RAY ALLEN SETS NBA 3 POINT MARK
Walter Ray Allen did it! Although his Boston Celtics hosted and lost to the visiting LA Lakers, last night in Boston was a very special night. Fans of the Boston Celtics and Ray Allen must have been happy (I was) when Walter Ray hit the tie breaking three that put him one past Reggie Miller's previous three point record and propelled him into history. Here he is, Ray of Hartford, Connecticut...
"What I thought about is: 'Is it really going to happen? I know I only needed two 3s, and on any other day, any other game, it seems like it would happen just like that. I wouldn't have to think about it. But that second three, it seemed like it was slow motion for me, because I saw the whole thing develop. As I've gotten older, I play the game and I can see it, somewhat in a second motion so to speak. Where the ball kind of comes slow, like somebody is slow-motioning on TV. That's exactly how it felt, because the minute we got the stop and Rajon Rondo got the ball, in my mind it just started, and I just said to myself, 'This is it.'
You did it and we're happy, Ray. Thanks for everything...the UCONN years and your NBA years, including those with my favorite hoop team, THE GREEN. We love you. Keep it going.
