This is the start of a semi-regular feature I'm going to run this year tracking Ray Allen and his chase to surpass Reggie Miller as the NBA's all-time leader in 3-point scoring.
Allen, a former Husky, is probably the former UConn player with the best shot to wind up in the Hall of Fame. That's mainly due to his absolutely deadly accurate 3-point shot.
At the moment, former Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller is the NBA's all-time 3-point king with 2,560 made 3s. Allen is quickly catching up to Miller though. As of today, he has 2,461 3s, putting him exactly 100 away from breaking Miller's mark.
Assuming he avoids injury, Allen should easily break Miller's record this season. Last season, he hit 145 3-pointers and he has hit more than 100 every year of his career with the exception of the 1998-99 season, when he only played in 50 games.
Allen and Miller may be close, but no one else is. Third place belongs to the retired Dale Ellis, who is way behind with 1,719 3's.
We'll keep an eye on Allen throughout the year and bring you more updates as he gets closer to Miller's record.
