Heat guard Ray Allen told me that his decision to leave the Celtics was partly prompted by Boston's acquisition of Jason Terry. "I still felt like I had a lot of basketball left in me," Allen said, "so I wanted to go someplace where they're at least going to try to make me a priority." ... I asked Michael Irvin whom he would have taken first in the draft, Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III. "If I'm playing wide receiver, I want Luck back there," Irvin said. "If I'm just a fan, I would want RG3." ... Hall of Famer James Lofton weighed in on the logjam of receivers who have yet to reach Canton. "Andre Reed, Cris Carter and Tim Brown, I think they'll all get in," Lofton said. "Maybe you're going to have another wing with a lot of receivers. You don't have running backs dominating the way they used to." ... Brewers announcer Bob Uecker told me three of his 14 career home runs came off Hall of Famers (Sandy Koufax, Gaylord Perry and Ferguson Jenkins). Apparently those pitchers weren't happy. "I homered off Perry," Uecker said, "and he told me it was the worst day of his life. Not just his baseball life. His whole life."
