Tony Allen Says He Gave Out Ramen Noodles on Halloween Because of Lockout

The lockout may be tougher for some players than it is for others, but if the rest of us can afford to give out candy on Halloween I think professional athletes should be able to.  Players are certainly missing out on a few bucks now that games have officially been cancelled, but I wouldn’t exactly say David Stern is the Grinch who stole Halloween.  According to Tony Allen and his collection of Ramen Noodles, the lockout put a damper on trick-or-treating.

As Funny Athlete Tweets pointed out, the following picture accompanied tweets that read “Sorry kids its a lockout no candy!!…” and “Its the thought that count!!” on Halloween from Allen’s account.

If college kids were trick-or-treating in Tony’s neighborhood, his house would probably be a top priority.  We won’t call handing out Ramen Noodles to kids on Halloween cruel, simply because we don’t believe he actually did it.  The lockout may have people moving back home to live with their parents or getting a job at a furniture store, but it can’t be this bad.  Allen has to be joking, right?  Assuming he was, he must eat a lot of Ramen Noodles.

    This is stupid. I know we are in a recession and times are tough and money has to be stretched…..but that applies to us REGULAR PEOPLE. These basketballs players make MILLIONS of dollars every year…..them missing a small portion of their games is NOT going to force them to eat Ramen soup every night. I know he was probably just trying to make a point, but seriously, he was the absolute wrong person to do it. OHH boo hoo now he’s only going to make 8 million this year instead of 10 million. HOW WILL HE SURVIVE!?!?
