Ray Allen played for the Miami Heat just two seasons, but his imprint on the team remains forever entwined on a single basket he made at American Airlines Arena in 2013.

Game 6!!! Enough said!!! Congrts to my brother Ray Allen for being inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame!!! & THANK you for saving our Championship season. #Yousabadboy

Allen selection’s as the fifth pick in the 1996 draft ahead of Kobe Bryant, and fellow inductee Steven Nash, plus numerous forgettable choices illustrates how player’s dedication to their craft separates the men from the boys in NBA.
