I'm going to go ahead and file this under the category of 'Things I Didn't Know, But Probably Should Have': Ray Allen has a "mild" case of OCD. From the Boston Globe, via Don Chavez:
"[Allen's] pregame ritual does not waver: a nap from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., a meal of chicken and white rice at 2:30, an arrival time at the gym at precisely 3:45 to stretch. Allen will shave his head, then walk out to the court at exactly 4:30. He will methodically take shots from both baselines, both elbows, and the top of the key."
You know, for a player who has shot just 4-for-20 from the floor since the fourth quarter of Game 6, it's amazing he hasn't tweaked his routine. Try some pasta, Ray. Live a little.
