University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Grayson Allen is still Grayson Allen

grayson

As Kentucky fans, we had a lot of good in the news yesterday.

Whether it was Hamidou Diallo’s commitment to UK, or Kentucky sending Arkansas home with a loss, there was plenty to cover. One bit of news that went unnoticed, at least here on KSR, was that Grayson Allen had yet another questionable call. 

Yes, even after serving an “indefinite” one game suspension, Grayson Allen is still gonna’ Grayson Allen.

Have a look and decide for yourself. Are the laws of physics at fault, or can Grayson just not help himself?

According to Andy Katz, the play would later be reviewed by ACC League officials, deeming that “there is nothing conclusive that can be determined”. No disciplinary action will be taken by Duke or the ACC.

That left foot flailed pretty high after being planted.

What do you think?

    He needs a good round house kick to the face.

    I think he’s an over privileged d-bag who plays for the single biggest cheater in NCAA history. Krhsyzaeldski is allowed to get away with murder and they make sure to back him whether it’s a Laettner stomp, Dahntay Jones breaking someone’s jaw, Corey Maggette getting booster money, Lance Thomas dropping 30k and financing 67k while still in college, Greg Newton and Ricky Price’s academic cheating. Duke is used to getting away with much more than player tripping and the NCAA is more than used to turning a blind eye. NCAA=Helen Keller when it comes to investigating Duke

    He has done it so long , it’s instinctual.

    Never forget Ratface played his college ball at Army for Bobby Knight and he was taught well.

    If no player had been behind him, his backward leg kick would just have looked like a move made by someone who is harmlessly insane. As it was, the insanity seems to have an edge to it.

    72 hour emergency psychiatric hold. Meanwhile will make provisions for emergency inpatient behavioral rehabilitation and analysis. After 72 hours will begin evaluations and one on one sessions interviews with peers, family members, teachers, coaches etc. (I’m not ruling ECT out at this point, however after receiving complete blood workup let’s proceed as follows.)
    Extensive personality evaluation
    ADHD-Bipolar I & II screening process (paper and computer schedule 5 hours)
    Chemical use assessment (2 hours. 1 hour interview, 1 hour paper test)
    Due to lack of empathy and apparent rage let’s assess potential for sociopath, psychotic, schizophrenia
    Summation. Will provide updated pharmaceutical medicines after 72 hold and detox and minimum 2 days of inpatient treatment and 2 meetings with our staff psychiatrist

    This kids crazy he needs to get used to this language this is his future

    I agree with INCALWETRUST above….it’s instinctual and he’ll have a hard time stopping that behavior.
    I like Seth Greenberg but he was twisting and turning to make excuses for Allen last night. Laughable.

      Yes. What is the deal with Seth Greenberg lately? He was even making excuses for the refs missing that the 4-step travel that allowed Kansas to win at the Phog. Seems like he wants to pretend there are no controversies. I like him, but this thing he’s doing now is off-putting.

      Similar to Bilas backtracking on his 5-game suspension recommendation to suddenly agree that 1 game is plenty and Allen has learned his lesson. Bilas has a lot of good thoughts on basketball, but he’s still doubly tainted courtesy of learning basketball under K at Duke and working for ACCSPN.

    If the powers that be won’t handle the situation, one of the players eventually will. I’ll be waiting for that SC top ten knock out highlight.

      Someone’s gonna eventually get up and deck him after they get tripped or cheapshotted, and then that person will get at least a 5-game suspension.

    It is ok. Let boogie cousins go all swoopshire on his arse one time. And he’s history

    The left leg came up too high.

    I ALMOST was prepared for the benefit of the doubt line, UNTIL I saw his immediate reaction was to look at the ref in the middle of the court. No doubt this was intentional and someone needs to stop this guy before HE gets really hurt.

    He got caught twice last year but like this year there was another incident where it looked like he was intentionally trying to trip a player but wasn’t called for it. Wonder if he did this in High School?

    NO way that’s a natural move; obviously deliberate.
    One night somebody is going to grab his head with both hands and…..pull and twist.

    It looked unnaturally high to me, and when you have his history, he loses the benefit of the doubt.

    But of course the ACC hasn’t done anything. They let Reddick get away with the Kobe leg kick to draw contact on every single 3 he shot.

    That indefinite 1 game suspension obviously completely changed his default unsportsmanlike behavior, for sure. Also, it all has nothing to do with Coach K and Duke’s teachings on drawing contact and flopping and doing anything you can to get a favorable whistle.

    The ACC saying it was inconclusive is the first and only comment on any of his kicks to my knowledge. The went out on a limb on that one….no pun intended.

    Grayson Allen is a gifted athlete and has like all good athletes tremendous balance. Watching his right foot hop and plant while kicking up his left leg there is no question this is an intentional play to trip or groin kick the defender, end of story. I think the NCAA and ACC need to review this again.

    I hope he does this to the wrong UL player and gets his entire smirking face caved in.

    I think this smells like a TMZ article.
