Ray Allen recently appeared as a guest on James Posey’s podcast “The Posecast,” during which the legendary sharpshooter talked about what it was like facing Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan for the first time in the NBA. Allen, who began his NBA career with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1996-97, said he was scared to death facing Jordan. “My second game of my rookie year preseason, we played against the Bulls in the United Center,” Allen shared. “So imagine that. As a 21-year-old kid, you’re playing against MJ. You know, I was scared to death…and I’m on the floor stretching and he runs on to the floor. I had to look up. It was like this is so surreal to me that I’m sitting here on this court right now and I’ve watched this, you know, for the last 10 years of my life. “So I’m like I’m rooting for him against me.”
Chris Bosh: Thankfully, we brought our A game; and when I say we, I mean everyone: Bron owned the boards, Ray peppered in the outside shots while D assisted, and Rio started cooking. I focused on things closer to the rim, fighting for rebounds on both ends of the court while putting up shots I felt confident in. They were falling—a lot of ours were. When you feel like your own game is slotting into a steady rhythm, it’s usually because the same is true of the rest of the team. But the score was still close at the half, so the feeling in the locker room was like that of a business meeting: sheets being passed around, some guys talking, some silent, all of us staying focused. In the finals, if you’re up ten, you want to win by twenty. We spent the rest of the game pulling steadily ahead, until we did exactly that.
Justin Kubatko: CJ McCollum made his 1,000th career 3-pointer this afternoon. He reached that mark in his 474th career game. Only six players have done so faster: 1️⃣ 369 – Stephen Curry 2️⃣ 372 – Klay Thompson 3️⃣ 385 – Damain Lillard 4️⃣ 457 – Dennis Scott 5️⃣ 460 – Bradley Beal 6️⃣ 473 – Ray Allen
Ray built his career with 10,000 hours or more of imposing order on chaos. Missed shots tend to feature randomness: feet weighted atypically, elbow tilted out, a sightline obscured by a defender. Thanks to an elaborate practice regimen, even by NBA standards, Allen had learned to tame the noise, to keep things consistent no matter the circumstances. Allen comes from a rough childhood. In his book “From the Outside,” he remembers going to school without lunch and intervening when his dad came home late and was rough with his mom. And, like the character Jesus Shuttlesworth he played in “He Got Game,” he remembers resolving that hard work would be the cure. In a military town where you could get fined for imperfectly groomed lawns, Allen made a killing with his lawnmower while other kids were playing.
