Hassell, Scalabrine Prove Meaning of "Professional"

Trenton Hassell and Brian Scalabrine, one a current Net, the other a former, didn't come into the NBA with a lot of expectations. Seen as marginal players, they have succeeded by being professional on and off the court. What's the key? "I was taught by great vets to always be ready, always to work," says Hassell. "I’m not super mobile, but when I get out there, it’s OK," adds Scalabrine.
