Allen's three-pointer to save Miami's season in Game 6 of the Finals was probably enough to justify his entire contract, but even so, Allen has continued to show why he'll be a first ballot Hall of Famer. He keeps himself in remarkable shape, and his relentless work ethic means that he's always ready to unleash that sweet shooting stroke. We always respect guys who will take a pay cut because they want to win, and you can bet Allen could be making twice as much if he were willing to play somewhere other than Miami.
