During Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals, Ray Allen turned back time. 

The sharp-shooting 2-guard spent plenty of time throwing down vicious slams earlier in his career, but it's been quite a while since the 38-year-old managed to post a dunk like this.

Though it's not quite a poster, you can be sure that Danny Green isn't too happy. 

Did Allen get away with a bit of a stiff arm prior to the finish? Probably, but let's not allow such a thing to detract from the beauty of the veteran shooting guard rising up and slamming it home.
