Tony Allen’s Shoe That Kicked Chris Paul in the Face Auctioned for Charity

Memphis Grizzlies basketball swingman Anthony Allen, better known as Tony Allen, donated his shoe, that kicked Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul in the face, to Memphis non-profit organization Youth Villages.

It was Nov. 19 when Tony Allen went into the air, extended his leg in a defensive move that put his left shoe across the face of the 2013 All-Star MVP Chris Paul.

Allen, though he said it was not intentional, was ejected from the game on a flagrant foul charge, suspended and fined.

Now, to help to fund holiday gifts for children, Allen donated that shoe to Youth Villages, who auctioned the shoe off bringing in a last bid of $5400, which will be doubled, by an anonymous donor giving the same amount, reports Youth Villages’ blog.

Hats off to Memphis Grizzlies’ Tony Allen for kicking some support to a charitable cause.
