White Mamba has retired

After failing to gain interest from any NBA teams this off-season, Brian Scalabrine has announced his retirement from professional basketball and has accepted a position as a colour commentator for Boston Celtics games next season. The news of Scalabrine's retirement sent the online NBA meme community into a tailspin with tributes flooding in from fans. Meme communities such as NBA Humor and NBA Laughters marked the day of tribute as the "Scalabrine meme palooza". The search has already begun of who community members think is the next "best" player in the NBA, so it will be interesting whether if Scalabrine memes will continue to flourish or fade out like many have already previously. But for now, tribute memes devoted to Scalabrine have begun circulating en masse.
