So excited after Celtics Life was voted the #1 Sports Blog in Boston yesterday, I was retweeting some stuff from my time line on twitter when I came across Tony Allen showing support for the NBA players and Union head Billy Hunter. This is what made TA such a great teammate on the Celtics. Players knew he'd go all out for the team. If you recall when Allen returned to Boston this past season for the Grizzlies one appearance here, TA got emotional after the game and said he'd always be a Celtic. That he was just wearing a different jersey right now.

This didn't have to be of course. Ainge refused to show TA love last Summer. Allen felt he deserved a 3 year deal, but Ainge would only offer 2. Allen went on to sign with the Grizzlies and lead them to the Western Conference Semi-Finals. The Celtics, after  TA's replacement Marquis Daniels was injured again, were forced to trade their starting center for a backup wing, fell to the 3 seed and got bounced in 5 games by the Heat. Interesting to see that TA retweets the comment by a @CelticsLife follower, "Danny is a fool...he should get fired." I don't blame Allen for feeling this way. I mean, if your boss let you go and you went on to flourish elsewhere, you'd most likely feel the same right? Only difference is Allen is in the spotlight as a celebrity, so when he tweets the sentiment it becomes news.  Personally I love the honesty. Perkins was like that too. Miss those two.

In case you were wondering, months ago I asked around if this was TA's official twitter and it was confirmed by reliable sources.

    Led the Grizzlies

    Who gives a shit about "led" or "lead"? The important thing is the Grizz lost in the second round, not the WCF. Don't believe me, ask a Buffoon

    And it got voted best SPORTS blog in Boston, which it clearly is. There's no other sports blog in Boston that covers the Celtics this way, where you're allowed to speak your mind, not have to second-guess what you type because it may be censored. So fuck off.

    He said "went on to lead." Went on to led makes no sense. Fuck it. Who cares? It was voted #1, because obviously not enough people voted for your blog talesofananalman.com Sore lose much?
