    On this episode of The Class of ’96, Bomani Jones looks at the life and career of Ray Allen. After being selected as the fifth overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft, Allen made more 3-pointers in his career than any player in NBA history, including perhaps the biggest shot in the history of the league. But even while he was helping to set the stage for the 3-point surge of the modern NBA, he was also a dangerous slasher and penetrator – and a Spike Lee collaborator.
