Brian Scalabrine — 2008 Boston Celtics
Brian Scalabrine was one of the NBA’s most recognizable and beloved 12th men. He lived so long at the end of the bench he could have set up shop and built a home for himself there. The Ginger Ninja was an early watered down version of a stretch big, with a soft touch on a decent jumper.
Scalabrine only played for three teams in his career and actually played real minutes for two of them. He averaged just over 10 minutes a game off the bench for the 2008 Celtics, a valuable end of the bench big man for a roster that came together in a hurry after adding Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.
