Grayson Allen Apology Thread

And teams playing for the lottery put up little resistance either because they’re injury riddled and depleted or are tanking for better lottery picks.

The kings were playing on the back end of a b2b without Stein and Fox. Lol

The tanking Suns were playing without Ayton and Booker.

I like what we’re seeing but let’s also keep things in perspective.
I think this has been kept plenty in perspective. I'm not sure who you are talking to or about.

We have an apology thread for those who called Allen a bust, you moron. All because Allen has looked good against two G League teams trying to tank/injury riddled. If we had kept things in perspective, we wouldn’t have an apology thread.

Yes. Allen has looked good in two games. But even Mo Almond and Kirk Snyder had a few nice games against arguably better competition.

What are you so pissed-off about? You apparently think it’s a reach or unfair to say that Allen isn’t conclusively a bust. Which is basically all anyone here is saying, including you.

And “You moron”? Get ****ed you tirelessly miserable buffoon.

You're the same dude who said he was a bust after his first Dleague game after his injury lol. One game. Remember? Me saying "hey let's give it an off-season" and you saying how it was already a forgone conclusion?

Most of us know he hasn't done a thing but most of us are willing to give him at least an off-season before making ridiculous projections for a rookie. As I told you, it's a terrible discussion.

If you think I called him a bust because of a D league game then you’re lost.

Give him an off-season? He was one of the oldest rookies from the draft! Four years at Duke.

Maybe we should’ve drafted someone with a higher ceiling and younger age if we have to wait a few seasons to “be ready.”

Because he is a bust. He has contributed zero this season. Until he changes that, he’s been a bust.

Certainly it’s way too early for an apology thread.

Guys, this isn’t that hard.

"Now I might be mistaken, but According to the Stars own website Grayson Allen:

* Played 31 mins
* Shot 4-13 from the field (2-6 from 3)
* 3 rbs and 3 assists
* Scored 16 pts (4th leading scorer on his own team)

Looks to be an above average player in the G-League. Is that why we drafted him too? But hey, Allen had a cute dunk. That’s nice."

Yes. So that combined with his overall performance in the actual NBA is why he’s a bust. Never did I say that my judgement was solely based on one G League game, No matter what you tell yourself. Never did I say in that post you quoted me did I suggest he was a bust off of the g League. You seem to have an opinion of me and will use whatever posts taken out of context in (failed) attempts to prove whatever you think of me.

It’s not working.

Anything else to add or are we done?

Whatever you say Cy. I'll reiterate what a stupid stance calling a rookie a bust is but I understand who I'm talking to.

Whatever I say?

First, the post you quoted me in didn’t call him a bust. Read it.

Secondly, read up on all my posts about Allen. Never have I said that he’s a bust based solely on what he did in the G League. It’s always been his failed campaign to contribute anything to our team this year despite being a four year player from duke. If he couldn’t contribute immediately, who could?

Thirdly, Why draft an old player who still needs time to contribute? Why not draft a younger player with a higher ceiling or stash a foreigner?

Lastly, “whatever I say?” Ummmm it absolutely matters what I say. Obviously, you’re claiming that I based my opinion of Allen as a bust based on one G League game. You obviously misinterpreted what i said. I’ve done that. Just because that doesn’t fit your narrative doesn’t mean you should act all butt hurt about it, as if I’m flip flopping. My position on him has been consistent.

Take your L and move on.

Find me next year at this time and if Allen is still struggling I'll call him what ever he is. Personally I don't think a 21st pick can be a bust but if he hasn't improved (like he has been) I'll wholeheartedly agree with you. As I said though calling a rookie a bust in any sport is honestly the stupidest sporting conversation I can have. I've seen it time and time again and watched people put their foots in their mouths.

I’m not close to being sold yet. But I’m here for it
Same. He had one good game and we benefited. Right on.

I’d like to see him explode and go on a tear. But this is typical Jazzfanz over reaction.

@dalamon, you trying to start another church? Don’t you already have a faith? Or 4?
