Celtics rookie Feb Melo was working on his post moves at the end of practice, and you'll see future-Hall-of-Fame legend Paul Pierce notice him

love it, love how the captain is teaching the rookie how its done!

Fab Melo needs to be more aggressive if he's going to help us anytime soon...

this isn't the D-League...he needs to be mean!

He is what he is, but his hands are poor and he is weak.   PP was pushing him around from what I saw, he is raw.  Everytime they made contact Melo went backwards.  He has improved since we got him but he needs a lot more work on his hands and strength.   Both things that can be fixed with time.

Great stuff. So the rook gets stuffed on his first try, but then sinks a nice jump hook over the vet on the second try.  Fast learner!

Why is Paul wearing Blazers shorts?  lol

yeh I saw more or less the same thing...doesn't Fab have a good 5 inches and a good 40 pounds on Pierce??

you can't let Pierce push you around like that...this guy needs a speed course with KG

I can see him as a good help defender like Ibaka and DeAndre Jordan but I cannot see him as a good post defender like Perk was...well at least not yet...

Pretty sure he is stronger than what this video has shown, You can't rough up PP, he's the man. Can't go hard on him, But PP is still PP, he has a really good post up game for his size, so crafty.

Hope Fab gets a mean streak like Green has found in the last couple of games.

Cool video. I'd love to sit in for a full practice, all that behind the scene stuff is awesome.

Pierce is the man

As for Fab i dont think he was trying to get too physical with the face of the franchise for the past 15 years in little joking around basketball sequence.

He probably got them last year or maybe in 2005, just in case...

Well he's 6'7 ... I guess by nba standards that's normal but in reality yes he's very big and strong and uses his body well

Yeah, PP is tall and has a wide body. He uses it to its full capacity. PP is a Legend
