Highlight of the Celtics' Win: Brian Scalabrine

Sure, he only played in 48 games this season, averaging just 10.7 minutes/game, and the closest he got to actually playing in the NBA Finals was wearing the green and white warm-ups on the bench. But he still provided the quote of the night, when asked if it was difficult to not play at all in the Finals:

"Maybe now you could say I didn't play a second, but in five years, you guys are going to forget. In ten years I'll still be a champion. In 20 years I'll tell my kids I probably started, and in 30 years I'll probably tell them I got the MVP. So I'm probably not too worried about it."

Just add it to his playoff resume, which already included walking around Cleveland shirtless and recording a LeBron James diss-track.

UPDATE: Here's video of it, thanks to Awful Announcing (who else?):
