Career and Net Worth

Coming into the 2018/19 National Basketball Association season, one of the rookies who many scouts were excited for was Grayson Allen, the 21st overall pick who has been compared to sharpshooter Bob Sura. Grayson has everything necessary to be one of the best shooters but only if he kept his bad attitude in check. At Duke, he was a hated player because of his cowardice and dirty plays.

In July 2019, Grayson continued his history of dirty plays. He was ejected out of a game for brining back the Duke adaptation of himself that made him a controversial college basketball figure. In a summer league game against the Boston Celtics, Allen got caught up with Celtics rookie Grant Williams and threw him to the floor to draw his first flagrant foul. At that point, on the following play, Allen got lost on defense and attempted to recoup by making another dirty play. As Williams went up for a lay-up off a pass from Tremont Wate, Allen swiped to make a play on the ball. Video replay demonstrated his whole elbow decking Williams in the head. Williams went at Allen before ignoring it and keeping his cool.
