Duke’s Grayson Allen Throws Tantrum After Getting Caught Tripping Opponent
The big issue here isn't really that Duke's Grayson Allen is out there tripping guys on purpose. He trips 'em (three times now this season), he gets caught, earns a technical, and possibly a suspension (we'll see). And the Earth continues to rotate.
But look at the way that Allen reacts on The Duke bench (second video below) after the latest episode, tonight vs. Elon. Allen tripped sophomore Steven Santa Ana near the hoop and got t'd up and sent to the bench. Allen then proceeded to throw a massive tantrum, shaking and rocking uncontrollably -- it was actually pretty horrifying. Duke has a real problem on its hands.

Mike Krzyzewski's reaction was somewhat arrogant and tone-deaf, as one might imagine coming from someone in the elite coaching bubble.

Young Grayson Allen picks the guys he trips well. Hasn't gotten his ass beat - yet. Let the next guy punch him dead in the mouth. #Deterrent
