The NBA is finally debuting its "Nickname Jerseys" tonight as the Miami Heat are set to play the Brooklyn Nets. Although all eyes will be on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade this evening, Ray Allen will be wearing the coolest jersey--channeling his character, Jesus Shuttlesworth, from Spike Lee's film, He Got Game.
In the film, Denzel Washington, who plays Allen's dad, buys a pair of white/black/red Air Jordan XIIIs, and the name stuck, they became the "He Got Game" XIIIs. To commemorate this film trivia, Ray Allen is wearing these Jordans tonight, and the Heat shot a short video of Allen donning the jersey and lacing up the sneakers.
Will it be able to lead the Heat to a bounce-back victory after losing to the Knicks last night?
