Andray Blatche to return after week away from team

After spending four games away from the team for personal reasons, Brooklyn Nets backup center Andray Blatche returned to the team today, according to reporters at the team’s shootaround. Kidd announced Blatche’s departure before the team’s victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on December 27th, saying that he’d be away from the team for “personal reasons.” […]

Andray Blatche Cheering Himself On In NBA 2K14 Is As Blatche As It Gets

The Brooklyn Nets haven’t had the easiest season in recent memory: after believing they’d compete for a championship, at 9-19 they’d probably just settle for making the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference. But even in a time of doom and gloom, Nets center Andray Blatche can find some modicum of happiness, in succeeding as […]

Brook’s out. Now what?

Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd has his biggest challenge yet. With no move imminent and a deep rotation, he’s looking towards his bench to fill the enormous gap left by a broken foot to Nets center Brook Lopez, which will sideline him for the rest of the season.

Gilbert Arenas wanted to play for the Nets, reunite with Andray Blatche, which is a bad idea

It’s been a long time since former NBA point guard Gilbert Arenas helped an NBA team; at his peak, Arenas averaged 28.9 points per game over two seasons with the Washington Wizards from 2005-07, but hasn’t been an effective player for a full season since that time. He’s battled knee injuries and off-court issues alike, […]

(Note: SPONSORED POST) Close your eyes and imagine a landfill. I want you to envision all the foul smelling items you have disposed of recently mixed in: expired food, dead rat carcasses stuck in mouse traps, human vomit, and all the other wretched things left to never be seen again in those horrible places. Try […]

A Futile Effort: Pistons 103, Nets 99

Paul Pierce, Kyle Singler, Greg Monroe

What once appeared was to be another ho-hum blowout for an indifferent Brooklyn Nets team lacking the services of a key player turned into a furious comeback attempt that just couldn’t come through. Nets fans justifiably aching, clawing to assign definite blame in a close loss will point to Andray Blatche’s two missed free throws […]

Mason Plumlee Reaches Into Stratosphere And Throws Down The Alley-OOP From Andray Blatche

The Brooklyn Nets didn’t have a lot of athleticism last year, and their point guards this year have struggled with injuries. No more problems there. Watch as point center Andray Blatche lofted an alley-oop from beyond the three-point line a little too high, and Mason Plumlee, the seven-footer with the 36″ vertical, reaches high above […]
