Allen’s induction was officially announced on Saturday hours before the NCAA Men’s Final Four, joining an impressive group of 13 basketball legends including Steve Nash, Grant Hill, Maurice Cheeks and Tina Thompson.
Allen, who won a title each with the Celtics and Heat, saw former Miami teammate Dwyane Wade shower him with praise after the announcement. Wade posted his congratulations to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, crediting Allen for “saving” the Heat’s title with his game-tying shot in Game 6 of the NBA Finals in 2013.
Wade wrote: Game 6!!! Enough said!!! Congrts to my brother Ray Allen for being inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame!!! & THANK you for saving our Championship season.

Allen and his Celtics teammates have been beefing since he took his talents to South Beach. It doesn’t seem that Allen has the same problems with the Heat.
