Tony Allen says that teams not paying tribute to their former star players is “a sign of disrespect and a sign of pettiness.”
“That’s kind of being petty for the organization,” Allen said. “It’s premeditated. They thought about doing that before you even came back.
“To give [Durant’s No. 35] jersey away [to another player], a guy who has been in multiple MVP conversations, scoring champs, got those guys to the [2012 Finals].
“And another guy like Kyrie, who won a championship for those people, it’s a sign of disrespect and a sign of pettiness.”
