Brian Scalabrine: NBA Player and Comedy Genius

Look Familiar

This folks, is one of the best pieces of Sports satire we may ever have read.

Brian Scalabrine, career 12th man for numerous NBA teams is returning to one of the teams he played for in years gone by: The Boston Celtics. Only this time it's as a broadcaster.

Ever the comedian and good-natured guy, Scalabrine decided to sit down with a writer--(ok, himself) and write a letter to the good people of Boston to explain his decision to come "home"....

Quoth the Scalabrine:

"I've learned a great deal in my time spent with four franchises...actually five if you count my stint in Italy because of the lockout. What was the purpose of the lockout again? I will always think of Chicago as my third home and Oakland probably as my fourth home...but not like downtown Oakland, more like the suburbs"

And yes, if you read the letter, which is too lengthy to post in it's entirety, you'll understand exactly who he is spoofing.

Yes, he did...

We have nothing but respect for guys like this. Guys who are thankful for the opportunity to live out a dream and self-aware enough to have fun with it.

Can't wait to hear him call a game...

Check out the "Scallenge" a segment from a couple years ago when the "Mamba" took on the challenge of some smack talking fans:

  1. I just love sports satire. Sports are meant to be fun and not taken too seriously. I'm looking forward to reading his entire letter. It seems really funny!
