Tonight, in a game that saw the Boston Celtics blow out their rival Los Angeles Lakers and Kevin Garnett reach 25,000 career points, Fab Melo also earned his first NBA basket. Melo had a somewhat humorous comment when it came to KG's milestone:
Fab Melo to KG after Garnett reached 25K points: "I told him, 'I have 24,998 to go.' Hopefully I'll get there." #Celtics #CelticsTalk

As Celtics fans, let's hope that someday Melo will reach 25,000 points, especially if it's while wearing a green and white uniform.
