The NBA beefed up security officials around the Celtics bench for Game 3 Thursday night in Chicago in response to death threats made against Celtics guard Tony Allen.
Allen and a man from Chicago have an unresolved disagreement that reportedly dates back over a year. T.A. played just one minute in the C’s win over the Bulls.
“It’s a private team matter,” Celtics president Rich Gotham told Yahoo! Sports. “It’s just not something that we are going to talk about.”
Reaction: Great, just what the Celtics need, another off-the-court distraction. Tony Allen should not have to worry about his life just because the Celtics are playing the Bulls in the playoffs.
I’m glad NBA security officials have stepped up and helped out, but if his life is seriously in danger, he has no business traveling with the team to Chicago. I suppose it’s his right and he shouldn’t live his life in fear, but I’d rather Tony Allen sit on the bench and do nothing than never live another day.
