There were many illustrious moments that helped to shape Ray Allens Hall-of-Fame basketball career, but in his mind, there is one that stands high above all others: winning the 2008 NBA championship as a member of the Boston Celtics. After donning his orange jacket Thursday afternoon at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Allen looked back on his time in Boston fondly, singling out the teams banner season as the pinnacle of his career. Allen split 12 seasons between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Seattle SuperSonics aspiring to win a title, but it wasnt until Year 13, when he joined Boston, that his dream was achieved. However, those two players, along with Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and a crew of believers turned the Celtics into a 66-16 team during the 2007-08 season, completing the biggest regular-season turnaround in NBA history.
