I did a little research and Brian Scalabrine played 11 seasons. The frist four with the Nets, the next five with the Celtics and the last two with the Bulls. In his 9 seasons with the Nets and Celtics he played in a higher percentage of games each season than Mirza has this year, with the exception of 2009 when he had a concussion. In each of those seasons he averaged more minutes per game than Mirza. This is not a knock on Scalabrine, I loved that guy. I just can't believe h e averaged more minutes per game backing up Kenyon Martin and Kevin Garnett then Mirza does backing up Reggie Evans and Kris Humphries. Why aren't they taking a chance with this guy, don't we see his upside to be greater than Brian Scalabrine? He's not a kid who we're waiting for to mature physically and mentally. He's a grown man with plenty of pro basketball experience, it's not NBA experience but it's still experience. I just can't take watching Reggie having his shots blocked and getting called for 3 second violations anymore, and I can't watch Humphries do his deer in the headlights routine anymore.
