I'm just hoping his Memphis Grizzlies teammates don't fine him $100 for this missed layup, because that would just seem unfair. Then again, most contracts drawn up in locker-room kangaroo courts explicitly include an "Acts of God" clause, so the grit-and-grind shooting guard is probably safe from financial penalty here. In fact, getting your shot to rest on the rim might wind up being a lucrative opportunity for Allen. I hear the Atlanta Hawks are always looking for new halftime-show talent...
