He was famous for his fast pace, quick moves and accurate shots which made him one of the best point guards in the NBA’s history. Furthermore, he featured in the NBA All-Star team a record 11 times.

Allen was married to his high school sweetheart, Tawanna Turner. Even after their dramatic divorce, Allen calls her the real love of his life. The two met on an “opposites attract” circumstance. Unfortunately, their differences took the better of them in the later years of their marriage.
