One of the greats is hanging them up.


Brian Scalabrine - F/C - Bulls Brian Scalabrine has decided to turn down a coaching job with the Bulls and will instead be an analyst for CSN New England.
Scalabrine was previously rumored to be on the verge of joining Tom Thibodeau's staff in Chicago, but he's decided to opt for a career in television instead. His NBA days are over. "I had zero opportunities," he said. Related: Celtics

"I had zero opportunities," he said.


I do not believe this one bit. :man10:

I think there should be a one on one game between him and Adam Morrison just for the lulz. :man10:
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

No one has milked more from less. :bow: :bow: :bow:
Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

I'm shocked that he's 34, same as Kobe, I thought he was like 28, looks like a kid to me.

If I heard cheering for me and I was a bench player, I would feel insulted. Espicially if my teammates would do the same. Did this guy ever get a chance? I mean honestly. He had some bad highlights. But we can do the same for many superstar players.
