Sometimes you get so caught up in certain aspects of a story line that the most glaring thing out there manages to slip by you.
With all this talk about who's not getting minutes… I've kinda looked past who will be.
Ladies and Gentlemen… if the Celtics are to hoist banner 18, we're going to need a significant contribution from Tony Allen in the playoffs.
Yes, I know he's played fairly well this year.
Yes, I know he's capable of being very good at both ends of the floor.
But I also know what else he's capable of.
So if you'll excuse me, I've got to go change my underwear, grab a set of rosary beads, a rabbit's foot, a necklace of garlic and whatever else I can find to ward off the evil juju. We're hitching our wagon to Tony "upfake" Allen… and there's nothing we can do about it.
I'm still not putting him in the banner, though.
