The saying goes, like father, like son. In the case of Boston Celtics Rasheed Wallace and Ray Allen, like mother, like son would be more apt.
In a charity basketball game Saturday in Orlando, which pitted NFL moms vs. NBA moms, Ray Allen’s mom, Flo Allen-Hopson, won MVP, while Rasheed Wallace’s mom was ejected after being issued two technicals. No, I’m not kidding. I wouldn’t make this stuff up– it wouldn’t be believable.
Flo Allen-Hopson was like a young Gary “The Glove” Payton out on the court. She pressured the ball all across the court, running from woman to woman–whomever had the ball– thefting the NFL moms, or deflecting passes with her quick hands. No word on what caused Sheed’s mom to pick up two technical fouls in a charity game, but I’m sure it was the typical loudmouth Sheed stuff.
