Ray Allen returned to UConn last night, championship ring in tow. In this short clip, filmed by a student, he talks about how Red Auerbach was going to draft him with the 6th pick, and the anxiety of Draft Night back in 1996. Ray also spoke with the media about the lockout, working out at UConn and the possibilty of the Huskies leaving the Big East.

    Great post- I wish there was more. Starbury’s family wouldn’t give up the swag, hilarious! Ray is all class, and all these years later- still the best player out of that draft class (no disrespect to the player known as AI).
