Ray Allen won cham­pi­onships in Bos­ton and Mi­ami, made one of the most mem­o­rable shots in NBA Fi­nals his­tory and has more 3-point­ers than any­one who ever played in the league.

More than two years af­ter his last game, he’s de­cided that was enough.

Allen an­nounced his re­tire­ment on Tues­day in a post on The Play­ers’ Tri­bune web­site. Allen spent 18 sea­sons in the league with Mil­wau­kee, Seat­tle, the Celtics and the Heat, av­er­ag­ing 18.9 points in 1,300 ca­reer reg­u­lar-sea­son games and ap­pear­ing in 10 All-Star Games.

“I write this to you to­day as a 41-year-old man who is re­tir­ing from the game,” Allen said in his post, which was in the form of a let­ter to his younger self. “I write to you as a man who is com­pletely at peace with him­self.”
