Congratulations, Ray Allen

Ray Allen

Ray Allen hit two 3-pointers in the first quarter against the Lakers last night, breaking Reggie Miller’s career record of 2,560 3-pointers and establishing himself as the best 3-point shooter in the history of the game. Ray embraced Reggie Miller on the sideline as well as his mom and his family, and even received daps and a congratulatory slap on the behind from Kobe Bryant. Bryant, who entered the league in the same draft class as Allen, called Ray’s stroke “water” and reflected on Allen’s ability to play at a high level for so many years. Kudos to Kobe for being a class act.

As a fan, this record feels particularly good. It’s authentic (See Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds). Ray has been an absolutely model player for the NBA throughout his career, and is one of the most highly thought of players in the NBA. I was at a Boston bar for the game, and I can’t tell you how excited fans were for this record.

Keep it going Ray. I have a feeling you’re going to make a couple big shots in the playoffs this year…
