Andrew Bogut Calls Out Amar’e Stoudemire After Asking For A Longer Suspension For Grayson Allen: “Might Want To Sit This One Out”
Milwauke Bucks player Grayson Allen was in the center of controversy last week after his flagrant foul on Chicago Bulls man Alex Caruso led to a fracture that will see him miss 6-8 weeks of basketball
There was quite a bit of uproar in the media and among fans over what was seen as a deliberately dangerous play by Allen, and the NBA handed him a 1-game suspension for the foul
Former NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire, no stranger to hard fouls or unfortunately, injuries, spoke out on the issue after Allen's suspension was announced
Amar'e didn't think that just the one-game suspension was enough, citing a similar sentence he had received for doing something much less egregious
"That's weak. Not enough... I got suspended for a game for stepping on the court. This was an intentional through down, that caused a player to need surgery. SMH. COME ON."
While a lot of fans agreed with Amar'e's take on the issue, former Milwaukee Buck Andrew Bogut wasn't too pleased to see Stoudemire speak about the foul
During the 2009-10 NBA season, Stoudemire had nudged Bogut during a fast break, which led to a terrible fall and resulted in broken bones and a dislocated elbow
Bogut had to miss the rest of the season through injury.
