Andre Allen SuspendedPosted by rtmsf on April 3rd, 2008
There’s a favorite scene of ours from the 90s comedy “Friday” where the Chris Tucker character (when he was still fresh and funny) finds out that the Ice Cube character (when he was still relevant) got fired while on his day off (see below vid from 1:10 to 1:50).
We couldn’t help but think of that scene when we heard last night that backup Memphis point guard Andre Allen was suspended from the team and will not be making the trip with his teammates to San Antonio for the Final Four.
It’s not as if Allen is a key component of the Memphis attack – he only averages 3.3 ppg and 2.1 apg in just over 14 minutes, but he did play in all but one game and jeeeeez, how stupid do you have to be to get suspended for a drug test violation during the week of the F4??
Maybe Allen Will Have Time for Giant “L” on His Head This Weekend
Let’s see – spend your last weekend of your senior season playing for the national championship… or, spend it sitting in your dorm with all the other students who couldn’t trek down to San Antone. Reading this description of Allen as a kid who should have known better makes it all the more frustrating. Ice Cube would find a kindred spirit in Allen, that’s for sure.
