    I agree. The announcer was doing way too much, in my opinion. Looked to me like he tried to swipe at the ball and clipped William's head by accident.

    Grayson Allen is a piece of garbage and I’m ecstatic Duke won that recruiting battle. I would have actively rooted against him if he was at Florida and pulled the kind of crap he did at Duke.

    The only thing that was wrong with those version of the Pistons was that it was more like pro wrestling in that the refs kind of lost their whistles. I have absolutely no problems with hard plays, as long as the cross-the-line plays get whistled. The NBA liked having "the bad boys" to boo.

    It's called "a rep." It is real.

    I think Pope K has gone the way of Pope Osborne (Nebraska football). They have lost their way.....BAD.

    To my knowledge there's no rule against going for blocks with a closed fist.

    Get real.

    You have to know what the intent was. He was not even close to the ball. He wasn't trying for the ball.

    And he left the court with a hurting hand. LOL.

    I'm analyzing the sequence as it actually happened instead of allowing emotion to get in the way, how is that not real? I couldn't care less about Allen, but I'm still trying to figure out why it triggers some people so bad. Allen's intent was to prevent a layup, not to hit Williams. I don't expect that he appreciated Williams locking his arm during a screen and getting a flagrant foul due to the attempt to get out of the lock. Then the Celtics baited him with a hard screen on the next possession. Williams knew exactly what he was doing when he went into that 2nd screen. That's why he was laughing afterwards.

    You're actually even wrong about him using a closed fist, after watching replay again at 4:05.

    I know what I saw.
    What replay at 4:05?

    I saw him with a closed fist striking down.

    Is this the kind of thing we are to expect for the 2020 election?

    Do you know what a closed fist looks like?

    Good, I invite you to re-watch the replay at the 4:05 mark of the video. Allen's fist is not closed and his eyes are on the basketball. Just trying to help you see things clearly.

    Grayson Allen is a giant douche. An entitled, spoiled brat and sore loser and it plays out on the court with regularity. Anyone that says he doesn't intentionally try and hurt dudes didn't pay attention to his career at Duke. Unless tripping and hip-checking guys qualifies as something else.

    I didn't hear Dakich's comments and really don't care to. Just saw highlights of the game and it pretty much looked like he was back at Duke. I also have no love for Grant Williams. He's a sneaky player and a flopper. Just the kind of guy that can get under Allen's very thin skin. At some point Allen will be 30 and it will dawn on folks that it's not immaturity. He's just a dick.

    LOL.

    Grayson has a huge trail of this kind of stuff and you are defending him.

    I saw it and he is not going for the ball and he is just trying to hit the other guy as hard as he can. The fact that he can't do it is on you.

    Get real.
