The idea of adding the greatest three-point shooter in the history of the NBA to a team that already possesses Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson is absolutely ridiculous.
But according to Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers, the team has indeed reached out to semi-retired 10-time All-Star Ray Allen, who boasts the most three-points field goals in the history of the Association (via CSN Bay Area).
It is not yet known whether Allen is willing to return to the NBA as a member of the Warriors, but it does appear that he’s in no hurry to make a decision. According to ESPN Radio host Ryen Russillo, Allen is telling teams to contact him in January for a potential return in February.
And while the Cleveland Cavaliers are considered favorites to land Allen for the stretch run, his ultimate goal here has to be contending for a championship. At 19-2 on the season and winners of 14 consecutive, there is little doubt that Golden State is the best team in the NBA.
Now signing with a Western Conference team is a completely different ball game. I am not too sure Allen wants to put his body through what will be a grueling postseason run in that conference. No matter how good the Warriors are, Cleveland’s path to the Finals will be much easier in the Eastern Conference.
