It's been a weird two seasons in Brooklyn for the enigmatic Andray Blatche, who waffled between his status as a minus defender & off-court troublemaker and arguably the league's best off-the-bench scoring big man. But there's one constant throughout his two years: Blatche was one of the most entertaining big men we've ever seen don a Nets uniform on the court.

But Blatche's time in the NBA has come to a pause, as Blatche will reportedly sign a one-year deal with China's Xinjiang Flying Tigers for over $2 million.

To remember him properly, here's a collection of our favorite Andray Blatche GIFs and images we've shared in his time in Brooklyn.

Nets point guard Jorge Gutierrez is currently the only active player in the NBA of Mexican descent. That's a huge accomplishment, but basketball is not his only forte. He does have some nice hair too.

Jorge didn’t always rock that slick, gelled-back hairstyle, so please join me in this transient journey through the “Evolution of Jorge’s Hair”.

HIGH SCHOOL: Jorge spent his teenage years in the depths of Nevada, attending Findlay Prep High School. You can definitely believe that he was the real chick magnet with this “long hair, don’t care look”.

"It was a dunk, not a flush. There's a difference. ... I’m going to give it to him. He’s gone up about three times now with great courage.”
-Plumlee, on Deron Williams’s hotly contested first dunk of the season
