NBA legend Ray Allen is known for his years playing with the Milwaukee Bucks with Glenn Robinson and Sam Cassell; the Seattle SuperSonics; the Boston Celtics with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and of course the Miami Heat with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Allen won two NBA championships — with the Celtics in 2008 and with the Heat in 2013. He retired from the league in 2016.
Now 47 years old, Allen recently received his college degree (a Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies) from the University of Connecticut, where he was a student and played basketball for three years before being drafted in the first round of the 1996 NBA Draft.
(Allen holds the title of “most single season 3-pointers made in UConn history.” In 2019, his number 34 jersey was retired by UConn.)
Allen’s fans are showering him with praise (“An inspiration to others!”) and words of congratulations (“Way to go, Ray!”). One Huskies fan jokingly asked, “Do he have any eligibility left?”
Note: The UConn Huskies won the 2023 NCAA Tournament under coach Dan Hurley. Allen had front row seats — see above with his sons.
