Video: Welcome back, Scal & Thibs

By Chris Forsberg



BOSTON -- During the first timeout of Friday's game between the Celtics and Bulls, Boston honored former assistant coach Tom Thibodeau and reserve forward Brian Scalabrine -- two members of the team's 2008 championship squad and mainstays during the Big Three era -- with a video tribute on the JumboTron.

With Aerosmith's "Dream On" playing, highlights from both Scalabrine's and Thibodeau's time in Boston was shown as the crowd roared in support. Afterwards, both were shown on the Chicago sideline, with Scalabrine receiving an extended standing ovation.

The Celtics did something similar when Eddie House returned to the Garden as a member of the New York Knicks, shortly after being dealt in a package for Nate Robinson last February.
