The Wall Street Journal ran a big feature story today on former Celtics guard Tony Allen, calling him "the NBA's most unlikely impact player."
Allen signed with the Memphis Grizzlies as a free agent this offseason, and while his defense may be missed in Boston, it's safe to say most fans aren't pining for him like they are for Kendrick Perkins. Allen was, after all, a little erratic during his time here.
"It would have been impossible for us to stay afloat if Tony hadn't been able to consistently perform the way he has," general manager Chris Wallace told the Journal.
Good for Wallace, and good for Allen. Probably good for the Celtics as well.
