Grayson Allen Blew Off A Hug From Oregon's Dillon Brooks, And - For Once - I Don't Blame Him
You see this mess you have gotten me into Dillon? I have to actually write a fucking blog that's sympathetic towards Grayson Allen, and it's all because you had to knock down a completely unnecessary, absolutely ludicrous 30 foot three pointer while no one was guarding you with the game already well in doubt. Now, don't let the fact that I am about to defend Grayson Allen's spitefulness fool you. I still LOVED watching Dillon Brooks take that shot and I was absolutely thrilled when it went in. That doesn't mean that this was the right decision...
You can't be the type of guy that rubs literally ALL the salt in the wound of the opponent, and then try to play the "classy winner" role one minute later. That's pretty much why every single late touchdown in a complete blowout turns a coach's midfield handshake into a coach's midfield bickering contest. Teams don't like to be embarrassed, and that goes ten-fold for a prissy, holier than thou school like Duke. Yes, Grayson Allen is a total dickhead and I have my doubts about whether or not he would have reciprocated the hug anyway, but the fact is that Dillon Brooks gave him an respectable out by making the most "fuck you" three pointer of all time. That shot was the equivalent of blatantly tripping someone mid-court (sound familiar) and then trying to help them up from their fall. It's insincere, disingenuous, and it's going to get you a stern talking to from Coach K...
