Poor Ray Allen. In a new Kids Foot Locker commercial, the Miami Heat sharpshooter is just trying to ice his knee when, the next thing he knows, Chris Bosh (who thankfully has gotten some new socks) walks in with some kid named Tick Tock who starts taping him to the training table and then steals his name.
