Ray Allen is now a Hall of Famer. A tweet came out recently by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame official twitter account. Ray Allen had a remarkable career and is arguably the greatest shoot of all time. Allen was drafted in 1996 out of UConn and came into the league as a high flyer. But through hard work and dedication he evolved his game and started to master the art of 3 point shooting.

Allen went on to win the 3 point shooting contest back in 2001 and has a couple of more accolades under his belt.

  • 2x NBA champion ( 2008, 2013)
  • 3x Gold Medalist (1995 Summer Universiade, 2000 Olympics, & 2003 FIBA Americas Championship)
  • 10x All-Star ( 2000–2002, 2004–2009, 2011)
  • All-NBA Second Team: 2005
  • All-NBA Third Team: 2001
  • NBA All-Rookie Second Team: 1997
  • USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year (1995)

Allen played for 4 teams during his career and left a mark on every team he played for. He played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Seattle SuperSonics, Boston Celtics, and Miami Heat. He won 2 rings with the last 2 teams and had the most memorable 3 point shot in NBA finals history against the Spurs back in 2013 and till this day holds the record for the most 3 pointers in NBA history.
