Kicks On Court Classics // A Tribute to Ray Allen

The game of basketball has seen many things of beauty, but none quite compare to that of Ray Allen‘s jump shot. Equivalent to that of Ken Griffey Jr.’s swing, Allen’s textbook form and flair for the big moment made him one of the most prolific shooters to watch and one of the best to ever play the game.

Officially retiring from the NBA via The Player’s Tribune, Allen leaves behind a legacy as not only one of the best shooters to ever play the game but also one of the biggest Kicks On Court stars. Highlighting his collegiate days at UCONN and NBA career, check out some of his best footwear moments below.
