HoopsHype Scott McClain rumors

November 23, 2012 Updates

Scott McClain, a native of San Juan Capistrano, Calif., was tucking into a platter of oysters and a Brooklyn Lager at Woodland on Flatbush Avenue on a recent Tuesday night, an hour before tip-off. McClain, who now works as the personal assistant to Josh Childress, a reserve forward for the Nets, was headed to his second game at Barclays Center. But he still couldn’t get his first visit out of his head. “I took a car service in from Weehawken, where I live now, and my driver pulled up and said, ‘That’s the arena,’ ” McClain recalled. “I was shocked. It’s extreme, a little out there. It didn’t look like it fits the neighborhood, that scrap iron. Where I come from, that kind of metal is used in prisons.” New York Times
