Ray Allen was furious when he stopped a prankster from filming him in a store. The former Miami Heat player, who often enjoys interacting with fans and the media, wasn't too amused by the joke.
The security officer was spotted berating the YouTube prankster. Allen was seen on camera saying, "My man." "I'm sure you can hear me. You're following me around and trying to make a fool of yourself over here. He was heard repeating, "Keep it moving.
According to a tweet from Clutch Points, who later covered the incident, Allen was being recorded at the store when he realised the prankster's accomplice was doing the same. The pair's poor attempt didn't amuse the two-time winner, who criticised them harshly.
He continued, "I'm not cool with that," referencing the fact that he was still being recorded despite having caught the two red-handed. Allen has always been friendly and personable, as many who know him will recall.
He participated in a discussion about Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James as the G.O.A.T. earlier in July of this year and offered his opinion on the subject. He weighed in and offered an explanation for why the Los Angeles Lakers player wasn't yet guaranteed the position.
One of the NBA's most honoured players, Allen also held the record for the most three-pointers made in a career. Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors eventually surpassed him in 2021 with 2,974 three-pointers.
The 47-year-career old's began with the Milwaukee Bucks, and he then played for the Boston Celtics and Seattle Supersonics.
He eventually agreed to a two-year contract with Miami, playing 12 games for them in the NBA Finals, averaging 10.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists. Allen was elected into the Sports Hall of Fame in 2018 as a result of his enormous contributions and accomplishments in the field.
