Drafted by the wolves traded to Milwaukee

Milwaukee
Allen was a member of the NBA's All-Rookie 2nd Team in 1996. His most successful season with the Bucks occurred during the 2000–01 season as he won the 3-point shootout during All-Star Weekend, was selected to the All-NBA Third Team, and led the Bucks, as part of Milwaukee's "Big Three", alongside Sam Cassell and Glenn Robinson, to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Seattle
was named to the All-NBA 2nd Team and, alongside teammate Rashard Lewis, led the Sonics to the Conference Semifinals. In the 2006–07 regular season, he averaged a career-high 26.4 pointsper game while adding 4.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

During his Seattle tenure, Allen became the 97th player in NBA history to score 15,000 points. Allen moved into second place on the NBA's list of all-time 3-point field goals made, trailing only Reggie Miller. Allen broke Dennis Scott's ten-year-old NBA record for 3-point field goals made in a season against the Denver Nuggets.
Allen scored a career-high 54 points against the Utah Jazz in a 122–114 overtime win, the second most in Sonics history.

Boston
Allen passed 17,000 points for his career with his first of two 3-pointers in overtime in a 98–95 victory. with his streak ending at 72, Allen broke the Celtics franchise record in consecutive free throws made previously set by Larry Bird. In game 6 of the 09 series vs the bulls he scored 51. Allen scored 18 points to reach the 20,000 point total for his career.
He broke Michael Jordan's record of six three-pointers in one half by hitting seven in the first half and had tied Scottie Pippen and Kenny Smith's record for most three-pointers in one game in the NBA Finals by half time. Allen became the all-time NBA leader in total 3-point field goals made (2,562), surpassing Reggie Miller's record of 2,560. The deep playoff runs with Boston. The 24 point comeback vs LA.

Now let's say he wins one or two titles with Miami playing a key part and builds his legacy. Where does he get his jersey retired?

Let's not forget that Milwaukee named him 3rd best franchise player of their top 20 but he couldn't attend.

But a case can be made for Seattle.

I wouldn't be shocked with any of those three.

If Seattle get a team back in the next decade they'd be the most likely. Throughout th first season they'd no doubt have a whole tonne of celebrations and events with old guys coming back, and retiring some guys like Payton, Kemp, and Ray would likely be part of that.

Allen played well for the Bucks, even got them to the conference finals once, but it was at a time when the east was very weak. I don't see the Bucks retiring his jersey because, though they were a better team with Allen, likely the best roster they had since the Big O and Kareem played for them, they still didn't get to the big stage, and Allen only played a limited number of years. Same goes for Seattle, he didn't get to the big stage there, and Seatle doesn't even have a team anymore. Now I'm not saying a player has to get to the finals to be worthy of having a jersey retired, because The Ice Man never made it to the finals, and he deserves to have his jersey retired, but that is because he played for the Spurs for SO long. If Allen had played for either the Bucks or the Sonics as long a Gervin played for the Spurs, he'd likely get his number retired there.

But he did get to the big starge with Boston and won a title, and being as how Boston loves to retire jersey numbers, I can see Allen getting his retired there.

Boston. Even though he only spent 4 years there, most people will likely remember him for the big 3 era.

Is he in the Thunder record books? I thought they agreed to leave all their history with the Sonics name in Seattle.

If he wins at least 2 chips with the Heat, might be with them.

Seattle. He had his best years there. Well, if they get a team in the future.

I would think Seattle. I figure Boston might also try and retire all 3 of their Jerseys at some point

I honestly don't think his jersey will be retired anywhere.

I loved him on the Sonics. But they don't have a team right now, so don't know how that'll work. Celts could also retire it too.

There's no rule that says he has to get his jersey retired.

My guess would be nowhere.

Easy one: The Wolves :shrug:

Might as welll :shrug: he is one of the first in a long tradition of SGs who were drafted by the Wolves but never played for the team. Roy had to go and screw up that legacy this year :mad:

My real answer is: Seattle if anywhere.
