The benevolence of Saint Grayson Allen

    I watched that game. I couldn't believe they ejected Grayson. I agree with the article. ESPN seems to be helping the NBA and NCAA in their apparent efforts towards making basketball a game for the weak. I confess I miss Metta World Peace, Rodman, Piston bad boys, and the likes. It was fun watching the NBA ...

    This article certainly has changed my view of him.

    Nor me. He has enough talent to play in the NBA. He just has no class in doing so.

    It changed my view, too. I didn't realize what a perfect subject of satire he was until I read this article...that somehow isn't satire.

    All who are not big time hoops fans feel that the game is for the weak

    You again? Dude, I am married, OK? :)

    On a more serious note, ain't that true? Physical contact is a thing from the past now. These silly rules are killing the big guys/traditional centers (see Dwight Howard for example). 10 years ago, the second flagrant by Grayson would be just a foul. 20-30 years ago it would be absolutely nothing. For those beyond 55 like me who played/followed the game, you might remember the unofficial, but widely followed rule: "he touched the ball first, so no foul". Not only that, but the game is now a 3-pt contest and getting terribly boring with all these review stops. And what really bothers me is the ESPN broadcasters yelling "GET THIS GUY OUT" GET THIS GUY OUT" a few feet away from the refs when a call was not yet made.

    Brilliant generalization ....

    I don't particularly like either Allen or Dakich.  Don't know the other announcer.  The author seemed like a total Duke homer and possessed zero objectivity.  Now the Williams guy that he fouled seemed like a classy guy.   At least there was one.

    Even if you think that the game should be more physical or what not, Allen should know better. He's in the summer league, auditioning for a NBA spot. Showing that you can be riled up and drawn into commiting fouls is idiotic.

    Oh yeah, any drunk kid at Brick Street has a better judgement and decision making skills than him. I will be surprised if he is not playing in Europe or China a couple of years from now. My point was more related to the article. First, I saw no reason for the ejection. And second, the ESPN guys crossed a dangerous line. Look at the video: one broadcaster literally tells the ref (and even makes gestures) saying "get him out".

    The ejection was for it being his second technical, no?
