Ray Allen through the years
He Got Game
Allen extended his fame beyond basketball with the release of the 1998 Spike Lee film "He Got Game." Allen starred opposite Denzel Washington (left) and played Jesus Shuttlesworth, a high school basketball player from Coney Island, N.Y. who faced many temptations as he made his decision on which college to play for. It's really not a basketball movie, but the basketball scenes are fantastic and Allen plays the role well. Ironically, the character Allen plays is loosely based on NBA player Stephon Marbury, whom Allen was traded for on draft day.
