    Grayson Allen with two cheap shots...in a summer league game that his team is losing by 25.
    Grayson Allen never learns his lesson
    How is it possible someone hasn't gone Kermit Washington on him yet?

    The best part of that clip is listening to Dan Dakich just absolutely shit all over Grayson Allen for a solid five minutes.

    I suspect Allen will find himself playing in some foreign country this year and will quickly discover that they don't have a whole lot of patience for his kind.

    I'm waiting for the day he cheap shots the wrong guy and gets his ass laid out.

    Hope there's good video.

    The league was so horrified my the Malice in the Palace that they created draconian suspensions for anything even remotely resembling a fight. It worked. Fighting completely disappeared.

    The natural correction for Allen's behavior won't happen in the NBA. I suspect that's a moot point, though. I'll be surprised if he plays another game in the NBA.

    I'd imagine that, in a summer league game, you also have a lot of guys hanging on by a thread or trying to make the league who are very reluctant to do anything that would put that kind of negative mark by their name. As much as Allen might deserve it, punching him in the face would probably be very costly for whoever did it.

    He’s lucky Grant Williams basically shrugged it off. Williams could have easily whipped his ass.

    If only Grayson had played for one of the game’s greatest leaders in college, someone who could have taught him lessons that would’ve shape him while he was still malleable. What a bummer it is that he never crossed paths with a guy whose leadership branding is so strong it can sell high end credit cards.

    Character. You have to have it to teach it.

    How one of his Duke teammates didn’t choke that fucker out years ago is kind of amazing. Xavier McDaniel would have.
