Ray Allen, the all-time UConn great and future Hall of Famer, is finally officially calling it quits.
He made the announcement via Derek Jeter's The Player's Tribune, which also announced the pending retirement of his former Boston Celtics teammate Paul Pierce as well as Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. You'll get to act in movies.
"Every single day he did the same routine, no matter back to backs, how exhausted he was", Lue said.
In his letter, Allen stated that he writes to his younger self as a man who is completely at peace.
" I wish I could tell you that it will get easier, and that you're going to blend in, and that it's going to be alright", Allen writes. Allen hit a three-pointer from the corner that tied the game and sent it to overtime, effectively saving Miami from elimination in the process. "You will become a husband, and the father of five incredible children".
Allen discussed the two titles he won, in Boston and Miami, and compared the two teams.
His first championship came with the Boston Celtics after he joined the team prior to the 2007-08 season to start the trend of "big three's" in the National Basketball Association.

For the technical challenge the bakers were tasked with making a Victoria sandwich cake but given no instructions. So it was a big moment in my life, probably the biggest so far. "I think it was a really good episode".
Allen's teams had very little postseason success before he was famously traded to the Boston Celtics in the same summer as Kevin Garnett.
Allen's record of 2,973 3-pointers made in regular-season games doesn't even count the one that was his most unforgettable.
Ray Allen was drafted 5th by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 1996 National Basketball Association draft before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks the same night. It's been a pleasure to watch Allen play throughout his career and his basketball excellence will be missed.
He averaged 18.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 1,300 games during a career in which he forged a reputation as one of the greatest 3-point and free-throw shooters the sport has ever seen with averages of 40 and 89.4 percent.
Spoelstra recalls the first time he witnessed one of Allen's shooting drills in Miami.
It's been two years since Ray Allen last stepped foot on an National Basketball Association court and it's now official that the two-time National Basketball Association champion will never do so again. "We were a few seconds away from winning the championship and we let it go", Ginobili said of Allen's back-breaking shot.
