    Cause it's definitely not talent by far, yet he manage to make it in the NBA 9 straight years and going! He even been in the league over half decent players like Stromile Swift, Pop mensah- Bonsu, and Antoine walker (Just to name a few) who cant even manage to stay on teams in the NBA, hell even Ryan Bowen would still be more productive than him. He makes about 2 mil a year, about as much as Chuck Hayes I believe who is far more valuable than he is.

    Yet, he's a fan favorite, Celtics fans consider him like a Jackie Moon lol and is pretty funny

    And He does not definitely play smart.

    Scalabrine is the Human Black Alto singing Fat Lady that's why he's still in the league. When he steps foot on the floor you know someone has won. He fills a need and I am thankful for his contributions.

    Are you really confused why he was a fan favorite in Boston? It's not that hard to figure out. He was the only white guy on the team for a number of years and Boston is still a pretty racist city.

    He's by far a better shooter than Ryan Bowen ever could.

    Bowen is much more aware of his limitations then. RyBo (who I have often called the worst player in the league) is a career 46% shooter. Scal is only a career 39% shooter (and that's not just from three)!

    That is the funniest mixture of highlight videos I've ever seen. I'm 2 weeks from moving to Chicago, and he will be my favorite player!

    I thought he was back with Boston when some goofy white dude attempted a really ugly shot against us. I had to check and it was Luke Harangoofy, guess he took Brian's place then. :grin:

    I don't think Boston loves B.S. to push forward a pro-white agenda...


    dude is just a guy who is fun to root for. That dance he did after the Bill Walker dunk was hilarious.
