I call shenanigans. First said it here: https://www.si.com/nba/2015/11/17/brian-scalabrine-celtics-lakers-warriors-usc-red-mamba-kevin-garnett
"When he transferred to USC after redshirting his sophomore year at Highline, Scalabrine arrived in Los Angeles in great condition. â€œI ran a 4:45 mile. For a 6â€™9â€â€‹â€‹, 230-pound guy, thatâ€™s pretty fast,â€ he says. â€œLike [Kyle] Korver does or Ray Allen or J.J. Reddick, they donâ€™t beat people with quickness, they just beat people because theyâ€™re in ridiculous shape.â€
He doubled down on it in a podcast I saw linked to today: https://twitter.com/ByJayKing/status/887697779958665216
I'm not buying it. I'm sure that he was in good shape but the idea he was time-trialing on the USC track...meh.
