It seems like just yesterday that Boston Celtics Hall of Fame shooting guard Ray Allen was getting his kudos from the then-shooting G.O.A.T. Reggie Miller as he passed the Indiana Pacers legend for the most treys ever sunk in a career.

Now, this season the tables have turned on the UConn product, with Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry trying on the crown for a time. But with the way 3-pointers are launched these days, even his reign in that role will likely not last long, as the shot popularized by Allen and Curry has become a high-volume staple of the modern NBA.

Allen recently joined the NBC Peacock show “Brother From Another” to talk his role in the rise of the shot, his thoughts on Curry’s current rise to 3-point dominance, and a number of other issues in today’s game and his personal life.

Watch the clip embedded above to hear what the Celtics champion has to say about the shot he helped pioneer and more.
