SC Video: Why Celtics love Ray Allen

By ESPNBoston.com

Ric Bucher talks on SportsCenter about Ray Allen breaking Reggie Miller's NBA record for career 3-pointers and the Lakers' win over the Celtics. He points out that Allen is known as "one of the classiest individuals in the history of the league" and how other NBA players, and especially his teammates, were genuinely happy for him on his historic night.

Bucher also discussed how Allen, after joining the Celtics, had to put his ego aside as a member of the celebrated "Big Three."

Said Bucher: Allen "was willing to change his game and essentially become a 3-point perfectionist in order to make this fit with the Celtics, and that's why they embrace him as they do."
