Tony Allen Receives Death Threats In Chicago

Security was beefed up last night in the United Center over death threats made against Tony Allen. This has been going Warriors Celtics Basketballon for some time now, I suspect stemming from an incident he was involved in almost 4 years ago outside a late night Chicago “grease spot” although reports have stated that it’s due to a separate, unrelated incident. He was acquitted of aggravated assault 2 years after that fight in ’05, but this is Chicago…and the streets don’t acquit you, they get you ’round here. So whoever is after Tony (reportedly a former associate) is obviously pretty serious about it (he’s been receiving threats since March) and the Celtics and the NBA are taking extra precautions to make sure nothing happens while the team is in town for the playoffs. Allen who is from the west side of Chicago and played at Crane HS knows what the deal is when it comes to having beef in Chicago, so I’m sure he knows to stay out of sight while he’s here. I guess you really can’t go home again!
