith of the world and the celtics need to get bigger in the paint.just seems like a waste if a draft pick if we dont either use him or package him in some type of trade.

    Not sure that he is ready to contribute.  I would imagine that it will take a couple of years to really develop into a good NBA player.  Even some of the elite college players take some type to develop after they are drafted.

    "Developing" requires play and if he's not in the D League he can't get the time unless he's on the court.

    the best way to learn anything is hands on.we have a legit seven footer sitting the bench .if the only thing we can get is defensive stops and rebounds from him that would help a lot.

    I wouldn't mind letting him play a little just to see what he can do.  I am pretty sure the experiment wouldn't last very long though.  Of course you can never tell.  He may get in there and block 4 shots a game. Not so sure that would make up for his other shortcomings though. First thing is he needs to learn he isn't a shooter yet,  just concentrate on rebounding, defense, and hustle.

    i agree they should just try it. if it doesnt work at all they can always put him back on the bench.
