PLAYERS: Ray Allen
TEAMS: Miami Heat
Ray Allen has taken a beating on the court.  In his NBA career, Allen has taken all the normal abuse a player takes while running up and down an NBA court for 48 minutes per game.  After all his time in the league, Allen may finally be ready to call it a career.  Allen is contemplating retirement after this season.Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times had a chance to speak with Allen about his plans for the future.  While he is not specifically contemplating retirement after this year, he understands his time is coming.  It could be after this season or it could be in a  few years.“It’s possible, yeah,” Allen said when asked about retiring after the season. “Who knows what’s going to happen over the course of the summer? I have two years left on my contract. We’ll see how it goes.”Allen has been in the NBA since 1996 - the same year Kobe Bryant entered the league.  He is a ten-time All-Star and has an NBA Championship under his belt.  At this point, he is playing for the ,one of the game.  And that love may keep him around.  That and his ability to contribute.Allen is still averaging 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds per game this season with the Miami Heat.  He left Boston for a chance to play with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.  And for the chance at another championship.  With the Heat sitting pretty atop the Eastern Conference, the last goal is a real possibility.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Dwyane Wade looks back at full strength

MIAMI -- Fortunately for Dwyane Wade, there is plenty of wood paneling in the Miami locker room. So the Heat guard didn't have to go far when he said "knock on wood" and then did just that after his team's 123-116 overtime victory Wednesday night over Toronto at the AmericanAirlines Arena. Wade, who had left knee surgery last July, said early in the season it...

State of the Heat: Best is yet to come?

MIAMI _ Whether they're better in the first half of the regular season or in the second half really hasn't mattered when it has come to Miami Heat championships. In 2005-06, the Heat were superior in the second half.

2012-13 NBA Mid-Season Performance Awards

Who’s the best player on the planet? The misconception about the “All-Star Break” is that it signifies the midway point of the NBA season.  In reality it is only the official, unofficial (if that makes sense) half way point of the season.  By the time the All-Star game is played most NBA teams would have played between 52-55 games in a 82 game season.  It doesn’t take...

The Celtics miss Ray Allen and other teams recognize it

Ray Allen was obviously the hugest story of the off-season from a Celtics perspective. The aging veteran's contract was up and, after being delegated to a bench role, he decided to take his talents - along with a sizable paycut - to South Beach and the rival Miami Heat. Ray was called Judas and much worse before fans moved onto getting excited about Jason Terry and Courtney...
