Spike Lee always seems to have something to say, but this is something with broad appeal among basketball fans: He and Ray Allen have talked about making a sequel to the 1998 movie, "He Got Game."
Lee wrote and directed that film, which starred Denzel Washington and a young Ray Allen.
Allen, who played Jesus Shuttlesworth in the movie, still has a desire to work as an actor in his post-NBA life. But right now, the big questions swirling around Allen or whether his post-NBA life has arrived or not.
Allen is currently being courted by multiple NBA teams and may sign with a title contender after the All-Star break, but he's currently undecided on whether he will play again this season.

As for "He Got Game 2," Allen has expressed interest in the past -- but only if the situation is right.
"Sequels to most movies are always fluff and not as good as the first," Allen said last year, when talk of the movie first came up. "But it's something we've been talking about for the last couple months. If we get a really good story line and are able to bring everybody back, then it would be something worth doing."
Lee's mentioning of the movie now might suggest that a good script has been written, or at least that talks with Allen have progressed. Either way, the seat is being kept warm for Allen and a "He Got Game" sequel.
