Allen is Sweet as Sugar
Date: December 25, 2008
The Celtics traveled across the country to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day 2008. Celtics guard Ray Allen sported these green and red shoes with Sugar Ray on the heel. His nickname was fitting as Allen’s 3-point shot was one of the sweetest in the league! Despite Allen’s 14 points, the Celtics could not overcome 27 points by Kobe Bryant and fell to the eventual 2009 NBA World Champions, 92-83.
