In a season already filled with pain and embarrassment, the Kansas City Chiefs have yet another harsh reality to face: Former first-round pick Eric Berry is their absolute, worst defender. The truth hurts. According to Pro Football Focus, of all the KC defenders who have played at least 25 percent of the team's snaps, Berry has consistently been the worst Chiefs defender.
With the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, the Hawks were constantly on the road and had few practices when they were at home. That at times left Horford to work out alone.
Just as there’s no legitimate complaint to be found in his thought process, there’s no faulting Allen for the execution of his move, even if it initially came off as shocking. Shortly after signing a two-year, mini-mid level contract with the Heat in July, he made a point of taking out an ad in the Boston Globe thanking Celtics fans. While not the most unique gesture in the world, it was a typically classy move and a clear olive branch to a fan base known for its knowledge and passion. Allen, who had sought a new deal from the Celtics well before last summer’s free agency period, clearly did his part, both in trying to make this thing work and in pursuing a proper exit.
