I saw this court side chat between Allen and Burke on TV. That was a real class act for Allen to talk with a young rookie on the opposing team like this. Kudos to Allen!

Pretty impressive for Ray Allen to take the time.

These young guys would add alot more productive years to their NBA careers if they would take notice and implement the routines and hard work of the upper tier established veterans like Ray Allen.

I met Ray Allen briefly at a Hampton Inn in Seattle back when he played with the Sonics. He and the rest of the team came walking through the lobby late at night after they had got back from a practice at the old Key Center. He was kind enough to stop and say hello/respond when I said hello to him.

Hopefully Trey and a few other youngsters will attempt to emulate the stars with staying power in the league. Work work work and who knows how good you can become if you have the talent and desire.

Glad Burke got the brief chance to gain some insights from perhaps the best 3 point shooter of all time.

Yeah. I was struck by Allen taking that time to mentor the rook.
