Grayson Allen Indefinitely Suspended By Duke Blue Devils and Mike Krzyzewski

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski and Duke Blue Devils suspended Grayson Allen indefinitely after his 3rd tripping incident of this year.

The incident happened on Wednesday and it’s against Elon, which results to a technical foul. Due to this, Allen had a meltdown on the bench, which is a scene that’s almost as cringe-worthy as the trip. After claiming he wouldn’t be swayed by public sentiment and the apology of Allen to Elon player he tripped was actually sufficient handling of the said incident, Mike Krzyzewski reversed course on Thursday quickly.

According to Krzyzewski, they had a chance to review the incident thoroughly, which involves Allen from the game last night against Elon. He said that the incident was inexcusable and unacceptable. For this reason, he took a crucial step last night through apologizing to Coach Matt Matheny and Steven Santa Ana in person. He also added that they have to take further steps about Allen’s actions that don’t meet the Duke Basketball standards. That is why they are determined to suspend Grayson from the game for an indefinite period of time.

In the previous season, after the most polarizing basketball player in the college basketball has tripped players twice in less than 2 weeks in the games against Florida State and Louisville and ACC announced for a public reprimand.

Mike Krzyzewski said that he handle things the way he handle them and he think that he have handled it properly and moving forward he’ll continue to handle it in a proper way and he does not have to satisfy what some people think he should do. He also said that he is not just a coach, but also he is a teacher and responsible for what Allen did.

Those who already knew Allen or met him would probably say the suspension and comparisons about him are unfair. Well, the person they knew away from the court is humble, quiet, and shy. However, majority of people will not get an opportunity to get to know more about Allen. They just knew only what they see with their own eyes and what they often see is a bad behavior of the player who appears to be a petulant baby at best and at his worst, he appears to be like a sore winner.

It is basically up to Mike Krzyzewski to help Grayson Allen as he is his head coach. The coaches teach players lessons in a hard way every time. They frequently bench starters to cut class and suspend the athletes for violations to the rules of the team that general public is not privy to.

There is really no secret offense in this case. Nevertheless, there is an extremely public act, which is a repeated, public act. And there’s only a single person who has the authority to not tell Allen it’s an unacceptable, yet show him. This person is Mike Krzyzewski.

Duke does not play again until December 31 in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener at the Virginia Tech.
