You should fear Tony Allen? Yes, it appears so

All the talk about that LeBron guy — not to mention the play of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — overshadowed the fact that the Celtics got contributions up and down the roster in this win. And this series.

For example, did you know Tony Allen was a ferocious dunker? Neither did we, but he threw down a monster that inspired the crowd and his teammates heading into the half last night. In the third quarter the Celtics pulled away.

    Tony has always been a great dunker…as well as defender….as well as all-around player.
    If he was on a team that didn’t feature the “Big 3″ – then you would have known that.

    I was aware; I watched him do it at Gallihger-Iba Arena for 2 years. And he would get nasty with it when the game was on the line. He’d go up for a ridiculous dunk when it was completely unecessary late in close games and you’d be like, “NO TONY N…YA!!!!”
    I love watching tony play.

    Have you never watched Sportscenter during the NBA season before? Tony has been on dozens of times in his career for his dunks.
