If you know anything about the NBA, you are sure to know who the legendary Brian Scalabrine is. The now-retired 11-year NBA vet was one of the league’s favorite underdogs and everyone loved to see him play. Sure, he may have been the human victory cigar, averaging 13 minutes per game in his career, but he has built quite a legacy for the teams he has played for.

Starting his career with the New Jersey Nets, Scalabrine became an instant sensation although he rarely left the bench, averaging just 6.3 points per game at the peak of his career.

If you don’t love Scalabrine, you may not be a fan of sports. The ultimate underdog and a player who was referred to by his fans as “The White Mamba” now has his own ESPN ’30 for 30′ episode. Even though it’s just a fake one, it needs to be made real.

As you can infer from the video, the quotes from players and the media were not meant to be about Scalabrine, but that’s what makes this video that much funnier. The big red head was made out to be a legend, which he is, in the video and players such as Kevin Durant and one of the best to ever play the game, Julius Erving, even made an appearance in the video.

It was great to hear these stars talk highly about Scalabrine even though they really weren’t. This is one of the funniest videos you will see all day and you can thank the White Mamba for the laughs.
