Spike Lee is a legend of many talents. He’s a writer, director, actor, playwright and also a hardcore New York Knicks. His origins trace back to Brooklyn, New York so it should be obvious that his love for the Knickerbockers runs knee deep, which is why he is lobbying for 2-time NBA champion Ray Allen to join the The New York Knicks roster this Fall.
Spike and Allen’s relationship traces all the way back to 1998 when Ray Allen played high school superstar “Jesus Shuttleworth” in Lee’s classic He Got Game,” so it’s no secret as to why the prolific director would want Ray Allen to be in the Navy Blue and Orange uniform. Allen spoke with the Hartford Courant Newspaper in Connecticut about the situation.
“Spike Lee has been trying to recruit me,” Allen told the newspaper. “We’ve been texting.”
Ray Allen won a championship in 2008 with the Boston Celtics, and again in 2013 with the Miami Heat and although he’s now 41 years of age, he’s been known to keep his body in superior shape during the on and off seasons throughout his career. We’ll just have to see how this one plays out through the masses.
