7.8 pts/ 5.8 reb 7-0 Center Fab Melo Goes #22 in NBA Draft (Bye Bye Alex)

On the Celtics pick in the draft:

The book in Melo is completely different. Unlike Sullinger, Melo is a raw talent. He averaged 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.9 blocks in his sophomore season at Syracuse. He anchored the team's traditional 2-3 zone, a defense that did not prepare him for defending NBA big men. Still, Melo is a true 7-footer and has the chance to develop into an NBA center.

Maturity is a question for Melo. He was held out of the NCAA tournament for No.1-seeded Syracuse this season after questions about his eligibility.

Compare that to 7-1" Alex Len's freshman averages of 6.0 pts/5.4reb and I really don't see how Alex stays past his sophomore year. At least it will fun to watch!
