Former NBA player and current Celtics broadcaster Brian Scalabrine had some fun last week with the notion that an average player off the street could beat him one-on-one. In a contest organized by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich show, Scalabrine easily beat four challengers who applied to take on the 11-year NBA veteran.
“They’re all good basketball players,” Scal told Toucher and Rich Wednesday. “People just don’t understand the size and speed and strength of anybody in the NBA.”
“I’m not trying to prove anything with all this,” said Scalabrine. “I like to have fun, I like to play basketball. I never thought that [proving myself] was what this was about.”
