Brian Scalabrine, wearing green and tearing it up. Just like…. yea, we’re not sure either.
But this video (via Sportando) is just that — Scalabrine is playing for Benetton Treviso in the Italian league and tearing it up. I would swear I even saw him create his own shot in there somewhere. Say this for Scal (last seen with Chicago), that is a pretty quick release and as a big who can step out to the arc he is a good fit for the European game. So good on him.
Still, can’t wait to see him sitting on an NBA bench again. Right Celtics fans?

Sources told ESPN.com the Bucks think Middleton, who suffered a hamstring tear just days before the season began, “has a chance” to return to the lineup during a three-game homestand next month before the All-Star break.
Whether Middleton ultimately makes his season debut before or after the All-Star Game, he is expected to be kept on a minutes restriction as he eases way his back from the injury, sources said.
The Bucks have started Tony Snell, who has held his own as an outside shooter. But Middleton will upgrade Milwaukee on Snell’s biggest strength and provide massive defensive improvement. After a strong start, the Bucks have really struggled lately on that end.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has led Milwaukee to a 20-21 record, though the team is better than its won-loss mark indicates. The Bucks will be even better with Middleton, who will rival Jabari Parker as their second-best player and fit seamlessly.
