Grayson Allen was last years college basketball villain, after the public became aware of his inability to control his anger following two separate tripping incidents.
Well, it appears that old habits die hard.
While on defense playing against Elon University, the Duke guard can be seen blatantly kicking and tripping the opposing player who was attempting to drive the lane.
After the tripping incident, Allen was given a technical and then had a complete and utter meltdown on the bench.
Allen completely lost control and Duke assistant coach Jon Scheyer had to step in.
Allen will be under a microscope for the rest of his career after his antics last season. Generally disliked at this point, he can ill-afford to make any more outstandingly bad PR moves on the court if he hopes to continue playing in the NBA. There is little doubt in Grayson Allen’s ability to ball, but goodness, he trips people so often you start to wonder if he was taught to believe that is part of the game.
Along with having developed a reputation for tripping people, he also has a reputation for flopping.
Grayson Allen: the NCAA’s favorite player to hate.
