REPORT: Ray Allen Boarding Golden State Warriors Championship Death Star
Now that he finally got a big one right, we're beginning to believe Chris Broussard when he says things about NBA free agency. Hell, after Kevin Durant (and David West) jumped ship to to join the greatest regular season team in NBA history, we'd believe just about anything. This summer, what with a quasi-sentient business orangutang a few million votes from the Presidency and a tectonic shift in pro basketball's power hierarchy, has redefined what human civilization is capable of.
Ray Allen to the Golden State Warriors? Sure, why not. The guy hasn't played since 2014, back when he was a spry, young 38-year-old. He might as well bring Charles Barkley and Karl Malone with him, because this team has officially become a one-way ticket to a NBA Championship ring.
Sources: Ray Allen considering NBA return. His reps contacted GState. Allen would also consider Cavs, Spurs, Clippers if he decides to play.

[ESPN] Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, is considering making a comeback, according to league sources.
Allen's representatives reached out to the Golden State Warriors recently about the possibility of Allen joining the Western Conference champions.
The Warriors are unsure whether they want to pursue the future Hall of Famer, sources said.
Allen, who will turn 41 on July 20, is also not absolutely sure he wants to return after sitting out the past two seasons. But he is intrigued by the possibility of playing for another championship, and in addition to the Warriors, he would consider joining the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers, sources said.
If you're at all curious how Warriors' GM Bob Myers can afford a roster comprised entirely of former All-Stars and future Hall of Famers, it's because Klay Thompson and Steph Curry make a combined $28 million next season. For comparison, Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose take up $46 million in cap space.
Myers should get a Nobel Prize for those contracts.
