I remember thinking how great it was Ray finally had at least a decent center in Jerome James and how the team was finally coming around the corner after that spurs series in which they played them the tightest of any team in that years playoffs ...then if memory serves correct....James went back to sucking it up..he raped NY for some millions....the coach Nate McMillan was not retained for some reason..and ray was back to playing with Super Scrubs...
Ray played with some average / pretty good talent in those seattle days (young lewis, ridnour, Collison, Radmanovic) but had HORRID centers in an era of the western conference where u needed something against Shaq and Duncan.
This video really shows the greatness of PRIME Ray Allen.....and even then he was still more explosive in Milwaukee.....
