Ray Allen: Publicity Whore?

Interesting article today by Chris Forsberg on ESPN.com about Boston’s Ray Allen lack of 3-point attempts Monday night against the Bobcats. Instead of tying or breaking Reggie Miller’s 3-point field goals made record in meaningless game against a bottom feeding Easter Conference team, Allen seemingly set himself up to accomplish the feat tonight. Why tonight? Perhaps because it’s a nationally televised game versus the defending champion Lakers, and oh yea, Reggie Miller will be there calling the game for TNT.

Maybe the former star of Spike Lee’s “He Got Game” takes after his mom. She clearly likes the spotlight and is often seen acting like a cheerleader every time her 35 year old son scores. I don’t recall her having courtside seats and getting this much TV time when Ray was playing in Seattle and Milwaukee. Anyway, use the break in the game when the Celtics celebrate the record breaking shot to get a sandwich or go to the bathroom.
