Nice moment tonight in Boston when Ray Allen sunk a wide open three-pointer, the 2,561st of his career, to break Reggie Miller’s all-time record. The definition of classy player, Allen was as gracious and humble as you’d expect him to be when he did it: until the whistle blew on the next possession, he didn’t react much differently than he has for the other 2,500 makes. Glad I caught it happen: this guy is one of the somewhat few players in this league you can always feel comfortable rooting for on an individual level, regardless of how you feel about the team he’s currently playing for. Nice job, Mr. Allen, and well deserved.
