Any player to make the NBA Hall of Fame has certainly had an amazing career and Ray Allen is no exception.

To celebrate the recent achievement, the Jordan brand were generous enough to gift Ray a large Black and Gold Qir Jordan case that included four sets of Air Jordan sneakers that had a large significance to Ray Allen’s career.

The case was presented to Ray by a Jordan brand employee and long-time friend, Gentry Humphrey.

The pairs of shoes include the Air Jordan 16 in a Milwaukee Bucks PE color, these were the shoes that Ray wore during the first ever three-point contest he won along with his second NBA all-star appearance.

The next pair were Air Jordan 20’s, the creation of these were inspired by his time in Seattle where he started off his career at the Supersonics.

The third pair in the box is mismatched shoes put together because of the time Ray Allen swapped shoes in a pre-game warm up during the 2008 NBA Finals where the Allen went on to win his first championship with the Celtics. The two shoes were a Jordan 9 and a Jordan 11.

The last pair is a very notable pair, the Air Jordan 28, the same pair that Ray Allen wore when he drained the famous corner three against the Spurs during the NBA Finals to send it to Game 7 and then eventually leading to a championship for the Miami Heat.

A career that’s ended up with two championships and a Hall of Fame appearance is a wonderful career for one of the game’s best three-point shooters.
