You’ve all probably seen Spike Lee’s 1998 hit basketball flick, “He Got Game”, starring the young, not-so-bald, Ray Allen. Ray portrays a high school senior who tops the country as the number one recruit, heading towards the collegiate level. Jesus Shuttlesworth is the smooth, yet conflicted young athlete, whose father (Denzel Washington) is currently serving prison time for the accidental death of Jesus’ mother. Jesus battles a gold-digging girlfriend, shady recruiters, family members with dollar signs in their eyes, and an internal battle of doing what’s right for himself and his younger sister. Enough of the refresher. It seems as though Ray Allen’s cast of teammates have decided to call Ray by his characters name, rather than his government. Mario Chalmers said that he and other Heat players call Ray, “Jesus”. “We do it sometimes during games when he catches a hot streak or he does something crazy,” Chalmers said. “We’re like, ‘Jesus.’ Sometimes he just looks over and smiles.”  Ray Allen is the NBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made, so calling him “Jesus” when he hits a hot streak might come more often that you’d think. We’ve all watched Ray get int he zone and knock down some of the toughest shots the NBA has to offer. He (Jesus, or Ray) brings a definite skill-set that the Heat will utilize in the post-season, and is one of the reasons many analysts have Miami repeating as NBA champs in 2013. The post Miami Heat players refer to Ray Allen as “Jesus” appeared first on Pass The Pill.
