It is never a clever move for any player in the NBA to get onto the negative pages of the fans. Yet, Milwaukee Bucks’ Grayson Allen’s intentional foul on Alex Caruso during the showdown against the Bulls, found him on the same path. Moreover, after the foul, as Caruso was lying on the floor in pain, with his teammates and coach concerned, Allen could be witnessed causally talking to his bench.
However, while he was on his way out of game, Grayson Allen could be seen smiling. Which ended up triggering not only the Bulls coach but also many fans. After which the former has finally decided to break the ice and step out and break his silence. After heaps of backlash, Allen commented upon the same incident from his own Discord channel.
What was opinionated by Grayson Allen?
Allen links to his Discord via his Instagram account, verifying that this is the former Duke product’s official Discord channel. Within the channel, the Milwaukee Bucks’ player responded to a tweet from Richard Jefferson, offering his side of the now-infamous incident which led to Caruso’s wrist injury.
“Also, to this point. I stood at half court watching till he got up till see if he was okay. Then when I was back by our bench a teammate made a joke and I laughed. I wasn’t laughing at the foul,” Allen said in response to Jefferson’s tweet.
“It was very unfortunate how it played out. I jumped to block it with my left and as I’m spinning went to grab the ball with my right hand not throw him down. It was a really hard fall and I’m glad he’s okay. If I could do the play over again knowing he’d fall like that I wouldn’t make the play.”
Having said that, more than anything Grayson Allen tried to only clear the air that he did not smile on his way out on Alex Caruso but it was one of his teammates who cracked a joke. It seems like Carushow is yet to read the latest answer made by the ‘culprit’. However, he surely will be one to opinionate upon the same.
