Ray Allen to Participate in 3-point Contest

That guy is pumped.

Well, the cat is out of the bag.

Speaking with reporters prior to Friday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks, Ray Allen was (obviously) asked about the 3-point contest. That's when Rajon Rondo came over and asked him if he was in the contest, of which Allen answered, "Yeah. I thought you all knew?"

He thought reporters in the room already heard the news, but they hadn't. According to Allen, he was asked last week in Washington, DC if he would participate, of which he agreed to. That means even if Allen had not made the All-Star team he was going to travel to L.A. with Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Rondo.

I made the mistake of asking him if he was "up for the challenge" that Pierce presented to him via twitter about going up against him in the contest.

Poor choice of words!

"What do you mean am I up for the challenge?" Ray asked smiling. "Im up for any challenge. I'm always up for a challenge. When would you think I'd ever back down from shooting? Never."

I'll go find my seat now. Thanks.
