This is wrong in every possible way. If you’re wealthy, and Tony Allen is, even amidst a lockout, then you have an obligation to hand out full size candy. It’s one of the few unwritten rules of pre-college Halloween. Rich people have to give out awesome candy, just like how the outcast in school needs to get his house toilet-papered, and how the idiots who leave out a giant bowl of candy with a sign thats says “please take one” need to pay for their stupidity. When I was a kid, there was nothing better than getting a giant Hershey bar in my bag. So shame on you Tony Allen, you better step your game up next year.

Zach Randolph will have to wait a while to try and show the Clippers that it was a mistake to trade him for peanuts.
