For those of you who have conniptions whenever I have accidentally said "World Champions" in reference to a given NBA champion basketball team, keep in mind BRIAN SCALABRINE is the second-best scorer on his team in Italy. Yeah, yeah, I know there are far better international teams than the one he's playing on, but...just sayin'.And not for nuthin, the word "Scalabrine" rolls off the Italian tongue as if it were meant to...well, I guess that's an Italian name, so that would make sense.SCALABRINI MAGNIFICO!Maybe someday soon Scal will give a press conference like this in fluent Italian, while eating gelato?And while we're in Italy, might as well revisit the classic Bawful / ET Italy trip...
