Ray Allen, one of the most dangerous shooters in NBA history, announced Tuesday he's officially retiring from professional basketball after 18 seasons.
Allen, who is 41, broke the news in a letter to his 13-year-old self published on The Players' Tribune — the same place Kobe Bryant and Paul Pierce announced they were hanging up their sneakers.
Allen will definitely be remembered for having one of the sweetest shooting forms in basketball. And with that jumper, he knocked down nearly 3,000 career 3-pointers, making him the NBA's all-time leader.
