Aaron McKie: Everyone knows Allen would read the newspaper, and that he and Phil Jasner, the Daily News columnist who was usually critical of him, had a special relationship. But Allen also studied the game, too. Allen read the comments — all the comments. He knew going into games which people had said they were going to stop him, and he’d have done his research on how to destroy them. He relished that. If you talked to the press about Allen before a game, that put a target on your back. Take Game 1 of the Finals in 2001. Allen got all the pregame notes and clips, read how different guys were playing and what they were saying about him. He knew what to prepare for. He knew that the Lakers were going to use Tyronn Lue to try to shut him down. Allen took exception to that sort of thing. He’d say, “You know what? I’m going to destroy this motherfucker.”
Temple University has targeted former Owl Aaron McKie for a position within the school’s basketball program. McKie, who most recently served as an assistant coach with the 76ers, is supposedly being considered for a player development position, a source with knowledge of the situation said. A day after the PIAA ruled him eligible for his senior football season, Martin Luther King defensive tackle Dawayne Young orally committed to Temple.
