He is still the same knucklehead. He just hasn't done anything yet this season.
I think you are in denial. Surely he would be better than an empty roster spot...
I would much prefer the empty roster spot over Blatche. He is still a bum and always will be. Yes he had a good game last night against a team that didnt show up, but it could have been even better but he missed 3 wide open layups and made some careless plays and dumb fouls.
All players make careless plays and dumb fouls.
I don't know man, but I'd rather have that bum's 9 points, 5 rebounds, 45% shooting in 17 minutes over an empty roster spot, heck, over Collins.
The man is on a mission to fix his NBA image. Yes that Washington thing and bashing them was dumb but nothing really happened other than that. He lost weight, he's not lazy on the defensive end anymore and he's playing really good basketball in that role.
And we can't use the "well of course he's playing good, he's under a non guaranteed contract" excuse. Washington is still paying his previous contract. He will make 7 million even if he doesn't play. This man is really realizing how much he wasted and is now trying to fix it.
I believe we any let that image of his out of our head. But hey, so far outside of one dumb move he's been good.
