ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Brian Scalabrine played parts of eleven seasons in the NBA. As a back-up power forward, Scalabrine seemed to make his most significant contributions off the court — on the benches, in the locker rooms. Scalabrine retired with career averages of 3.1 points per game to go along with 2 rebounds per game.

He also gave himself a funny nickname — The White Mamba — that endures to this day.
