Tony Allen receives death threats from Chicago fans yet Joakim Noah doesn’t…strange

In case you haven’t heard yet Boston Celtics guard Tony Allen has angered some Chicago Bulls fans to the point of actually threatening to kill him. During the past two games in Chicago Allen has had more security around him than Michael Jackson ever had during one of his trials that involved the words kids and Neverland ranch.
The Celtics assigned a security detail behind the bench in case some Chicago Bulls fan was to attempt to shoot, stab, tiddy twist or wet willy Allen during the game. When asked about the situation by Boston Globe reporter Marc Spear, Allen become irritable:
“Is that what you’re going to write about? Is that what you’re going to write about?” said Allen, before walking away after being asked about the threats.”
Umm yeah asshole…sheesh no wonder people want to take some shots at you.
Apparently these threats against Allen have been going on for some time now. Chicago is Allen’s hometown. He also received threats when the Celtic traveled to Chicago on 03/17/09 however Allen missed that game due to a thumb injury. Rumors and theories are abound as to who is actually making the threats. It might have something to do with a bar fight Allen had in 2005 which resulted in one person getting shot in the arm.
Allen was in the fight that resulted in a guy getting shot and going to the hospital now his friends vowed to send Allen to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way.
If they are going to shoot every NBA player that’s been in a bar brawl/gun incident/late night happening, the whole league will have no players.
If you think people in Chicago are pissed now, wait until he reveals he wants to change his name to “Clean Elections”.
