Ray Allen is one of the most accurate three-point and free-throw shooters in NBA history. He is a 10-time NBA All-Star and won NBA Championships with the Boston Celtics (2008) and Miami Heat (2013), playing key roles in decisive moments of both title runs. Allen, a consensus All-American at the University of Connecticut and No, 5 pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, was also a member of the United States’ gold medal-winning team at the 2000 Olympics.

Ray holds the NBA record for career three-pointers made (2,973). During the 2002-2003 season, he won the NBA Sportsmanship Award which “exemplifies the ideals of sportsmanship on the court with ethical behaviour, fair play, and integrity.” In addition to his many contributions on the court, Ray has acted in two films, including a lead role in the 1998 Spike Lee film He Got Game. He has also served as NBA Spokesperson for the Jr. NBA / Jr. WNBA youth basketball support program and was selected as NBA Spokesman for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
