Ray Allen briefly caught the acting bug early in his NBA career, starring in Spike Lee's "He Got Game" in 1998 and then the comedy "Harvard Man" in 2001, but he has not acted since.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Retired NBA star Ray Allen believes he is a victim of "catfishing," and has asked a court to throw out a case where he is accused of stalking someone he met online.

Allen says Bryant Coleman "pretended to be a number of attractive women interested in" him. In documents filed Tuesday, Allen acknowledges he communicated with who he thought were those women and that he eventually entered into an agreement with Coleman to not disclose details of those conversations.

Allen says that agreement was violated.

It was not clear if Coleman has an attorney, and a working phone number for him could not be found. Coleman told the court in a filing Monday that Allen is stalking him. In Allen's request for an injunction, he says, "The reverse is true."
