Andray Blatche Attends ‘Lapdance Tuesdays,’ Upsets Wizards Owner

Oh, Andray. Not sure what made you think this was a good idea: “You might have thought Wizards forward Andray Blatche attended Game 2 of the Celtics-Heat series so he could inhale the playoff atmosphere and perhaps pass that experience along to his teammates. But no. Blatche was in Miami to make an appearance at an event called ‘Lapdance Tuesdays’ at a South Beach club. Blatche has often been criticized for his immaturity, and attaching your name to an event like that doesn’t exactly scream leadership. Wizards owner Ted Leonsis told a Washington-area radio station that he wasn’t pleased with the promotion. ‘The Wizards being associated with that is unacceptable,’ he said. ‘We’re not happy with that, and neither is he. The way those things tend to happen are not well understood. Sometimes celebrities get an appearance fee, and someone goes and markets them. Andray is a very gifted player, and we know this is a very important summer for him. He needs to come back and be in unbelievable shape with unbelievable determination, because he needs to prove he’s a really, really good player and that he can win. He gets it. The proof will be in the pudding, but he understands it.’”

    Blatche’s next promotional endeavor should be attaching his name to a tour. For example: Andray Blatche presents Nicki Minaj’s Lapdancing Across America Tour featuring Chris Paul and Steve Nash. I think that would be a hit.

    This was not a smart thing to attach your name too as an NBA player! It sounds as if Ted Leonsis is getting fed up with some of these antics and things will change one way or another.

    I’ll say it for the 20th time. Trade this chump. With regards to the lapdance. Shouldn’t of publiscised it. Does he really need the appearance fee?
