Well, Canzano actually broke some news. After Ben made some ominous comments in April/May about Allen's health, I figured something was going on behind the scenes. There was a lot of smoke for there to be no fire. The big parts of the article: "Allen was sick at the end of last season. His skin looked gray. His eyes were sunken. He shuffled around during the Blazers-Rockets playoff series, sometimes with a doctor alongside him." "While the front office was chasing free agents, and while the players were working on their games this summer, something more significant was going down -- Allen went underwent another heart surgery. 'I'm fine, finally,' Allen said Tuesday. 'I'm much, much better. I hit a few bumps in the road.'"
