Miami Heat Still Call Ray Allen Jesus Shuttlesworth
Even though he’s now a 15-year NBA veteran Ray Allen is still being thoroughly reminded of his roots everyday.
The cult classic film ‘He Got Game’ featured the young version of Ray Allen as the top College prospect in the country–Jesus Shuttlesworth.
As reported by USA Today the now veteran shooting guard is often called by his character’s name.Mario Chalmers stated.
“We do it sometimes during games when he catches a hot streak or he does something crazy,”
“We’re like, ‘Jesus.’ Sometimes he just looks over and smiles.”
Allen has certainly come along way since his Shuttlesworth days, and with him now being a sure-fire future hall of famer it makes the humble teasing by teammates that much more funny.
