Default blatche at it again

hey dude - maybe you should just stop using twitter and complaining to the media? maybe just keep stuff in the locker room?

WASHINGTON -- It took only one game for the new-look Washington Wizards to resemble their same old dysfunctional selves.

Andray Blatche took to Twitter on Tuesday to, in effect, criticize the way his criticisms were criticized following the Wizards' season-opening loss to the New jersey Nets, in which Washington blew a 21-point lead.

"Every body need to shut up I didn't call out my coach or team mates I said I had a bad game need it n the post instead of jump shots," Blatche tweeted.

Blatche wasn't happy after the 90-84 defeat, saying afterward he wasn't being used to the best of his abilities.

After Monday's loss, Blatche was asked about Saunders observing that the team began to rely too much on individual efforts in the second quarter. Blatche scored 11 points on 5-for-13 shooting and was called for a technical for exchanging words with Kris Humphries.

"You can't keep having me pick-and-pop and shooting jump shots," Blatche said in the locker room. "Give me the ball in the paint. That's where I'm most effective at. I've been saying that since training camp: I need the ball in the paint. I don't want to be the pick-and-pop guy that I used to be. It's not working for me."


saunders - "But then he also has to understand that just because you get it at 17 feet, you don't have to shoot it either. I'm not twisting his arm to do that."
also... ???

Blatche has been known to be a bit of a wild card during his seven seasons in the Wizards locker room. But this outburst was exceptional because he had introduced himself as "your captain, Andray Blatche" to the crowd during a pregame speech -- and because the team is only one game into the season, playing under the theme "New Traditions."
how about this bit...

Before the lockout, Saunders gave Blatche a book titled "The 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player." Blatche has said he read about half of it. At media day following the lockout, owner Ted Leonsis said: "I talked to Andray, and he understands that the fan base, media are all looking to take cues on can his focus and dedication match his skills."

I was watching highlights on the Score and the commentator was totally burning Blatche. They showed some clips of Blatche getting the ball in the paint during last night's game against Atlanta, and all you saw was Blatche getting blocked or putting up a brick.
