Kevin Ollie, Jim Calhoun on Ray Allen's retirement
“I believe we are all well-aware of the tremendous impact that Ray has had, not only on the UConn basketball program, but on the game of basketball at its highest level. His skills on the court were obvious, but the daily work ethic he maintained in order to retain those skills for so long was truly inspiring.
“On a personal level for me, Ray has been a great teammate both at UConn and in the NBA and he continues to be an even better friend.
“He is obviously a very special player and he’s also a very special person on and off the court.”
