Scalabrine Returns to Boston, LeBron-Style

Brian Scalabrine (CSNNE.com)

While there has been a lull in the Celtics’ offseason activity over the past couple of weeks, former Boston power forward Brian Scalabrine gave fans something to smile about with a parody of LeBron James‘s recent “I’m Coming Home” Sports Illustrated article. In a similar first-person piece published Monday on CSNNE.com, Scalabrine announced that he will be working as a broadcaster for Comcast SportsNet New England, to work with Mike Gorman and Tom Heinsohn during the upcoming season.

The White Mamba played five seasons in Boston, including the 2008 Championship year, and became a fan favorite despite averaging just 2.7 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. After the 2009-10 season, he followed former Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau to Chicago, where he played his final two years. After a short stint at CSNNE, Scalabrine joined the Golden State staff as an assistant, but was demoted to the D-League’s Santa Cruz Warriors amid reported differences with head coach Mark Jackson.

In his essay, Scalabrine made a point of dispelling the rumors of a conflict with Jackson, who was fired despite making the playoffs the last two seasons, and mentioned many of his former coaches and teammates. “I may have a press conference, and I am definitely having a party,” the article reads. “And all of Boston will be invited. And when we are done, we will still have a few months before we have to get to work.”
