The most surprising thing about this video, which shows Andray Blatche checking in during the first quarter in Washington for the first time as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, is the fact that the broadcaster reminds us that Blatche played for the Wizards for seven (!) seasons.
Blatche was known for whatever the opposite of effort is during his time in DC, and made some of the least intelligent basketball decisions on the court at the professional level that you would ever hope to see.
As a result, and as expected, Blatche was booed heartily by the few fans in attendance when he entered the game, but strangely, was cheered by most when he scored on his first shot attempt.
Abusive relationships aren’t easy to get out of, and Wizards fans who actually would cheer anything Blatche does with another team clearly have not yet gotten over the scarring of the Blatche years in Washington.
