Celtics guard Ray Allen joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about breaking the NBA career 3-point record in Thursday's loss to the Lakers.
Allen said he enjoyed the run-up to his record-breaking night. While he was disappointed that the C's lost the game, he said he didn't think the spotlight on his achievement negatively affected the team. "I was concerned — so much attention and so much adulation going toward me, everybody was talking about this going into the night," he said. "But I thought that it worked out in our favor, because so much momentum went in our favor."
After breaking Reggie Miller's record, Allen went over and embraced the former Pacers star, now a TNT analyst. Asked if he would want someone to break his record someday, Allen said, "The human part of me says no, but I guess it depends who it is, who it ends up being. It's just like anything, when...
Former ESPN contributing NFL writer Jeremy Green, son of former NFL coach Dennis Green, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography Thursday in New Britain, Conn. Green is expected to receive a 20-year sentence and serve five years in prison before being released on probation.
Green, who worked as an NFL scout and director of pro personnel for the Browns before joining ESPN, was charged with sending sexually explicit photos and videos of a toddler to an undercover officer posing as a woman with three children and encouraging a meeting with the fake family. He was fired by ESPN after his arrest last July.

From the moment it left his hand, Ray Allen knew he had launched the shot that would put him in the record book. The 3-pointer that went through the basket in front of the Celtics bench gave him 2,561 3-pointers in his career, one more than Reggie Miller.
"When I got the ball and let it go, I felt so good behind it that once ball went in air I knew it was good," Allen said of his historic trey with 1:48 left in the first quarter.
It was Allen's fifth 3-point attempt on the night, after tying the record just three minutes earlier. He had two 3's rim out before the record-setter.
"That one, it was like, 'This is money.' It was definitely a magical moment," Allen said. "It was a great moment. I'll remember it the rest of my life. It's a moment that will stay with me forever."

Kobe Bryant scored 12 of his 23 points in the third quarter while Pau Gasol added 20 as the Lakers wiped out a 15-point first-half deficit and beat the Celtics, 92-86, on a night when Ray Allen became the all-time 3-point field goal leader in NBA history.
With the crowd in a frenzy from the start, the fans were sent into full-fledged pandemonium with 1:48 when Allen took a pass from Rajon Rondo on the fast break and drilled a trey from well beyond the arc for 3-pointer No. 2,561 in his likely Hall of Fame career. The crowd exploded and the Celtics rode the energy to a 45-30 lead midway through the second. Rondo finished with 12 points and 10 assists.
But the Lakers went on a 14-4 run to get back into the game before halftime. Then, the visitors opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run to take the lead. Bryant, who took only three shots in the first half, led the charge back and helped the Lakers to a 75-68 lead...
Ray Allen hit a 3-pointer from right wing with 1:48 left in the first quarter to pass Reggie Miller for the most 3-pointers in NBA history with 2,561. After the record-breaking basket, Allen went over and gave a hug to Miller, on hand courtside to broadcast the game nationally on TNT.
Allen tied the record with a trey from the left top of the circle with 4:15 left in the first quarter. The crowd rose in anticipation on each 3-point attempt by Allen on the night. Allen's first attempt came from the left baseline with 7:24 left in the first quarter.
Miller had held the record with 2,560 since retiring after the 2004-05 season. Miller posted the record over a span of 1,389 games. Allen needed just 1,074 games to pass Miller. Allen's first 3 came on Nov. 1, 1996, at Philadelphia, a game his Bucks won.
