Milwaukee Bucks fans are still doing whatever they can to try and get over Jrue Holiday’s departure. The fact that Damian Lillard is now a Buck will surely help this cause, though.
While he may not have been as valuable or as well-loved as Holiday was, the loss of Grayson Allen has also been felt by the Milwaukee faithful.
Milwaukee Bucks Ship Off Grayson Allen to Phoenix Suns
Allen, who joined the Bucks a couple of years ago via a trade deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, was part of the recent three-team blockbuster deal that allowed Milwaukee to get their hands on Dame. Allen was part of the package that landed with the Phoenix Suns, where he will now be plying his trade for the foreseeable future alongside Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, and the rest of the gang.
All in all, it’s definitely not a bad situation for Allen to be in as he looks to win his first-ever career championship with a powerhouse Suns side.
Grayson Allen Trolled Hard on Twitter
Allen was recently interviewed by the press during one of his first practices with his new team. Unfortunately for him, the mean streets of Twitter paid more attention to how he looked during the said interview as opposed to what he actually had to say to the press.
The keyboard warriors showed him no mercy as they brought out the old-man jokes on the incoming sixth-year shooting guard:
Grayson Allen is only 27 years old…
THIS MAN LOOKS 50 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/ckGCE6O6sj

He’s grey, son.

He's 1982 27, not 2023 27

That’s a 40 old prosecutor with 3 kids who just can’t help himself from crossing the line to win the case.

To be fair, Allen does look a bit old in the interview. I guess it was just the angle and/or the lighting?
The fans on Twitter also could not help but compare Allen’s looks to renowned American politician Ted Cruz:
Clearly that is Ted Cruz at the rec league gym

Doesn’t look like he bout to play ball
Looks like he bout to play Ted cruz in a biopic

According to Twitter, it’s not just Ted Cruz who happens to be Allen’s doppelganger:
I was worried the Marvel character Hawkeye wouldn’t keep going after Jeremy Renner’s accident but I think we found the alternative. 🙌

He's gonna star in the Dukes of Hazzard Prequel, as a young Rosco P Coltrane

I was wondering what Corey Feldman was up to.

I guess Grayson Allen is the type who has a generic face. Either way, though, it’s what he’ll do on the basketball court that will matter for the Suns.
