I didn’t even know Scal was playing overseas, so this video came as a surprise to me.  I wasn’t surprised to see him draining threes and even driving to the basket for a left-handed layup, though.  There’s a reason why he made it to the NBA, and isn’t his dancing abilities.  Scal was clearly at a huge disadvantage athletically when playing against NBA talent, and most importantly, he appeared to lack confidence.  Like, you know the dude can shoot the lights out in an empty gym, but when he’d finally get his chance in a game he simply couldn’t get the shots to drop.  I always felt his pain… I’ve had similar confidence issues when playing basketball… but I kinda laughed at him anyway.  It’s hard not to when he does something like this.  Plus, the guy is chubby on NBA standards, and he’s got bright red hair.  He doesn’t look the part, and goddammit it’s funny.

He’s fitting in much better in Italy, though.  Check it out…

Good for Scal!  Look at how he moves without the ball at the 40 second mark.  The screening and movement he used to get open on that play were a thing of fundamental beauty.
