Ray Allen is arguably the most prolific three-point shooter of all time. He has attempted 6,788 shots from beyond the arc throughout his 16-year career and has hit 2,718, which is the highest total in NBA history. However, he will be 37 next season. While he is undoubtedly a future Hall of Famer, Allen is not the player he used to be. Over the years, he has become injury prone, a liability on the defensive end and has limited ability to create offense off the dribble. Luckily for him, the Miami Heat will not need him to do much of any of that in 2012-13.

Despite transforming into a one-dimensional player over the years, Allen still has the ability to become a key asset to the Heat's offense. With LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh on the roster, Allen will have little trouble finding a role as an effective sixth-man.

Let's take a look at four specific reasons why Allen will shine as the newest key addition to the reigning NBA champions.
