Look Who Almost Took Ray Allen’s Role as ‘Jesus Shuttleworth’ in “He Got Game”

nbfs

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.
