Five years ago I had 3 max offers on the table, but I chose to come to Boston for peanuts (5yrs/15 million) to team with Paul and get Boston number 18. We did that (see video after the jump) and while I don't really need the max, I need to be able to feed my family. I have 12 red headed stepchildren many people don't know about. I also need to get some better threads. You've seen what I wear? Eventually I plan on opening the Brian Scalabrine Dance School for underprivileged redheads and that also takes loot.While Lebron is trying to bring Scalbrine to Cleveland, Dwyane Wade is pitching the "Dream Team" idea to Lebron and Scal, where the three of them would all sign in Miami for a little less. In this scenario, Wade's puppy dog Chris Bosh would be left out cold. Scal is hesitant to go to Miami though as he feels his pale skin might not survive the Florida sun.
Right now we're hearing Scalabrine is leaning to joining the New Jersey Nets, as he likes the Russian Billionaire's pitch of money, winning, and women. If the Nets were to get a commitment from Scal, then Lebron, Wade and Bosh would all fight over the chance to be his wingman, his Robin. Chicago, as usual, has struck out again in free agency and are looking to their Plan F, which is signing Ron Mercer and Brad Miller. I guess that's what happens when you break up a dynasty with the best player to ever play the game (Well at least until that point. *Editor's note* No offense meant to Scalabrine).
As opposed to the King with no Ring's hour circus show announcement on ESPN, Scal will be announcing his decision in a local liquor store. In return Scal has been promised Narrangansett beer for life for him and his 12 redheaded step children. We'll keep you posted if we hear any more on Scalabrine's choice. Wade, Lebron, Bosh and the rest of the basketball world wait patiently. JR 7/07/2010 03:55:00 PM Tweet
