Even though Brian Scalabrine played in the NBA for 11 years, even though Brian Scalabrine was a serviceable rotation player for much of his career, he’s still perceived as some giant-doofus-red-head-end-of-bench cheerleader. Well, no more, because the White Mamba has put a stop to that.
Though we can no longer watch Brian Scalabrine take the bench anymore, he lives on in our hearts, and wallets. And now he lives on in your computer too, as the famed White Mamba has finally joined twitter. REJOICE!
Brian Scalabrine is everyone’s favorite end-of-the-bencher. The White Mamba, they call him. That’s all good and well, but Scal’s career wasn’t exactly highlight-heavy. Still, the folks over at the NBA’s YouTube channel have once again proven that any man is worthy of a two-minute highlight package.
Semi-ironic basketball player Brian Scalabrine is, by all accounts, a good dude. Not a good ball player, mind you, but a nice guy who distributes quality high fives and is given a few garbage time minutes every once in awhile, because, what the hell, why not. Now he’s really trying to give us a hand by starring in a viral video for a website that wants to help lower your electric bill. It’s dumb. But hey, thanks for the tip, Brian. Video after the jump.

It’s a scientifically-proven fact that white benchwarming NBA players become crowd favorites more easily than any other type of player. Perhaps the best example of this category of player: the Bulls’ Brian Scalabrine, a.k.a. The White Mamba. And when he actually makes a good play…
With 2:43 left in last night’s romp of the Pistons, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau signaled for the Mamba. As in “The White Mamba.” As in rarely-used backup center Brian Scalabrine. And people lost. their. minds.
