Ford's draft grade for Celtics: B
June, 29, 2012
The Celtics, in his view, get a 'B'.
Ford called the Celtics' first pick -- Jared Sullinger -- a "wide body who can score in the paint and rebound" but also someone who could turn out to be a bust if his back issues turn out to be a chronic condition.
On center Fab Melo -- whom the Celtics took at No. 22 -- Ford says Boston gets a "legit shot-blocker and rebounder" who could eventually turn into a "decent" NBA center.
