The man who accused Ray Allen of making violent threats against him after their alleged relationship went sour is backing off — he’s dropped his case against the NBA star, TMZ Sports has learned. As we previously reported, Bryant Coleman got a temporary restraining order against Allen in Florida after telling the court Ray sent men after him and made violent threats over the phone. Coleman had previously told TMZ Sports he believed his life was in danger.
Ray Allen had always maintained the allegations were B.S. — and that Coleman is the real bad guy … who catfished him in a scheme to get private information from the NBA star. Now, we’ve obtained court documents which show Coleman has voluntarily dropped his restraining order — though he doesn’t explain why the change of heart. Ray’s attorney, David Markus, tells us, “We are pleased Coleman voluntarily dismissed the injunction and false claims he made against Ray Allen.” “Ray has never met Coleman, has never spoken with him or threatened him in any way. He wants nothing to do with him and is looking forward to putting this matter behind him.”
At 35, Wade said it is only logical to take his career at this stage year by year. “That’s the way I approach it, even if I’m on a contract for two years, that’s how I approached it,” he said. “As me and [Heat captain and close friend] Udonis [Haslem] both talked about for many years and I think we got it from Ray Allen, about knowing that time is going to come for you. Don’t have a perceived notion that I’m retiring at this age, ‘I’m retiring at this year.’ Play the game year after year, see how you feel, and see what you want to do the following year.”
