Hall of Fame guard Ray Allen got angry and berated a YouTuber filming him at a Target store. Allen was one of many shoppers who were tricked by fart noises. One of the greatest shooters of all time, Allen retired in 2014.
Lope, who has over 945,000 subscribers on YouTube, recently uploaded a video of himself pranking people using loud fart noises. One of his unsuspecting victims was Allen, who was far from amused by the incident. He quickly went to talk to the YouTuber and his cameraman to give them his thoughts.
“Man, I know you hear me,” Allen said. “You follow me everywhere trying to do some bullshit here. I know you hear me. Keep it up.”
Allen continued to scold Lope, who gave him sarcastic responses. The YouTuber later explained in his video that he had no idea it was the NBA legend. He felt embarrassed, as he was only trying to do his usual prank video and not following Allen.
In the video, Allen was clearly uncomfortable being recorded during his private time at the department store. However, the 10-time All-Star is generally cordial in public, recently arguing with a fan on the GOAT conversation.
Although he played alongside LeBron James for a few seasons, Allen explained why Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time.
“Is he an excellent free throw shooter? Allen said. “Is he a great 3PT shooter? Is he a great dribbler? So you say he’s the GOAT, but he’s not even the best in all of those categories.”
Ray Allen career retrospective
Ray Allen was drafted fifth overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 1996 NBA stacked draft. Allen was immediately packaged with center Andrew Lang and traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for Stephon Marbury, who was the No. ° 4.
In Milwaukee, Allen became one of the best young shooting guards in the NBA. He spent six and a half seasons with the Bucks and was a three-time All-Star. He led Milwaukee to the playoffs three times, reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in 2001.
The Bucks traded Allen to the Seattle SuperSonics midway through the 2003 season. He was named an All-Star four times during his four full seasons in Seattle. The Boston Celtics acquired Allen in the summer of 2008 to form a “Big 3” with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Ray Allen won his first championship with the Celtics in 2008, spending five years in Boston. He first became a free agent in 2012 and joined Celtics rival Miami Heat. At South Beach, Allen won his second championship in 2013.
The Heat wouldn’t have won this title if Allen hadn’t pulled off one of the greatest shots in NBA Finals history.
He forced overtime in a must-win Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs. He retired after the 2013-14 season and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
