Ray Allen will be remembered for his great career and the magnificent shot he had with the Miami Heat. In Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat trailed by three to the San Antonio Spurs. Allen had a shot from the corner and tied the game, sending it to overtime.
The Heat won the game, and defeated the Spurs in Game 7. This was their second consecutive championship. People started talking that Allen saved the career of LeBron James with his magnificent shot. Allen still talks about his shot, and this time he opened up about LeBron, and the way he sees things.
“When you’re on a good team, a great team, you find heroics come from all different angles,” Allen said. “Throughout the course of that season you seen a different guy step up whether it’s offensively or defensively. In that playoff series, or in that game actually, Mike Miller hit a three without a shoe on. And that three was an important three. LeBron hit the three the previous trip down the floor to get us to that moment, to that situation.
“So for anybody that says I saved his career, we can make the same case for him saving ours. Putting us in position to win the championship. It’s not just a one-way street. You want to look at that moment and say this is something that I did but I’m part of a team and I contributed at the moment the team needed me to contribute. … It’s foolish when people say that somebody saved somebody.”
Hopefully, Allen’s words will be enough to shut down all the rumors regarding him, LeBron James and the famous shot.
LeBron is busy with his team at the moment. The Los Angeles Lakers are missing the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season. He is currently helping the team sign another big name, and Anthony Davis is their top target. But, the Lakers also hope to sign Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving or Kawhi Leonard. This summer will be full of surprises, and we can’t wait to see the rosters for the upcoming 2019 season.
