More HoopsHype Rumors
I asked a sampling of scouts and assistant coaches what they thought of both Allen’s foul on Caruso and Allen’s reputation as a dirty player. The views were decidedly mixed on both. “I like Grayson, and I hate Caruso,” an Eastern Conference scout said. “[Caruso is] always complaining to the refs and scrapping around guys, hacking guys. I don’t know that he’s dirty; he’s just a hack. That’s definitely a really hard foul [by Allen on Caruso], but I feel like it was such a split-second play that he couldn’t have premeditated it. I don’t think it was on purpose.”
