Ray Allen May Be Leaning Towards Retirement 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Dec 27, 2014 5:39 pm

Ray Allen remains undecided about whether he will continue his playing career, but he could be leaning towards retirement.


Allen has received interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Chicago Bulls, Washington Wizards and other clubs.


"I have now heard that Ray Allen is leaning towards retiring," said Brian Windhorst.

Lebron came close to zero titles without the clutch shots from Ray Allen and Mike Miller

Someone wants a team to love him, and to make him an offer he can't refuse.

Can't figure out which team is a clear-cut favorite for a free ride to another championship ring, probably.

that's because there's no clear cut ring team he can hitch his wagon to. if the cavs were in first place, allen would have signed

Most of the good teams are not a good fit. The Rockets are not a fit most likely at all this year now they got Josh Smith they might not do a trade. I think the TrailBlazers could be a good fit for Allen.

If he was confident Cleveland was a serious contender he would be there. Let the ring chaser retire.

I don't think he'll be able to guard anyone.

He's waiting to see which team is going to win a ring and then join them. He has become nothing but a ring chaser.

ring chaser or not, he CONTRIBUTED massively to his rings

it's not like he has been adam Morrison on the end of the bench

heat might have won zero rings without Allen

Boston definitely no ring

I wouldn't care if he played or not, you want him on your bench.

He chose his employer exactly once. That's not being a ring chaser.

Lebron should have spent 1 more season in Miami, cause that team could have won 1 more with Ray. Now Lebron will probably not win another for another 5 years.

He is the absolute worst scum on Earth. There are literally deepest circles of hell reserved for people like him.
