“I’m a huge space guy,” Allen said Friday morning after shootaround as the Cavs prepared to host the Denver Nuggets at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. “I love just the idea of what they did and how many times they’ve done it successfully.” The Cavs have lost eight consecutive games, but Allen said he didn’t linger after practice Thursday at Cleveland Clinic Courts. “After J.B. said, ‘Bring it in,’ I rushed to the locker room to shower to get home to turn it on to watch every second of it,” Allen said of coach J.B. Bickerstaff.
During his first press conference with the Cavaliers, Jarrett Allen admitted he once built his own computer. So it didn’t seem surprising that the 22-year-old center was excited about Thursday’s landing of the Mars rover Perseverance, which completed its 293 million-mile journey to the Red Planet. NASA’s robotic explorer will search for signs of past or present life. Allen was active on Twitter, including a post that said, “Got to watch it launch in July. Now get to see it land today! #CountdowntoMars.” He also retweeted a few posts from the rover’s verified Twitter account.
