Allen is the guy trailing that sticks his foot out and trips Trae...hard to tell as this is only a small clip, but it doesn’t seem like Grayson serves any purpose. Brooks has switched into him..
I guess they could be trying to trap him as it looks like they’re up near half court, but Grayson is already in position and doesn’t need to be that aggressive. Brooks is the one having the corner turned on him. Just on this vid alone, it doesn’t appear intentional, but with Grayson’s history, it looks a little suspect.

It looks like Ja Morant is injured.

Looks like he sprained it pretty badly. Hopefully there's not any serious structural damage.

This kind of thing is always going to be an issue for him. He's Derrick Rose 2.0 with his athleticism and how he plays.

Allen with a response that I can't tell is sincere or not:

I'm with Allen. What is he even whining about? I think it's a case of his rep preceding him. Oh and offensive players wanting no impediment at all at any time.
He intentionally stepped on his ankle twice in that clip.

Really? It's a bit blurry on my screen but I don't see much and I've watched it a dozen times. He is the guy on the right, isn't he? It looks like he inadvertently steps on his foot as he's lunging behind Trae going for the pick while Trae is definitely committing an offensive foul using his left arm to push off his defender.
Go Suns!

It was absolutely intentional by Allen. Base on history of dirty plays, he gets no benefit of doubt from me.

I don't think it is sincere. But I also don't see that play as being that bad.

Of course it's not.

Didn't know about all that stuff, this guy should be suspended, that's what they do in soccer with dangerous players.
Seems like a dumber version of Bruce Bowen, but just like him, he might end or alter careers by hurting people.

Grayson Allen is the worst, he’s one guy I could never root for. I hope someday he pulls his crap on the wrong guy and gets punched in the face.

And he does have a very punchable face.

The thing is, he probably did it intentionally, but that doesn't matter. Either he tried to hurt another player, or else he's so out of control of his own body and limbs that he accidentally recklessly endangers other players on the floor. Either way, it's dangerous and should lead to a punishment. Suspend the guy some games and let him think about how to better control his limbs, or his intentions.

He’s been doing this for a long time. Think a punch in the face would go further than a suspension.
