HoopsHype Tony Allen rumors
Brown made Thompson aware of his frustration in a manner that was apparently not very polite. Eric Lewis, who was officiating the game, seemed to believe that Brown's colorful language was directed at the referees and promptly awarded Brown with a technical foul, which just so happens to include a $2,000 fine. Upon witnessing this injustice, Vince Carter, Esq. and his paralegal Tony Allen strapped on their lawyer pants and came to Brown's defense. Carter and Allen "were my attornies for a moment, and they went over and they got me out of my fine" Brown said after the game. CSNPhilly.com

Right now, Grizzlies swingman Tony Allen can’t see a return to action anytime soon. “Nah, man. My eye is messed up. It hurts,” Allen said on the eve of the Griz game against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in Quicken Loans Arena. Allen likely won’t play for a third straight game. Judging by how his right eye looks, it’s difficult to know when he’ll play. Allen has a right corneal abrasion, an injury suffered last Tuesday when he got poked in the eye during a victory over the Golden State Warriors. Memphis Commercial Appeal

Then, Henderson heard from Vince Carter, Tony Allen and several other players. No one would reveal how they learned about the incident. To a man, though, the players were eager to talk about why no one hesitated to help Henderson. “He’s dedicated to the Grizzlies. He’s always there when we need him,” Pondexter said. “We have to look out for our own. We say it’s a family around here, so we were looking out for a family member. I’ve had cars stolen. I didn’t grow up with any money, so I know how it is to be in that situation.” Memphis Commercial Appeal
