He Got Game. A movie that still today is fondly remembered as having a lasting impact on hip hop culture.
It’s one of the best basketball movies out. One of Denzel’s top roles ever. One of Spike Lee’s best joints. And of course, a young Ray Allen as Jesus Shuttlesworth.
Now, an old Ray Allen may reprise the role of J. Shuttlesworth. Says Allen before Tuesday’s game against the Pelicans:
Sequels to most movies are always fluff and not as good as the first. But it’s something we’ve [he and Spike] 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.
Now this would be all sorts of awesome, right? My guess for the premise would be something along the lines of Shuttlesworth as the mentor for his son, being there for him when his father Jake (Denzel) wasn’t, but imparting the same wisdom he eventually did. I dunno, something like that.
