Two points for Allston

All through last night's Celtics-Rockets game Tommy and Mike kept mentioning a player for the Rockets named "Allston". Alas, even though Celtics Blog - Boston.com and some other sources spell his name with two L's, it seems that Rafer Alston is one L short of being another namesake of the famed painter Washington Allston. I tried the baseball, football, and basketball archives, looking for players named Brighton or Allston and found a lot of Alston's who made it to the big leagues (even one in the Baseball Hall of Fame) but there apparently still a 'first' waiting to happen.
