  This is a elegantly mesmerizing short film on Ray Allen's pregame routine put together by Brian Babineau, the official Celtics photographer.  Once you hit play, you'll spend the next six minutes in awe of what Ray does to prepare for a game. Allen is a creature of habit.  It's the same routine every game.  It's the same amount of shots.  The same amount of steps.  The same amount of fist pounds after the dunk that always ends it all.  Ray Allen is a model of consistency, and that is captured pefectly by Babineu.  If for some reason the embedded video doesn't work, use this link.  Kudos to KWAPT for the find.
