Maybe he read Brian Scalabrine’s meager stats in an 11-year NBA career: 3.1 points and 2 rebounds per game.
But whatever moved the person in the video below to think he could get the better of the 43-year-old former Nets, Celtics and Bulls player, he probably regretted it.
Viral video reported by several outlets shows the 6-foot-9-inch Scalabrine accepting the guy’s challenge of a one-on-one and shutting him out, 11-0. The challenger does not appear to be a slouch by any means, and he made some nice defensive plays on Scalabrine.
But Scalabrine, a former college star at USC, survived more than a decade at basketball’s highest level by doing something right. And despite being nine years removed from the NBA, he flexed his skills over his challenger.
