Spike Lee Shows First Picture of Ray Allen's Miami Heat Jesus Shuttlesworth Jersey

(AllHipHop News) Ray Allen recently won his second NBA championship this past June but he may . According to Spike Lee, Ray Allen will in fact wear the custom Miami Heat jersey with his He Got Game nickname, Jesus Shuttlesworth, on the back for a few select games.

Lee directed the 1998 flick, He Got Game which starred a young Ray Allen and Denzel Washington. Lee shared the custom nickname jersey on his personal Instagram account and dubbed He Got Game “Da Greatest Joint About BALL Ever Made”:

The idea of NBA players wearing jerseys with popular nicknames on the back surfaced late September and is said to include jerseys from Lebron James (“King James”), Paul Pierece (“The Truth”) and others. Allen spoke to reporters back in September on his support of the idea and

We’re still kids, playing a kids’ game. Even though we’re now men playing a kids’ game, we still remember where we come from. Everybody had a nickname and it’s a way to let the fans in a little bit more.

There still is no word on which games have been selected to be used to showcase the jerseys.

      werd – I don’t want to see ‘HeHateMe’ on a jersey again…

        classic

        Spike Lee did get inspired to name his movie “She Hate Me” after Rod Smart’s jersey. Things coming full circle I guess.

      • RichFromBX

        don’t get me wrong, I actually liked ‘He Hate Me’ what I really meant was I don’t want to see poor attempts to top that. Rod Smart gets to drop the mic on ‘He Hate Me’ and no one should pick it up afterwards.

    I find the knickname on your jersey thing pretty lame

  • MrNoName2K

      • MrNoName2K

    Biggest TRAITOR in NBA history IMO… We STILL ain’t forgotten…

    • John Q. Public

      Miami is full of sell outs

      • dehova

      • John Q. Public

      • johnblacksad

        lol

      C’mon, now. He was with 2 teams before he even got to you.

      • 84stickupkid

        Yes, he was and he also jumped ship in the heat of battle to join the enemy which makes him a TRAITOR. Now he’s just LBJ’s(another TRAITOR) and more so D Wade’s b–ch, who owned his a– when he was with the C’s. Payback? Not for him, he couldn’t beat them so he joined them. That is not in the spirit of the game. Could you imagine Jordan jumping on the back of another superstar to win a title or how about Isiah Thomas joining Chicago in their rivarly back in 90. Or maybe Magic or Larry joining up in the middle of the Celtic Pride/Showtime Laker days. A title and guaranteed Celtic Hall Of Famer wasn’t enough, his greedy a– forgot about his Celtic brothers and abandoned them. Wrecked his Celtic legacy for his own selfishness. And yes we stood by this man when he shot 0-13 in the 2010 NBA Finals. He forgot about the fans who were loyal to him and gave some excuse the move was ”best for his family”. Didn’t have the guts to say, I’m leaving because I want to win another title with my opponent. Thanks for the memories Heat no#34 but this is what you left us.

        If Pierce can leave, Allen can leave…

      • 84stickupkid

        Pierce and KG got traded and they didn’t join up with an arch rival. Judas can do what he wants, he showed the type of man he is…a quitter. He quit on Boston but our fans NEVER quit on him, even when he was playin like s–t. The only time we start dumpin on him is when he joined the Heat. We supposed to congratulate him and cheer for somebody who didn’t have the heart of a true Celtic.

      • Live Well

        Is Doc Rivers a traitor too?

      • Live Well

        Lebron never would’ve left if Cleveland put some talent around him. All those teams you mentioned had multiple Hall of Fame players and coaches on there. Remember, it was KG who told Lebron not to waste his prime years on a bad team for the sake of “loyalty” because at the end of the day it’s about rings. Be glad Ray came to Boston in the first place and helped make you guys relevant again. He helped get you to 2 finals and a ring. He paid his debt to you, now you should just salute him and let him live.

      • 84stickupkid

        We loved him when he was with the C’s, but the way he joined his opponent will never be forgotten. His complete disregard for the Celtic fans saying he doesn’t care what they think of him leaving. Would have had no issue if he hadn’t joined an arch rival, any other teams was fine besides the Heat or Lakers. We bought his jersey’s and the like when his game sucked. We supported him through the tough times because he was OUR guy. And the disaster that was the 2010 Finals. So his debt was repayed? I think not. He can’t EVER repay his debt to the Boston Celtics. Would an opposing side be supportive of an enemy? Hell no. Every championship team has hall of fame players and coaches, so what the point? This man ran away from his competition by joining them. And none of the great teams and players I mentioned would do that because the game is all about COMPETITION. These fools got too much $ nowadays to care about that. Back in the day they had no multi million dollar contracts and the biggest reward were attained by playing hard. The 2008 championship is history and we cheered for no 34 when he shot for that title, just don’t expect us to cheer for him now or wish him well after he chumped out on us.

        I definitely respect your passion.
