Paul Pierce is Superman. KG volunteered to be Batman. So it seems like the Celtics are turning into the Justice League somehow. And in light of dueling Brian Scalabrine articles in the Globe and Herald today, I figured we should bring Scal into the action… as Aquaman.
I think it fits. Aquaman is always called useless, but he's really not. He's just not useful in every situation. However, if you put him in his element, he's very effective. Same with Scal. I've been trying to tell everyone that he doesn't suck. But as we've seen in the past few games, he can do OK in the right situation.
Scal hit some big shots in both Toronto games, and he'll bust his butt on D. Yes, sometimes he'll try to do too much… which usually leads to a foul… but Scal will do his job, especially when surrounded by the rest of the starters, and he'll do it with a level of energy that actually sets an example for everyone.
