Ray Allen Announces Retirement


Ray Allen, via the Players Tribune has announced his retirement. The retirement comes after nearly 2 years of him being away from the game. Allen penned a letter titled “Letter To My Younger Self” as part of his retirement announcement. Allen’s announcement is available to read on the following link.


He is retiring from the NBA after playing for 19 seasons for the Bucks, Sonics, Celtics and Heat.  Allen has not played since the end of the 2013-2014 season, but kept himself in shape. That led to rumors constantly these past two seasons about him possibly joining a contender that needed a three point specialist. But the idea will now be laid to rest.

His career will be cemented by the two championship rings that he obtained, being the all time leader in three point shots made, and by hitting arguably the biggest shot in NBA history in game 6 of the 2012-2013 NBA Finals with Miami.

Ray “Jesus Shuttlesworth” Allen will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame one day. There is no doubt about it, good luck on life after basketball Ray.
