Former UConn Trainer Joe Sharpe Heads to Finals with Oklahoma City Thunder

Whether or not Ray Allen helps get the Celtics past Miami, UConn will be represented in this year's NBA Finals.

Joe Sharpe is the head trainer for the Oklahoma City Thunder, who dispatched San Antonio on Wednesday night to advance to the finals. Sharpe spent about a decade as a trainer at UConn and still manages to remain close to the program (even from some 1,500 miles away).

In fact, Jim Calhoun said on Wednesday evening that Sharpe had invited Calhoun out to Oklahoma City if the Thunder made the finals.

Calhoun said he probably would take Sharpe up on the offer (though it's hard to believe he'd be rooting against Allen and his hometown Celtics, should they advance).
