Bulls Wed Sep 12 2012
Former Chicago Bulls forward Brian Scalabrine has retired from the NBA to take a broadcasting job with the Boston Celtics.
It is hard to believe that he lasted in the NBA for 11 seasons. Scalabrine averaged 3.1 PPG and 2 RPG. He should have never been anywhere near an NBA roster. Somehow he managed to stick around while developing a cult following along the way.
Scalabrine's last stop was in Chicago with the Bulls for two seasons. Fans cheered every time he checked into a Bulls game that was already well out of hand. Some even bought that stupid "White Mamba" t-shirt.
There is not much to say about Brian Scalabrine's playing career. Having said that, I leave you with this question: If anyone out there can provide some evidence of a time Brian Scalabrine positively affected the outcome of a professional basketball game, I will buy you a beer. I'll wait.
