I had this deadline column and the wonder of Tim and how awesome he is, grabbing this ring against this supposed dynasty in Miami and then I got to rewrite! What do you remember about that night and when Ray steps back and hits that three? Mike Breen: Well, a couple of things you never forget. You never forget the NBA bringing out the ropes, because the game is about to be over and they’re going to crown a champion that night. For them to do that ahead of time, they have to do that, I think that’s the first thing I remember. The second thing I remember, the fans leaving. And even though, I’ve seen too many games over time. I’ve seen Reggie Miller eight points in 8.9 seconds. I never understand, especially in a big game, how fans leave early, in a game that’s not decided. Because a lot of fans left. In fact, a lot of them tried to come back in. Our crew did a great job that night. They had a shot outside the arena of people trying to get back in but they couldn’t. The doors were locked.
Having gone through similar camps when they were growing up in Maywood, the Browns understand what it means to young people to have the attention of NBA players. “I remember going to Michael Finley’s and Tim Hardaway’s basketball camps and guys would come around and interact with us,” said Shannon. “They shook our hands, talking to us, bringing in guys like Ray Allen and Jamal Crawford. It’s huge that [the kids] get to feel the same thing because I know for me personally, they gave us hope.”
Over the past five games, Temple has made 18 of 40 3-pointers. “Most guys who are role players, they kind of stick in their role. He’s playing like Ray Allen,” Atkinson said following Saturday’s practice. “One of our emphases to him was, ‘We need you to shoot more 3s. You’re a hell of a shooter. Shoot more.’ But the ball-handling, the defense, another guy who is a better player than I thought he was.”
“I talked to Ray Allen during the summer,” Beal said. “He was in Milwaukee and Seattle and those years were rugged you know, they weren’t always great but he was one of the best players and he was always making sure those teams were in the playoffs or making some type of noise. “He was like, ‘Ultimately it’s your decision. The only person that can make Brad happy is Brad, and you have to what’s best for you,'” Beal said.
It wasn’t until Allen’s age-32 season with the Celtics where Allen finally won a championship. It’s not the career path many superstars are interested in nowadays, but Beal seems ready to make the most of the hand he’s been dealt in Washington. “It was kind of a no-brainer, just duke it out and make it work,” Beal said. “My leadership has to grow, it’s kind of growing every day, but I feel like I have a natural knack for it. “You can’t think about, ‘Is the grass greener on the other side? Are we not going to be as good here?’ You can’t necessarily think in those terms because you can always play ‘Devil’s Advocate’ on the other side, so for me, it’s just sticking to your guns.”
“I had a conversation with (Ainge) and I told him this was my last-ditch effort. I would’ve went back,” Allen said on WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni & Fauria” radio show. “This was when Kevin Durant was a free agent. He was thinking about going to Boston. And I said, ‘Hey, if you guys land Kevin, I would certainly look at lacing them back up one more time and try to make something good happen here in Boston.’
