#CelticsTalk When it comes to NBA-level defense, Melo not yet the man ... http://ow.ly/bUbnG

Basically, Melo played Zone and some are suggesting he is going to be clueless how to translate that into an NBA defense especially the Celtics system.
It remains to be seen if Melo's defensive prowess in a zone defense can translate well in Boston's man-to-man dominated schemes.
"We have to teach him the Celtic way. We have to teach him how to work and understanding playing as a winner; there's a lot of work to be done. But I love his size and potential. He has both of those things. And if he has great character, then he has a chance."
