Rolling Stone tracks down Haven Monahan playing for Duke as “Grayson Allen”

unnamedThe Blue Devils beat Wisconsin for the national title, and college basketball’s blue bloods come out on top once again.

…Here are a couple of things I learned about Grayson Allen by perusing his bio on the Duke basketball website: He graduated cum laude (of course he did) from something called the Providence School, a place that defines itself on its own website as not just Christian, but “boldly Christian,” in case you enjoy your Bible study with a side of audaciousness…

I already dislike Grayson Allen (a bit player for the Blue Devils all season who put up 16 points last night), and as I write this, I’ve known who he is for about an hour. I already want to see him fail in some publicly humiliating fashion, merely because of the uniform he is wearing. He is every over-entitled, Izod-clad jerk I’ve ever come across in a bar, and I want him to spill his celebratory sparking cider.

Is that overly harsh? Well, screw it. I can’t help it right now, Grayson. I’m caught up in the moment…

The Grayson Allens of the world will always win…


*Haven Monahan: A name invented by “Jackie” of the UVA scandal, reported by Rolling Stone.

    We need to start keeping them.

      They get so long so fast.

    Decades ago I played high-school basketball at a small prep school, and graduated third as a senior. My memories were that of working HARD at both areas. And don’t know much about Duke basketball, but one would think that this white player has had to work hard to get were he is.

    As well, one must treat this sort of writing with utmost distain. The kid is a freshman, after all, young. And to impugn ill-conceived political motives on a young guy like this, well, one should shake their head in disgust. There is something ugly about this sort of thing. I guess that is the reason for the post, eh?

    I don’t understand this at all.

    Rolling Stone wrote an article about some guy and hates him because reasons…..
    Despite that for being a dumb reason to write an article (up there with how much I hate pineapples)how is this ever relevant?

    Help me BCF community your my only hope.

      A “journalist” who describes himself as a “cranky Jew” (in his own bio) seems to hate all Christian gentiles.
      Flip the words around in his story (Christian to Jew) and have it written by a “cranky Christian” and see how long the author would remain unemployed. I say that would be a life sentence.
      This is a very noxious strain Christophobic thought within much of Judaism that NOBODY dare speak of, and seems to gather in vitriol with the proclaimed secularism of the offender.

        Ooooooh. Well thats very unkind then now isn’t it 🙂

        Edit: Forget to say thanks so…..Thanks

        “Boldly Christian” would translate in some liberal minds as very conservative. That plus the clean-cut mainstream success at a young age seems particularly infuriating to the author.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          The author is obviously quite infuriated.

            Yeah, I’ve heard that people who have never achieved anything in their life tend to get that way.

        The shabbos goyim need to know their place.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Apparently he thinks so.
          These idiots think they are being cute and witty by giving a wave to their fellow bigots, but in doing so they create the very anti-Semitism they claim to fear so much.

          We need to attach a price to their bad behavior.

          • Uncle_Waspy

            I’m going to go out on a limb here and speculate that neither the author of this piece, nor fruitpie RS publisher Jann Wenner has ever set foot in a synagogue other than for weddings or funerals.

            “Christophobic” doesn’t really capture the malice. It’s really “anti-Christianity”. Those practising it are completely schizophrenic: Going on and on about inclusion and tolerance, and then spewing venom towards Christians.

            As for the price to be paid for bad behavior, the price is the Frankenstein monster turning on its creator(s).

    You’d think that, in light of its shameful role in the UVA “rape” story that
    Rolling Stone would cool it on the unprofessional, irresponsible displays
    of not-journalism. Michael Weinreb states in his rant that he’d only known
    of Mr. Allen’s existence for an hour before writing his nationally published
    hit-piece. While it’s disturbing that someone so childish and small as Weinreb
    can find employment as a “journalist”, what’s truly astonishing is that the
    so-called editors at RS saw fit to print his character assassination of a kid
    they know next to nothing about.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    You’d think Rolling Stone would cool it with any references to the UVA gang rape hoax after their publication was so badly humiliated by it. Nope. The Narrative must go on!

    Remember how society and popular culture put Tim Tebow through the grinder a couple years back?

    This smells a lot like that.

    Hate for Duke basketball is decades old.

    A recent ESPN 30-For-30 documentary called ‘I Hate Christian Laettner’ looks at the overwhelming hate for one specific player, Christian Laettner.

    He was assumed to be some privileged rich boy, but, he’s actually the son of blue collar workers from Buffalo, NY.

    Krikey, what a hateful puke.

  • Nerd envies/hates jock shocka.

    Jesus, what a childish little man.

    • Frau Katze

      All the comments at the article are negative. Like, what’s this writer’s problem?

  • Hard Little Machine

    And Duke isn’t a particularly “Christian” school by any measure. It’s pretty run of the mill faith wise as colleges go. Go to church, or not. No one cares.
