He reminds me of Danny AInge.


Ainge spiking the ball off Elie's face was something alright, but I don't recall him undercutting guys in the air, going at people's knees and the garbage that Allen and Beverly do.

That was his first NBA flagrant offense I heard right.
A different set of refs and he probably doesn't ejected for the Caruso foul either. Like I said earlier, he's learned how to make his cheap shots look less offensive, just like Beverley does. Most of the time, you know what they've done, you just can't quite prove it.

These players have a track record. All the referees have to do is open their eyes.

His first this season, in previous years he managed to get 2 flagrants in under a minute.

There are montages with dozens of clips of Allen's cheap shots, followed closely by his stupid, beady eyes being baffled at how people could be so mad at him going at someone's knees, tripping them, clubbing their head with both arms... ect ect ect. One of the dirtiest players of all time... and he is still young!

Is t that mostly college stuff? It seems to me this is getting exaggerated because of the injury. Not a fan, but I think Pat Bev and the Morri are just as bad or worse.

I'd rank Allen ahead of them. The Morrii and Beverly didn't enter the league dirty. They became dirty players over time. Everyone knew Allen was a cheap shot artist before he declared for the draft. I'm surprised he's still in the league because he's not exactly good.

What's sad is I could like Allen as a player if it weren't for his needless cheap shots. They are totally unnecessary.

I'm not a fan of players who persistently like to showboat. GPII held the ball up to Bitzgade after the dunk, stared him down and started scratching his head.

GPII does the stare down thing a lot after dunks. If I were a referee I'd start giving him some technicals until he stops this sort of behavior.

That is not Payton holding the ball it's a PAcers player, Justin Holiday.

Yeah, I took another look and saw that. At first glance it looked like GPII was holding the ball up because of the angle.

Both players got technical fouls. It's all good in my book.

Grayson Allen is only suspended for one game for flagrant 2 foul on Alex Caruso.
