MIAMI -- Brian Scalabrine always figured he would be at American Airline Arena for the Eastern Conference finals.

The veteran forward thought he would be playing for the Chicago Bulls, though, not as a guest analyst for CSN New England. That's the role the popular veteran finds himself in now after the Bulls got bounced in the first round, and he admitted Tuesday night that being back in Miami makes him think about what might have been -- both for this season and last year when the Heat knocked out the Bulls in five games. Scalabrine compared the way LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are playing over the past week to a pair of Hall of Fame Bulls.

"Yeah, probably since (Michael) Jordan and (Scottie) Pippen," Scalabrine said. "Shaq and Kobe, but Shaq and Kobe had different positions so they could kind of play off each other, these guys literally just take turns going at the other team and it's amazing to watch."

Scalabrine also hits on a number of other topics including the Bulls' season, the team's future, and his future in the NBA.


Nick Friedell caught up with Chicago fan favorite Brian Scalabrine in Miami on Wednesday night.
