Ray Allen On Being Away From the Game: “I Didn’t Miss it”

We were without Ray Allen on the court last season, but the veteran sharpshooter still isn’t officially retired yet. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t, but he’s leaving it open for a possible return. It’s great to have that kind of luxury as he’s just waiting for the right opportunity to come along. In the meantime, he’s happy being home.

“I haven’t said anything about that and I won’t officially retire,” Allen said Saturday during a break in his basketball camp for kids at East Granby High. “Because if something came to the table, contractually and situational-ly, I want to be able to take a strong look at it. I don’t want to be that guy that says he’s retiring and then is coming back….

“I didn’t miss it,” he said. “I realized how much time I missed not being home with my kids. I probably missed it in the Finals. Watching Cleveland and Golden State play, it just seemed like an epic battle that required a lot of precision on the floor and that’s when I felt, that was probably the only time that I felt like, ‘Man, I should have been out there.’”
