Before Duke superstar Grayson Allen was a combination college basketball standout/national controversy machine, he was just a kid in Jacksonville, Florida. As a youth in his mid-teens, he was just like you or I would have been.
We're talking about a totally normal, perhaps even mundane young man completely devoid of any objectionable characteristics, behaviors, or opinions.
In fact, a deep dive into his Twitter account proves it. Let's just pick a random one to prove my point:
im hearing good things about the jags. i can finally openly support them lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) August 18, 2012
OH MY GOD. THE JAGUARS. HE KNEW. I TAKE IT ALL BACK.
HE PREDICTED THE FUTURE A FULL FIVE YEARS OUT.
GRAYSON ALLEN IS A WITCH.
My school day consisted of PE and study hall... Lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) September 28, 2012
Ugh. They really still have schools in Florida? I guess just barely.
Mike Miller for finals MVP? Lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) June 22, 2012
DO NOT LAUGH, GRAYSON. It's not funny. Michael Miller is the pride of Mitchell, South Dakota and he is a saint. He was an utterly crucial member of the Miami Heat's Big Four.
Is it weird that I like the song "as long as you love me" ?? Lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) August 14, 2012
No. You have two ears and a heart, don't you??
Got told today to act my age not my shoe size LOL— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) June 17, 2012
Little-known fact: Grayson Allen wears size 23 shoe, so this comment makes little sense.
When a girl replies "aww thanks" when you compliment her, she is asking you nicely to return to the friend zone.— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) September 10, 2013
This is spot-on. I could have used this advice back when I was... all the time, actually.
When a girl says "do whatever you want" don't do whatever you want— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) February 13, 2014
This is not true at all. Is this a rap lyric??
When a girl asks you a question, tell the truth because she probably already knows the answer.— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) June 27, 2013
Trust Grayson on this, for he is a witch and witches can read your mind and also use your entrails to thicken their batwing stew.
Someone attempted to murder me tonight... Lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) July 4, 2012
Wait, WUUUUUUUUUT? DID YOU CALL THE AUTHORITIES?
@jevaughnsanchez I went up for a dunk a someone tackled me lol— Grayson (@GraysonJAllen) July 4, 2012
Oh. I see.
I think we just discovered the night in which Grayson Allen found his life's mentor.
Gosh. The things kids say these days, am I right?
