When one of the biggest jokes in modern NBA history is poking fun at you, you’re one of the biggest jokes in modern NBA history. Please win tonight.
Update: The Wizards did not win tonight and are now 0-12. My favorite stat from a depressing game? Jan Vesely picked up four fouls and scored zero points in seven minutes, giving him 34 fouls and 29 points on the season.
Update No. 2: Blatche continued trolling the Wizards overnight on Twitter:
Feels good to be part of a winning organization
Idc wat a wiz fan say yes I was outta shape Ill give yal that but no body n that organization tried to help me with
I was going to link to this but decided it needs its own post. Do the Wizards really think a 2-15 team deserves four All-Stars? Do the Wizards really think any of these four have played to the level of an All-Star?
I understand marketing, and engaging the fan base. I get that. BUT, I think the majority of fans and media think Nick Young and Andray Blatche need to be cut, dismissed, or bought out from the team. Immediately. Sentiment is split on JaVale McGee, but either way the guy isn’t an All-Star.
That’s right, most fans want those two gone, but the Wiz brass wants you to vote for them as All-Stars. I know because of gumshoe reporting the image above was taken from the front page of the Wizards’ website.
John Wall is the only cornerstone this team has. He has been playing well of late. But with point guards like Deron Williams, Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo in the East, Wall isn’t an All-Star. Yet.
If I’m voting for anybody, it’s Jan Vesely. Just so he brings his girlfriend.
My favorite nugget, though, was found in that last link, courtesy of Michael Lee:
Blatche tried to assume more of a leadership role this offseason, organizing a team workout after [Flip] Saunders gave him John C. Maxwell’s “The 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player: Becoming The Kind Of Person Every Team Wants.” Blatche admitted to only reading half of the book and didn’t remember its name.
Without having read The 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player I can’t say for sure, but I’m pretty sure negligence isn’t one of them. I applaud Dray, though, for taking the same approach I took with summer reading before senior AP English, which is to say I didn’t. (Sorry, Mr. Klass.)
And if I, an aspiring communications major, couldn’t be bothered with The Great Gatsby, how could we expect Bulletproof to bother with some bullshit?
ok let’s do this so everyone can see wat u bout let’s meet n dc saturday after my game
@Loc_LessMonsta like I said I’m done with this fake internet thing if u wanna see meet me saturday after game I can throw these things homie
Now, to be fair, it does appear @Loc_LessMonsta was egging Bulletproof on with repeated insults and contributions to the amusing #blatchegottradedfor hashtag (example: “#blatchegottradedfor BKs Double Whooper + a 2019 unprotected 2nd round pick”). Still, you just don’t challenge a fan to a fight, especially on the public record.
Which Dray probably realized, because the tweets have been deleted.
