After 16 years in the league, is it time for Ray Allen to finally leave the court? With two years left on his contract, Allen may finally be walking away from the NBA after this season. Speaking to JournalTimes.com, Ray Allen says that retirement isn’t too far away and that he knows when its time to walk away. “I don’t know when I’ll retire,” said Allen “I’d like to get through the year first. I feel great; my body feels good. I just got to get through.” “I’m at a point where I’ve been pretty successful and I’ve gotten to the point where I really understand the game and how to play it, but I’m not going to be that guy who just hangs on. At some point, I can let it go.” When asked will this be his finally season, he responded: “It’s possible, yeah,” Allen said. “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.” As long as Allen can do a final three shot on his last game, all will be well in the world.
