Cry me a river.

How mentally weak can you be?  The home crowd is booing you because you are terrible.  If you weren’t terrible they wouldn’t boo you.  The fact that boos are your excuse to why you can’t perform at a high level is a good indicator why Blatche will never live up to his potential.  No one wants Blatche.  Not the Wizards or any other team in the league

“It’s tough. You’re home and people that’s supposed to have your back don’t have your back,” a dejected Blatche said after the game. “Instead of encouraging you to get better, they push you down and hope you do worse. It’s not only hurting me it’s hurting my teammates. That’s what I feel most upset about because I can’t come out and perform, help my teammates because I’m letting the crowd get to my head, making me second guess, not letting me be the player that I am. It’s very frustrating I’m just hopefully trying to fight over it and overcome.”

“Every time I touch the ball, I’m second-guessing. I’m trying to avoid the boos, trying to play a perfect game so I don’t have to hear it so I can help my team win,” Blatche added. “It’s got to the point now where I come in and sub in the boos are coming. It’s not even a point of giving me a chance. I’m going to continue to try and work. Hopefully something will happen for me, I don’t know.”

I would continue to boo him just for this super soft statement.

Man up.

    I’m going to continue saying this…even it it contributes to the lost of my credibility – Blatche has the talent and ability to be one of the better players in the league, however, he has no work ethic at all. At the professional level, this is no longer a game. It’s a job and has to be approached that way.

    His statement does reflect his “softness”. Plus the fans and his teammates want him out of Washington at this point. He has had a number of opportunities to redeem himself and has failed miserably.
