Ray Allen

The Greatness of WRA

The all-time leader in 3 pointers is a very uncommon and impressive record to break, especially for a 35-year-old NBA player. However, on 2/11/11 at 8:42pm, Walter Ray Allen broke the 3 point record while playing against the L.A Lakers. Through this milestone, Allen was able to surpass the great Reggie Miller who was ironically the commentator during this particular game.

Even though Allen is a veteran and some might say he is a little ancient in basketball years but when it comes to his skills and accuracy, age is really nothing but a number for this phenomenal shooter. His strength, work ethic, amazing foot work and love for the game have led him to many achievements on and off the court.  Prior to professional ball, he had an impressive high school record averaging 28.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 5.3 assist per game by his senior year. Following high school at Hillcrest, All-American-Allen played ball for the nearby Connecticut Huskies and achieved many honors there as well. As far as the NBA, Ray Allen has been a pro baller for 14 years playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, Seattle Supersonics and currently the Boston Celtics. His statistics for this season are out of this world with an average of 17.4 points per game on 51 percent shooting and 46 percent from the three point range.                                                                                                                                 Ray Allen has a never ending list of accomplishments aside from his point averages. He has been selected to the All-star game 11 times and received the Gold Medal at the Olympic Australian summer games in 2000.  Allen was named All-NBA twice thus far in his career and not only has a knack for basketball but for giving back to the community. His philanthropic ways has led to his selection as the spokesperson for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and his creation of the Ray of Hope. The Ray of Hope is a charity that was established in 1997 to help community and sports based programs so that young people have a safe and motivating chance to discover their potential.  Ray Allen has also appeared in two films and several commercials. It’s expected that Walter Ray Allen will be around for another few seasons which will only make the 3-point record that much harder to break. There is definitely much more to come from this athletic family man.

I hope to acquire a job in the entertainment and sports industry.  I particularly want to do work with marketing/consulting/event planning. And potentially follow up with a JD from a local law school so that I can pursue a career in entertainment/sports law.

My purpose:  Ever since I was young I always try to do  my best to strive for success.  I like to use my positions and accomplishments to help others and be a Good Role Model because it is so incredibly important especially now a days with all of these celebrity posing as Role Models but they aren’t the best for young people to look up to.  I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and passions while having fun and enjoying/appreciating life.   And when I reach financial success I plan on giving back to all those who helped me a long the way and those in need of help but until then I must stay positive and enjoy the life I have been blessed with.

Sports Chat Fanatic’s Purpose: SCF’s purpose is to bring together sports fanatics of all colors, shapes and sizes from all regions with their different team preferences  to discuss and learn anything and everything about sports while making new friends.  ENJOY!

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
