white mamba

Chicago Bulls color commentator Stacey King is excitable. A visit to his soundboard webpage and clicking on "splash!" a dozen or so times will confirm this fact. So it comes as no surprise that a majestic swooping lay up by Brian Scalabrine over E! superstar Kris Humphries in the second quarter of a lopsided Bulls/Nets tilt would produce a memorable call.

For you that just watched that clip and still do not trust your ears...here is a transcript.

King- "OOOHH, SCAL! THE WHITE MAMBA! DON'T DO 'EM LIKE THAT! DON'T SHOW THEM THE VERSATILITY! Show one side and go to the other. Boy that boy is smooth, Funk."

Scalabrine averages 1.4 points and 6.5 enthusiastic high fives off the bench per game. He's pretty much that guy you would make in create a player mode in a videogame after you've been huffing paint.

The White Mamba is pretty harmless these days, but that wasn't always the case. As a Pistons fan, I looked on in horror as Scalabrine's dominance put the Nets one game away from eliminating the eventual 2004 champions in a classic game that went into triple OT. Check out this line from that article,

"Scalabrine made all four of his 3-pointers, including one that gave New Jersey a 122-118 lead with about 40 seconds left in the third overtime."

See, Scalabrine can be cold blooded, like a mamba.

Brian Scalabrine made the play of his career last night (Video)

  Brian Scalabrine with the reverse lay-in! At first, this is a play guys like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant make routinely, so to the casual observer this might not be much. But what makes this play impressive is that it comes from the White Mamba. By his standards, this is probably the greatest play he’ll ever make in his life. The phenomenon of Brian Scalabrine is remarkable...

by Brendan Bowers / @StepienRules The 10-year NBA veteran Brian Scalabrine was eating a salad over by his locker just after his Derrick Rose-less Bulls squad hung a 39-point beat-down on the Cavaliers this past Friday in Cleveland. Scalabrine had checked into the game a few minutes earlier and exploded for 4 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block in eight minutes of work. I walked...

Kris Humphries Embraces the Boos: ‘I Love a Hostile Environment on the Road’

There are some athletes who play their best when the world is against them. Guys like Barry Bonds and Gary Sheffield embraced the bad guy role, and seemed to peak when everyone was out to get them. It sounds like Kris Humphries may be one of those guys. Humphries was already named the NBA’s most hated player, and he was booed beginning in the preseason. He says he enjoys it. “If...

Kris Humphries Dumps PR Team, Presumably Will Focus On Basketball Instead Of Sham Reality Divorce

I have to give Kris Humphries credit for accomplishing the impossible.  He replaced LeBron James as the most disliked player in the NBA.  Humphries has had to deal with getting booed every time he touches the ball when the New Jersey Nets play on the road.  Not because he predicted to win seven championships.  Not because he committed any crimes.  Not because he abandoned...
