|Stern Says NBA On Pace To Have
Third-Highest Attendance In History
SECURITY DETAILS: YAHOO SPORTS' Adrian Wojnarowski wrote with "bad series and irrelevant franchises conspiring for a sluggish start" to the NBA playoffs, Stern needs the Bulls-Celtics series to "go the distance." But the death threats against Celtics G Tony Allen are "real and a concern." The NBA heightened security for Allen following the threats, and it "was an embarrassing episode for the Celtics and the NBA." Stern at Thursday's Celtics-Bulls game at United Center was walking around "with his security force watching the back of Allen for who-knows-why," and his teammates are "made to pay with suffocating security presence the rest of the weekend." The situation has the NBA and the Celtics a "little uneasy, and a little embarrassed" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 4/24).
