Mr. Allen, I believe Commissioner Adam Silver is on the phone for you. Those are words that Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies will hear very soon — after his antics in Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
In the third quarter of the game between the Pelicans and Grizzlies, Tony Allen got a little out of control.
Allen goes up for a block on Omir Asik and was called for a foul. Allen, who wasn’t pleased with the call, wandered onto the baseline.
From there, Allen decided to smack a camera that a cameraman was holding. You instantly see the cameraman go to his face as if he were bleeding.
Do you think this is worse than Dennis Rodman’s tussle with a photographer?
