Bucks reporter Jim Owczarski and host JR Radcliffe spend most of this episode on Grayson Allen. Was the NBA right to suspend Allen for the foul on Alex Caruso? Could the suspension have been longer? How much does his reputation factor into the fallout of the play? How about the Bucks reaction, including the response to the league and an ill-timed GIF? Oh yeah, and the Bucks have won three straight and are back in the thick of the Eastern Conference title race. Plus, the guys look back at another hard-foul controversy from recent history in One Quick Buck.
