We all know that Ray Allen still has game.
But does Jesus Shuttlesworth?
Allen, who currently plays for the Miami Heat and starred in the 1998 movie "He Got Game" as Shuttlesworth, said he and filmmaker Spike Lee have been in talks over the last couple of months about a potential sequel.
"Sequels to most movies are always fluff and not as good as the first," Allen said Tuesday before playing the New Orleans Pelicans. "But it's something we've been talking about for the last couple months. If we get a really good story line and are able to bring everybody back, then it would be something worth doing."
Allen said his Heat teammates sometimes call him Jesus.
"Not one day goes by where I walk in here and guys don't say that they didn't watch it last night or it wasn't on," Allen said. "I don't know who's in charge of delegating what gets on TV, but it seems like that movie's been on a lot the last two or three months."
Allen is averaging 10 points, 2.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds a game for the Heat this season. The 38-year-old shooting guard played a key role in the Heat's championship run last season, making a three-pointer that tied Game 6 of the NBA Finals against San Antonio with 5.2 seconds left.
