Grayson Allen sent off: Was Bucks goaltender’s reputation considered in Flagrant 2’s appeal for fouling Bulls’ Alex Caruso?

| Business News Today | World News

Grayson Allen earned a solid reputation playing at Duke.

The guard became known as a dirty player during his four years with the Blue Devils for multiple tripping incidents and other shenanigans.

This story followed him to the NBA, and while there were incidents in the league, the severity of his discretions lessened. Friday night, however, the Duke version of Allen seemed to return.

Why was Grayson Allen ejected against the Bulls?

Allen was whistled for a hard foul on Alex Caruso in the third quarter of the Bucks-Bulls game at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. He got a Flagrant 2 call and an automatic ejection.

There’s no debating that this is a hard foul, especially considering Caruso’s hard fall to the ground. Caruso injured his wrist while landing.

“Dude just caught me in the air. Kind of bulls—t,” Caruso said post-game.

Was Allen’s reputation for unnecessary physical contact a factor as referees scrutinized the play? We’ll never know. Could that be a factor for the Bucks to be Allen’s third team in four years in the NBA? We’ll never know.

One thing is certain: his reputation in college will always be on the table when he finds himself in an altercation in the league.

Bulls coach Billy Donovan also touched on Allen’s story in his postgame comments. He said the fault was “really, really bad” and “could have ended” Caruso’s career. Donovan hopes the NBA will take a “hard look” at the game.
