Grayson Allen up to his old tricks in NBA Summer League

It didn’t take long Grayson Allen to start doing Grayson Allen things in the NBA. Last night, the former Dukie got into it with fellow rookie Trae Young in the Utah Summer League, hooking his arm over Young’s shoulder, and when Young tried to wrestle free, thrusting his head into Young’s chest:

Both players got technical fouls and Allen was also charged with a personal foul. As Young said, Allen’s reputation precedes him.

“That’s not the first time Grayson has gotten tangled up with someone,” Young said after the game, via ESPN, “but it’s not the first time and last time I’m going to get tangled up with someone. It’s going to happen. This is the NBA. It’s going to be a physical game. Grayson is a physical player. I’m a physical player.”

I can’t wait until Grayson meets Boogie.

    For the life of me, I can’t see why Young deserved a technical. That was all Tripper Allen.

    I cant wait to see him get his head knocked off. Like Young says, he has a rep for it but the NCAA and Coach K won’t be there to defend him. He’s one person who’s career i hope falters. He doesnt deserve it. He’s a legit danger on the court.

      specks I don’t think being a 1st round NBA draft pick prevents you from getting your ass beat when you’re a punk. Pretty sure that’s what david was referring to.

    He likes the little guys; watch out Isaiah Thomas.

    Please, please, please, please, please let Grayson Allen try to pull that garbage on Draymond Green or Demarcus Cousins.

    As distasteful as Allen was at Duke, if this had been any other player, no one would say a thing. Allen was playing good defense, and Young initiated contact. This was nothing.

      Exactly my thought. You can hate on the guy for the tripping and other stuff in college, but nothing wrong at all with playing good hard nosed defense. He did nothing wrong.

      Wrapping your arm down on someone’s shoulder and staying stiff so they cant get away is good defense? I think you need to watch the video again.

      Not only that but I think he showed self control in the end. You could see that same hotheadedness flairing up when he ran his head into Young’s chest, but then he immediately got back under control and backed away, arms up. Gregg Doyel would be proud.

      Good defense? What video are you guys watching? Obviously not the one where he wraps up Young’s arm and refuses to let go. Good lord I hope you all don’t ref any kid games as a side job.

      Good defense in football maybe.

      Holding #24, 10 yard penalty. First down.

    “Boogie” will “stuff” him like a wet washcloth in a coffee cup!

    Bottom line to me (many) is this clown is always around something dirty. Starts it, instigated, carries it over the top, whatever.
    DisGRACE

    LOL….I did not see Young initiate that arm entanglement. He had both hands on the ball for goodness sake. Anyway, I think the fact that none of Allens team mates rallied to his side says something.

    No. 5 on Young’s team was about to destroy someone!

    I despise Grayson Allen. Looking forward to an opponent popping his ‘Popeye the Sailor Man’ mug.

    I don’t like this kid. He is arrogant, conceited and does not care if he hurts someone, but this just seemed like two guys getting tangled. He overstepped his D because Trey is really fast and got caught trying to steal from the cookie jar. Then they both over reacted to it. Play on. The NBA is full of babies, but at least they do not lay on the floor holding a leg that was never touched like they do in soccer.

    Can’t wait to see clips of him getting a beatdown some day soon for pulling his jerk move on someone who will split him open.
