VIDEO: Folding Chair Unprepared For Celtics' Fab Melo

A helpless folding chair proved no match for Fab Melo's posterior Thursday at the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot. The Boston Celtics rookie tried to take a load off with his incoming class of potential NBA stars and the chair, apparently made out soda cans, crumpled to the floor in a heap leaving Melo looking sheepish in front of his new pals.

This could be some kind of omen for the young man's career, or it could just be really funny. In any case, you should check out the clip after the jump:

The No. 22 overall draft pick in the 2012 NBA Draft probably hoped to give us YouTube gold with clips of blocked shots swatted into the rafters. Until that happens, this clip, for better or for worse, will be the defining moment of his internet career.
