I did happen to see him play a game while he was with the Boston's D-league squad, the Maine Red Claws and Melo recorded a triple double (15 pts, 16 rebs and 14 blocks in 37 mins). Those 14 blocks either tied or established a D-league record. He definitely has the ability, it's just that he needs a mentor and somebody to help develop and coach him. I have to agree with Griz above, this might be a better acquisition than Oden, but will he reach the Spurs in the waiver process.
