I think the Grizz should give the guy some ultimatums or cut him.

He has a very punchable face and personality to begin with. Coupled with the fact that he should probably get punched in the face, i'm surprised he hasnt been decked yet.

I think the ref saw him get screened hard them immediately came back and whacked the guy in the head. Seemed premeditated.

Combine that with the supposed automatic flagrant 1 for above-shoulders contact and it's a plausible call. To your point though, I feel like I see that a lot but doesn't get called. Chalk it up to something they can call if they want to.

While that's true, this wasn't Tommy Heinsohn commentating...

Neutral commentators from ESPN2 criticizing Allen, yet somehow Tommy Heinsohn is to blame :lol:

I can't believe nobody from his inner circle of family and trusted friends has sat him down and had a heart to heart with him. Explained to him that his lack of emotional control is already costing him the very small and rare chance at future financial security for life. No disrespect, but he's not some top prospect, the chances for guys like him are rare. He's making it way harder on himself to succeed, someone needs to explain this to him.

There's only one that can change that spirit. He can't control himself.

^^ The levels of delusion displayed by both Dakich and the writer of this article are alarming.

Wind up to hit. Luckily he didnt get a clean strike. He tries to be sneaky but he's so out of control he can't hide his rage. This is a scary level of anger out of him.


This. If that sequence happens at a playground, the situation escalates and ends really badly. The refs were totally right to toss him.

Grayson Allen apparently has the emotional IQ of a 5 year old.

And they have every right to. This is not longer at the "hot headed" "or kid will mature" level, this is a tragedy waiting to happen.

It isn't the fact that he swung down on his second flagrant in and of itself. It was that when you examine the replay in concert with what followed, he is clearly overreacting to a backpick like 2 plays after shoving the exact same player in the face. He couldn't control himself and was targeting Williams at that point. No place in the game for that.

You give off a stalker vibe.
WTF how?


A bad boy with a big... paycheck.... that’s how.

Edit: was responding to how Allen gets a girl like this, not the stalker vibe!

Yep and to me this is much bigger than basketball. The fact that he is willing to hurt people when things don't go his way is scary. He's the type of person who is actually dangerous to be around. This isn't just basketball.

I'm not so sure about the second one, but as others have noted, he had already received a T for complaining about another call. He comes across as an entitled Dukie who thinks he should get Cameron style officiating in the NBA.

LOL, if you are going to take cheap shots, Grant Williams is probably not the guy you should target.


We’re going to like Williams and his ability to exploit cheap shot artists like Allen. Dude is a bull who sees the action develop and will use his smarts and strength over his opponent. Grant comes across like a choirboy, but he’s got attitude and confidence and is not going to fall for stupid antics.

Getting some Javaris Crittenton vibe here. Hot headed + cynical + lack of self control.
