Ray Allen Elected To Basketball Hall Of Fame

BOSTON (CBS) – Ray Allen is headed to the Hall of Fame.

Allen, who won championships with the Celtics and Heat, was part of the class announced Saturday. He is the NBA's career leader in three-point field goals made and attempts.

He averaged 18.9 points per game in 19 seasons in Milwaukee, Boston, Seattle and Miami.

During five seasons in Boston, Allen scored 16.7 point per game as apart of the Celtics' "Big 3" with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Allen and his teammates have reportedly been at odds in recent years after he opted to join LeBron James in Miami rather than staying in Boston.

Former Celtics Dino Radja and Charlie Scott will also be inducted into the Hall of Fame in September.
