HoopsHype Brian Scalabrine rumors

The Yahoo Sports report Tuesday said Malone would go weeks without speaking to Jackson last season while serving as his lead assistant. The report focused on Jackson’s relationship with first-year assistant coach Brian Scalabrine, who was reassigned to a position with the Warriors’ NBA Development League team in Santa Cruz. “What goes on in Golden State right now is really none of my business,” Malone said Wednesday. “Whatever happened between coach Jackson and Scalabrine, that’s on them. I will say this: I had two great years in Golden State. I consider myself a very small part of the success we had last year. As for one thing that has been reported, Mark Jackson and I still have a relationship.” Sacramento Bee

Malone took exception to the notion he could go weeks without talking to Jackson. Malone also said he didn’t want any reports to become a distraction. “We spoke as assistant coach and head coach,” Malone said. “He hired me to help him, and that’s what I did there. I think the record that they have right now being 17 games over .500 speaks for itself, and Mark’s record as a head coach also speaks for itself. But that’s between those guys down there. I have enough problems up here in Sacramento that I have to try to deal with.” Sacramento Bee

But by the third quarter Wednesday night, fans at the TD Garden were reduced to cheering for a Tupac lookalike and an opposing assistant coach. In all fairness, the assistant coach was Brian Scalabrine, who became a legend of sorts during his Celtics tenure and should forever be loved in Boston. But a fake Tupac? Well, I guess chanting for him beat cheering for a home team that exhibited a poor habit of passing the ball to the wrong team, committing 22 turnovers during a 108-88 blowout loss to Golden State. Seriously, the crowd chanted for a fake Tupac. Booth Newspapers

The San Francisco Pro-Am has allowed fans and families to watch NBA players compete for free every summer during the past 34 years. Golden State Warriors assistant coach Brian Scalabrine hopes to change NBA rules so he can play, too. Scalabrine would like to play in the San Francisco Pro-Am next summer, but NBA rules state that coaches and front-office personnel cannot have contact with draft ineligible players. Draft ineligible players include participating college and high school players. It will be tough for Scalabrine to get the long-standing rule changed, but he plans to petition the NBA anyway, a league source said. Yahoo! Sports

The San Francisco Pro-Am's alumni list includes Gary Payton, Robert Parish, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Tim Hardaway, Damian Lillard, Jeremy Lin, Gilbert Arenas and Jason Richardson. Warriors guard Kent Bazemore played last summer. Projected NBA draft prospects who played in the San Francisco Pro-Am in recent years include Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon, Oregon sophomore guard Dominic Artis, California freshman guard Jabari Bird and Oakland Bishop O'Dowd High School forward-center Ivan Rabb, Rivals.com's third-ranked player in the 2015 class.

Scalabrine, like all Warriors assistant coaches, is not allowed to speak to the media. "It would be good for the league to have someone like him," said Al Gordon, who is coach of San Francisco Pro-Am's Bay Pride. "The Pro-Am is not about people coming in trying to recruit. It's about the fans and family coming in getting to watch good basketball for free, up close and personal. It would be a bonus. I'd absolutely want him on my team." Yahoo! Sports

Bob Myers has a fabulous job, with a salary that allows him to live anywhere he likes, visit any place he chooses. On this particular day, as soft clouds hover above the Bay Area, the Warriors general manager chooses state prison. He's not alone. Another member of the one-percent club, Warriors coach Mark Jackson, a former NBA star, also arrives at the joint. These two one-percenters are voluntarily rubbing shoulders -- literally -- with men serving time at this world-famous lockup on the north shore of San Francisco Bay. Myers and Jackson and Warriors assistant coach Brian Scalabrine, one year removed from playing in the NBA, are joined by other members of the Warriors organization, including assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, the son majority owner Joe Lacob.
