In the recent game, the Chicago Bulls faced Milwaukee Bucks for a regular league match, but the match caught a lot of headlines since the Bucks forward Grayson Allen showed his dirty play. When Alex Caruso was going to score a point, Allen hold Caruso’s arms and pushed him to the ground which resulted in Caruso getting injured and will not play for 6-8 weeks.
Due to this Flagrant Foul Grayson Allen was suspended by NBA for one game. But is a one-game suspension enough to punish, who did a career-ending foul on the player? The same question was raised by former six-time All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire. He tweeted, “That’s weak. Not enough.”
Stoudemire further added, “I got suspended for a game for stepping on the court. This was an intentional through down, that caused a player to need surgery. SMH. COME ON …”
Andrew Bogut takes a dig at Amar’e Stoudemire’s past dirty deeds on him
Currently, Amar’e Stoudemire is serving as the assistant coach for the Brooklyn Nets, but this didn’t stop him to condemn the NBA’s one-game suspension on Allen which even claimed is “weak.”
However, NBA champion Andrew Bogut decided to remind Stoudemire’s dirty deeds on him. In 2010 a similar incident took place when Bogut for the Bucks was moving on a fast break to score a point, and just before he was going to dunk, he was pushed from behind by Stoudemire. This resulted in a broken hand, dislocated elbow, and sprained wrist injuries after a dangerous fall for Bogut.
It seems that Andrew Bogut hasn’t forgotten about that flagrant foul on him by Amar’e Stoudemire. Bogut on Twitter tagged Stoudemire while tweeting, “Might want to sit this one out.” Bogut questioned Stoudemire for showing the double standard on Grayson Allen and Alex Caruso incident.
Till now Amar’s Stoudemire has not responded to Bogut’s dig on him. It might be a possibility that Stoudemire has no comeback on this reminder because Andrew’s point totally makes sense.
The Bulls Coach and players criticize Grayson Allen foul on Caruso
Coming back on Allen he was highly criticized by the Bulls coach and Caruso’s teammates. Coach Billy Donovan said, “For Alex to be in the air and for (Allen) to take him down like that, he could’ve ended his career, He has a history of this. That to me was really — it was really dangerous. I hope the league takes a hard look at something like that because that could have really, really seriously hurt him.”
The Bulls center Nikola Vucevic argued on the same issue and said, “The play Grayson Allen made has no place in basketball, “It’s a very, very dirty play.”
