i'm excited about this

Quote:
The White Mamba has a challenge, are you read to accept? The former Boston Celtics forward who is now a broadcaster with Comcast SportsNet New England, is sick and tired of hearing fans dog his talent, and that of other players who sit at the end of an NBA bench.
While speaking on ESPN Chicago radio, Scalabrine described a challenge which he has issued to fans in Boston:
“In Boston right now, we have this challenge going out. I do a radio show out there, and there are people on the street that really believe they can beat me. So we’re doing tryouts for the top 10 people in Boston to play me one-on-one.
“And we’re playing to 11. And we’re gonna film it, everything. The reality of people and what they think NBA players are like. I’m the last guy on the bench and I will kick your butt if you’re out on the streets. It’s just the way it is.”
Quote:
Tell me you wouldn’t want to watch this? People always joke about the scrubs of the NBA, and how outmatched they look at times. Regardless, they, like Scalabrine, are on an NBA roster. That’s not easy to do.
While there wasn’t many nights over crazy production from Scalabrine, he did manage to have a performance or two, most notably was Game 5 of the 2004 Eastern Conference Semifinals as a member of the New Jersey Nets. He was 6 of 7 from the field, including 4 of 4 from beyond the arc in a triple OT win.

I can't wait to see this. They should also do a full-on, regulation game of scrubs vs. the NCAA champs.

Even Scalabrine will beat the average joe from the streets. I base that just on the height factor alone.

Not only that, he's not a half decent three-point shooter. Sure, there might be some undiscovered phenom or streetball player capable of beating him and playing in the Association, but must won't.

Scalabrine must not understand the criticisms that were directed at him. It was never that he wasn't better than a guy off the street, it's that he was terrible by NBA standards.

I don't have to be able to land a triple salchow myself in figure skating to tell you that the girl who just fell on her ass three times trying it sucks, nor do people who review films have to themselves be filmmakers.

That's not how criticism works.

Brian Scalabrine: A man of below-average NBA talent, and it seems below-average intelligence as well.

This would be fun to see, but he's right. It's not easy making it in an NBA roster. I believe he will be any street baller any day.

He will get hooped by someone. Likely a smaller, quicker guy taking him off the dribble. It doesn't mean the other guy is better just that the other guy is a bad match up for Scalabrine.
