I Love To Hate Grayson Allen1 min read
Yesterday, the #1 ranked Duke Blue Devils took down the #2 ranked Michigan State Spartans 88-81. Many were anticipating a big game from star Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III, who is already being touted as one of the most talented players to suit up for the Blue Devils, which is saying a lot. However, the freshman suffered an eye injury ten minutes into the game, forcing the Blue Devils to look to a familiar face instead: Grayson Allen. Allen, who shocked many in the college basketball community by returning to Duke for his senior season, scored 37 points in a fantastic effort against the #2 team in the country.
Do you think that Allen came back to purposely piss off the entire country for one more year? For the first three seasons of his career it was all about the antics, the trips, the kicks, the suspensions, you name it. This year it looks like it is just going to be his skill in general that ticks some people off. It feels like every year Duke has one of these guys: Allen, Reddick, Scheyer, Paulus, Hurley, a bunch of cocky white dudes that somehow become the key difference makers on the top team in the country. Allen was lights out last night, of course, scoring almost 40 points, but God does he just suck. His Ted Cruz/Zodiac Killer face, his child-like antics, his WILD pre-season clap show:

The guy somehow managed to ruin Cascada, Cascada! Just like how I now have to hate this beautiful song, you can’t help but hate Grayson Allen. Maybe some of it is based on jealousy for not being able to dunk and shoots lights out from 3 like him, but it is hatred nonetheless.
