It’s safe to say that Grayson Allen is a polarizing figure, right? It might not be as bad if he weren’t a Duke guy, but that’s there too.
He’s been criticized endlessly for his tripping incidents, which is fine, but being a Blue Devil magnifies that.
Look up Chris Paul and low blows. Somehow, he’s an elder statesman despite this vicious habit. Nothing is worse. We have no idea how he escaped being called Chris Balls.
But one guy is a hero and the other is a villain.
Although Allen may never fully escape the furor that accompanied his trips, his talent is shining through and if you can play, people forget a lot of stuff.
Just look at Paul.
