Did andray blatche kill a lot of puppies or something?

He certainly could have.  Who knows what he learned from Gilbert.

Pretty sure the one thing Agent Zero taught him was to double-check the inside of his shoes before putting them on.

For the vet min you had nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Well, they didn't have a roster spot.  They gave that spot to Darko. 

And there is something to lose, if you start relying on him, and then he breaks, like he has in the past.  You don't lose money, but that sort of thing can really affect a team.

He is really the riskiest sort of player, because he is the type who can come in, and be great for a stretch, and then totally go off the reservation when you need him most.

You're reaching now.

I am only reaching to try to get across what I consider a very simple point.  The guy is a headcase, and I don't want him anywhere near this team.

Ok, if he gets out of control you cut him. Like i said, low risk high reward.

Ohhh, that Gilbert! The Wizards are the new Clippers.
My pic is now, and will be Fab Melo until he posts his first official NBA dbl-dbl. This may be permanent.

The thing is here he wouldn't be easily imploding the team by his absurd antics. It isn't easy for even Blatche to get out of control in the locker room with KG's presence around.
I'm not suggesting he would be tutored by KG to mature, but he would, for his own sake, have to shut his mouth up and sit down obediently at the very worst case.

What kind of player would Blatche be if he tried to imitate KG and PP, mouth-wise?  How likely would he be to try and do that if he were a Celtic?

Seriously, if he was such a bonehead and being a cancer/headcase, cut him.

And like I said, they made their choice on a low risk high reward guy in Darko.  Maybe they made the wrong choice.  I am not sure there was a right choice though.

You can't blame them. He ha a troubled past of being selfish, a cancer to the team and all.

I wante him here, I think his talents for the minimum are high reward. And the fact that he's on a complete image rebuild makes it low risk. I wanted him before the Darko news came out. And everyone disagreed and said "he'll just be a distraction, a headache". Well, he's proving us wrong in Brooklyn right now (outside of one thing).

And you can have him, right along with his "associates". I'm SO glad this guy came no where near the Celtics. As Doc states reputations aren't given, they're created. This guys a B-U-M.

A guy for the vet. Minimum. Whos producing better than our backup forward Brandon Bass and making less money? A guy who may have flaws but rebounding is not one of them, which is something we could really use? A guy who seems to be headed on the right path now outside of the Washington commebt and the recent sexual assault, who he may not be a part of, is a bum?

Then what makes the other forwards whos producing less and getting paud more? Ultra bums?

Andray Baltche has half a season of good but not great production as a backup 5, with a history of off-court issues and lockerroom cancerfication, in a contract year.

While at this point, it might have played out, and he most definitely would've filled a need, at the point of signing, he looked like a lemon with a rap sheet, and there is still a great chance that's what he'll revert to.

We've already seen it, he failed... in fact, I think KG made him cry or something.

blatche is helping his team win more games than anyone on the celtics bench. had 20 and 7 in 22 minutes. if jeff green had even one game like this everyone here would be raving about how much of a steal he is.
