It was just one month ago that Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen was suspended 1 game for inadvertently kicking Chris Paul in the face during a game. Though the kick was an accident, Allen earned a flagrant 2, was ejected from the game and the NBA took action for what they deemed to be a reckless play. Fair.

Putting a positive spin on this accident, Allen is auctioning off the custom adidas D Rose 4 sneaker that struck Paul in the face to benefit Youth Villages. The Memphis-based  non-profit organization is looking to raise $15,000 to buy gifts for local children.

“I’m glad that the shoe will be creating something special for kids in Memphis. Everyone deserves to have a Christmas to remember. I’m glad I can be a part of their memories,” Allen said.

The winning bidder will receive Allen's left shoe autographed in a custom Grizzlies display case.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind piece of sports memorabilia that will be an amazing addition to any Grizzlies fan’s collection,” said Richard Shaw, chief development officer at Youth Villages.

Starting bid price of $750 will provide holiday gifts for 10 children in Youth Villages' care. The auction ends Sunday, December 22. Bid here.
