Default Reminder to Ray Allen: Howard is not really superman

Surely if little Chris Paul can dunk on D12, old Jesus can drive down the lane without having to adjust his shooting arch all the time...

What Ray needs to do is hit some damn jumpshots, not try to drive the lane against Dwight Howard.

11.5ppg on 31%FG and 14% from downtown is just ****ing embarrassing for a guy who's supposed to be an allstar, and one of the greatest shooters of all time.

Well it's pretty damn hard to shoot over two guys don't you think? Orlando is doing the same thing Cleveland did last year and it's working. There leaving Rondo open and doubling Ray. When he comes off screens he has two defenders draped on him. Rondo is just going to have to start making them play him to get Ray some room to operate.

And props to JJ Redick chase Ray off the screens,he done a good job.
When teams show no respect to Rondo like that Ray being effect the most,don't forget Ray is 33 years old now,he is averageing the most mins out of all Celtic in the Playoffs and he started wearing a sleeve on his right knee.
who are you gonna guard?the guy can't shoot for sh!t or one of the GOAT shooter?and you have DH12 down low who play amazing help defense,people really throwing Ray under the bus here.

I'm 100% sure that sleeve is not for injury. It's for luck.

During the playoffs last year he was having bad games and went to a sleeve on the right arm, and started playing better. This year, he popped the left sleeve on after the bad game 1 that he had in the Bulls series.

So, I'm sure he put on the leg sleeve just for superstition, since he's had a few bad games this series.

When Pierce started wearing those calf sleeves last season, so did Ray. He eventually stopped, though. I agree that he is trying for luck with all the sleeves.

Not only should Ray pull a Chris Paul dunk, but he should pull a Chris Paul punch in the balls move

Ray already tried it himself against Anderson V. But I think Dwight actually has one.
