NBA legend Ray Allen surprised Filipino fans at Mall of Asia Arena as he showed up during a PBA game between TNT and Blackwater Wednesday.

Allen, who is a two-time NBA champion with the Boston Celtics in 2008 and the Miami Heat five years later, flew to Manina from Hong Kong on Tuesday.

In an interview with Sports 5, Allen said that he is in the country for vacation.

He said he doesn’t have anything concrete planned but it seems like he’s been checking out a lot of basketball here.

He visited the Lyceum Pirates Tuesday night before watching the PBA at MOA where his former Celtics teammate and now Blackwater import Bill Walker was playing.

The 42-year-old Allen announced his retirement in a letter on The Player’s Tribune in 2016, two years after playing in the NBA Finals which turned out to be his last game.

One of the greatest shooters basketball had seen, Allen finished his 19-year career as the all-time leader in 3-point shots made with 2,973.
