Ray Allen on the Honor of Playing in the ASG

Just in case you hadn’t figured it out yet, Ray Allen is not Rasheed Wallace: “I’ve never really understood guys who’ve said they didn’t want to go, because it’s an honor,” Allen said last night before the Celtics faced the Sacramento Kings at the Garden. “It’s a privilege, not a right. I remember the first year I was chosen,” he said. “That feeling will always be in my mind. Being one of the best is always in my camp.”

    Ray is right, 99.999% of people who ever played ball won’t have the opportunity to play in that game. Also, 18 points a game on 50% shooting? He absolutely deserves to go.

    so he’s trying to make a bid to get in? Ray Ray was a closecloseclose 2nd to Lebron’s MVP last year. if it wasn’t for Ray’s 3 pointer explosion, bron’s magnificent game winning dunk would absolutely have no meaning.

    Ray was robbed of ASG MVP last year, and you could make a case for him being Finals MVP aswell.
    Dude should have two MVP’s and a chip right now!

    having an ASG MVP and a Finals MVP, isnt having 2 MVPs.

    Ray Ray got robbed! No ASG for him this year apparently. But hey, at least 3 magic players made it in (ridiculous)

    Sometimes you just need guys like Sheed to stay entertained.
