Wha? Yes, this is terrible news. I remember the amazing stretch he had with Maine several years ago, putting up triple double points/bounds/blocks, and hoped he would be the backup answer for KG his final year for one final championship run

He caused vacated wins, Boeheim had nothing to do with it! Why would the coach and AD want to lie and cheat to keep a big time player on the court? It's all the player's fault. He deserved to DIIIIIEEEEE!

He was no saint because he struggled academically and Syracuse bent the rules for him? Wow. That woman tho.

It appears as if a Syracuse trustee wishes the world to know that Fab Melo was a flawed human being. Not disagreeing with the view, but I am not sure I agree this is the proper time for this.
I saw this earlier today. What a POS person, to focus on this upon hearing that a 26 year old has died. A kid who, I am guessing, got Syracuse in trouble doing what the administration and his coaches at Syracuse wanted him to do. Minus the whole getting caught part.

We'll always have this:
