Was Ray Allen's Decision A Good One?

Ray Allen is the best 3 point shooter in the world. He is also the oldest and well respected player in the NBA. You hardly see Ray Allen Show off during a game or you hardly see Ray Fight. Ray Allen also has a great personality. Today’s question is Should Ray stay as a Celtic or was it right to go to the Heat?

                Ray Allen has the record for most threes in the NBA. He has made 2648 threes in his career. He also has the quickest release in the NBA. He is the only player in the NBA that can move well without the basketball. Guarding Ray Allen is one of the toughest things to do in the NBA. If you have to guard him you might want to bring at least 10 bottles of water and 10 bottles of Gatorade. This is because guarding Ray is like running more than 20km. In Every play in basketball, you always see Ray moving without the basketball. He is not like some other players that just stand still and wait for the ball. If you give Ray Allen some space he will just shoot a 3 and make it. You can’t leave him open, because shooting to Ray Allen is just like breathing.

                During the 2011-2012 season Ray Allen had an ankle injury. It was very difficult for him to play during games with his injury. When he had that injury, I noticed that he wasn’t as fast as he used to be and he couldn’t shoot that well. The reason why he couldn’t shoot well was because that ankle injury was keeping him away from playing basketball. It was keeping him away from his shooting practices. The other reason was the ankle was bothering him. Ray couldn’t jump the way he wanted to. When he jumps he can feel the pain on his ankle. The reasons why the Celtics didn’t win a championship during this season was because of Ray Allen. Ray was the secret weapon to the Celtics. He could shoot a 3 anywhere and anytime.

                Now we see Ray Allen going to the Heat. Did he do the right thing? In my opinion yes he did. Ray Allen is getting very old and has some ankle problem. Ray has a better chance of winning a championship in the Heat. The Heat has some great players right now. They have players that can pass, block, steal, finish at the rim, score, rebound and now they have a player that can shoot threes. Hopefully Ray Allen’s ankle can get better and he can start to enjoy winning another championship.

Please feel free to comment and let me know what you guys think. Was it the right decision?
