Ray Allen is still one of the best shooters in the league at age 36. The 16-year veteran told Fox Sports Florida that he thinks he could play a few more years.

"My body feels good," said Allen. "Whenever you're with a great organization, it makes it easier, and it makes it funner, and it gives me a great chance to play until I'm 40. I don't know how many guys in the history of this league have done it."

Allen also said that he is looking from a multi-year commitment from the Celtics according to Chris Tomasson.

"Allen will be a free agent next summer. When asked if he wants to re-sign with the Celtics, he offered a quick, 'Yeah.' Does he think he can get another multi-year deal from them at 37?
'Yeah,' said Allen, in the second-year of a two-year, 20 million contract. 'Thats what I want.'
