Ray Allen plans to continue his NBA career and wants to do so alongside LeBron James, whether it's with the Miami Heat or another team.

Allen and James have developed a close relationship as teammates and even vacationed together last week after they were eliminated from the NBA Finals by the San Antonio Spurs.

"One thing is for certain, to [make a retirement decision] on my terms is the most important thing," Allen said after Miami's exit. "Whether that is me retiring, staying here or going somewhere else, it will be on my terms. I've made it to this point, and I felt great that I have the choice to make it for myself."
