24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Ten years ago today, as a member of the Seattle Sonics, Ray Allen dropped a career-high 54 points on the Utah Jazz. At the peak of his career, Allen was one of the most versatile players the NBA had ever seen. If you played him close, he’d blow by you and straight to the hoop. If you sagged off, he was going to splash a jumper or three. He was a nightmare to defend and he knew how to play the game better than most players in the league. Most of you probably remember Allen as a pure shooter for the Celtics and Heat later in his career, but during his prime he was one of the best scorers in the NBA.
