STATEMENT FROM NBRPA REGARDING RAY ALLEN’S RETIREMENT

November 3, 2016

On behalf of the entire NBRPA family, we want to congratulate Ray Allen on a great basketball career. Ray will go down as one of the greatest shooters in NBA history and leaves behind an amazing legacy that includes his unforgettable series-saving three pointer in the NBA Finals versus the San Antonio Spurs that helped Miami to overcome a 3-2 deficit and go on to win the NBA Championship. We thank Ray for the wonderful memories and impact he left on the game and wish him well in his post-basketball career.
