What is wrong with Greyson Allen? | Page 3

ticket2ride04 said: ↑ Another T today. Click to expand… To understand Grayson Allen, it helps to have followed college basketball for a long, long time. Grayson plays for a coach who has tolerated dirty play for decades. He plays for a coach (Coach K) who has improperly represented his school. He plays for a coach who played for a coach (Bobby Knight) who was fired for not controlling his anger.

This team is just another underperforming Duke team. They are rare – but do happen
