Andray Blatche Attends ‘Lapdance Tuesdays,’ Upsets Wizards Owner

by May 15, 2011

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.'”
