So much for the saying nothing good happens after midnight,
With JaVale McGee and Nick Young traded, the Washington Wizards lost much of their charm. However they still have Andray Blatche around.
The mercurial big man has been shutdown by coach Randy Wittman until he gets his body in shape.
“We thought we could maybe try to play him into shape once he got back,” [Randy] Wittman told the Washington Post. “After looking at it, it’s unfair for me to put him in that position. and I think what we’re going to do, we’re going to probably not play him for a while, get him on a program here, where he can really go after it from a conditioning standpoint to get himself back into shape. It’s not fair for me to do that to the kid.”
Wizards fans have taken out much of their frustration on Blatche, the team is just 2-11 with him as a starter. In spite of what has often been called half-hearted play, he has increased his scoring average in each of his first six professional seasons.
The next bizarre twist is that Blatche has been working on his conditioning by hitting the gym in the middle of the night. The Washington Post reports the Wizards forward has been working out after 3 a.m.
Blatche seemed to inform his 13,601 followers that he worked out at 3:32 a.m. this morning.
