Ray is one of the great shooters of all time—right behind me!"
—Teammate Paul Pierce

“Ray is hands-down the best shooter in NBA history. He's an amazing piece of work. It's kind of cool just watching him. Every time he gets the ball we think it's going in"
—Teammate Nate Robinson

Ray is a consummate pro, and the things he brings to the game will resonate in our locker room. That is something I don't think the average fan gets. Players can teach other players about being a pro. Coaches can't do that. So that'll be great to have a guy like him around for that.”
—Celtics head coach Doc Rivers

“Ray’s got that smooth flow. He's the most natural player I've played with."
—Former teammate Glenn Robinson

"It's nice to know that in this day and age, there are still athletes out there who say 'thank you' when you give them a new car for making the all-star team."
—Broadcaster Dan Patrick

"He's more in a style of a George Gervin. He's a fluid player, he's a flow player, he's a finesse player."
—Nuggets coach George Karl

"I love his game. He's got all you need for his position."
—Knicks GM Donnie Walsh

"He's not only the best player I've ever coached, he's one of the best people I've ever been involved with."
—UConn coach Jim Calhoun

"He’s cool. Real cool."
—Former teammate Sam Cassell

“He’s our leader. We listen to him. Obviously, he's a great leader.”
—Former teammate Danny Fortson

He’s strikingly handsome, he has a million-dollar smile, and with no slang in his lexicon, he speaks in the soothing voice of a pilot pointing out sites of interest below.”
