Reassessing: Brian Scalabrine

Chuck's Take:I've finally come around on Brian Scalabrine. First off, I give the guy a ton of credit for coming back and playing after suffering 3 concussions.

Reassessing: Eddie House

John's Take:When you play for 8 teams over an 8 year career, you're a "journeyman." But Eddie House seems to have found a home here. Eddie had a record setting season from beyond the arc. He put on some amazing displays this year.  He can get hot and explode for 30 points off the bench.... [More]
