Denzel Washington has been in several Spike Lee movies and ‘He Got Game’ left a print on how it is to be a star athlete from the hood who has potential to make it to the NCAA and/or NBA. Former NBA star Ray Allen played the role as Jesus Shuttleworth but Washington admits that another NBA star almost took the role – TMac.
“I just remembered he hasn’t made any money yet, so he had this suit on, I remembered this suit being a little shiny, like it had been ironed a lot … Tracy McGrady was one of the kids that they were thinking about”
At the time of this 1998 film, McGrady wasn’t the NBA All Star he end up being.
One thought on “Look Who Almost Took Ray Allen’s Role as ‘Jesus Shuttleworth’ in “He Got Game””
Did Josh Norman just put Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott in the same sentence? That’s laughable: https://nflbulletin.com/
