The Miami Heat will put nicknames on the back of their jerseys for select regular-season games over the next few months, and Ray Allen is bringing back a classic movie character for his jersey.
New York-based actor and filmmaker Spike Lee has unveiled the first photo of Allen’s “Jesus Shuttlesworth” jersey from the popular sports movie “He Got Game.” Allen was one of the main characters (Jesus Shuttlesworth) in the film, which was written and directed by Lee and hit theaters in 1998.
Heat players will reportedly wear nickname jerseys in four games this season, including the Jan. 21 matchup against the Boston Celtics in Miami.
Check out the J. Shuttlesworth home jersey in the photo below.
