Instead of suiting up on a nightly basis for Tom Thibodeau as part of his Bulls coaching staff, Boston favorite Brian Scalabrine will suit up for CSNNE. Choosing the Boston TV gig over the Chicago coaching gig wasn’t easy… especially since he wanted to keep playing. But, sadly, no one wanted him.
“I had zero opportunities. Not some, but zero.”
I’m sure Scal’s reps will make it clear that he wants to keep playing, but I’m not sure any of those opportunities will arise. We already talked about the money drying up for players who are a lot better than Scal… so I think he’s pretty much done.
On the plus side, Boston’s irrational infatuation with Scalabrine can now continue. I mean… the reaction to the news just on Twitter has been insane. Boston is Scal’s home now.
Honestly, Scal… you can cut in front of Ray Allen’s caddy Donny Marshall in the line to succeed Tommy Heinsohn in the broadcast booth. Gimme Scal doing color on the road any day of the week.
