Ray Allen Misses Saturday Media Availability

It takes complete focus to win the NBA Finals (just look at Kobe Bryant’s face during and after games this year and last year), but unfortunately for Ray Allen, something’s come up in his personal life. As NBA.com reported: “Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen missed Saturday’s media session for the NBA finals because of a family matter. Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said Allen arrived at the TD Garden in time for practice. Twiss said Allen was given permission to miss the session on the off day before Sunday night’s Game 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers. No other details were available. Allen’s son, Walker, was diagnosed with diabetes during the 2008 finals and Allen nearly missed Game 6 when he flew home separately from the team to be with his son.”

Allen is shooting at a 44 percent clip this postseason.

    family and health are so much bigger than basketball. issues like this, and manute’s horrible health problems, make all of our posts about the c’s vs. the lakers look silly and quite insignificant. good luck, allen family. peace.
