Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen was unhappy with a foul call on Monday night, so he decided to take it out on a cameraman.
After Allen fouled New Orleans Pelicans center Omer Asik, he walked over to photographer Bo Bradley, who was sitting under the basket, and yelled “Why?!” into his camera. He then smacked the camera, apparently causing some part of it to hit Bradley in the face.
Allen is a passionate player, but there’s no need for that. Fortunately, he apologized and Bradley brushed it off.

The “he” that Allen was referring to in his tweet was NBA reporter Matt Winer, who tweeted that Allen should be fined.
Good on Bradley for not being dramatic about it since he didn’t get hurt, but that was completely uncalled for. Allen needs to do a better job of controlling his emotions.
