A Celtics fan favorite is shipping out of Boston and heading to the Chicago Bulls to join long-time assistant coach Tom Thibodeau.
Although it may not be the last of Brian Scalabrine, as he’s contract is a non-guaranteed deal, the writing was on the wall this off-season as Danny Ainge seemed to have already marked a mini-Scal into the 15-man roster with second-round pick Luke Harangody.
After suiting up for 264 regular-season games and handing in the some gutsy playoff performances, the fan favorite is heading to the rival Bulls. After signing a five-year, $15 million deal in 2005, Scal was the new Walter McCarthy at the TD Garden.
But now with Harangody, and the additions of Shaquille and Jermaine O’Neal, there was just no room left on the bench for the former USC standout.
So if you can’t really remember how Scal played, or even what he looked like (pretty hard to forget), this clip may be what he’s most remember for in Boston.
