Ray Allen is 100 years old.
OK, maybe he’s only 38, but that might as well be 100 in terms of NBA age. Allen currently holds the record for most three-pointers made all-time, and he is viewed as a shooter–and a shooter only. Younger readers don’t remember a guy who had a complete game while Allen was making his name in the league, and that’s a shame.
Well, Allen gave us a blast from the past on Thursday night, when he took a pass during a fast break, and threw down a nice dunk over Kent Bazemore of the Warriors. Now, this wasn’t a high-flying jam that will cause anyone to jump out of their seat, but it’s impressive nonetheless.
For those who weren’t alive to see it, or can’t remember, here’s a reminder that Allen was in the 1997 Dunk Contest:
Kobe Bryant won the dunk contest, but Allen is the one who can still dunk (Kobe has injury issues). It may be 2014, but no one told Ray Allen that.
