Do Celtics Fans Want Andray Blatche!!! 

Post#1 » by God MC » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:19 am

I'm a sixer fan first & foremost, but my best friend is a Celtics fan. We are argue about whether blatche would be a good fit on your team. He he doesn't want that cancer on his team . but I remind him Zach Randolph was once considered a cancer and got it right.

I think its a low risk high reward. Dude has a ton load of talent. I think on a team with ur veteran presence, and the KG influence. He could be the perfect big man to complete your frontcourt. He maybe able to be salvaged and what better way to do it than having KG as his mentor.

Has he been amnestied? I'd take him in a heartbeat if he was. There is a reason he is an amnesty candidate, but I do not think he is the cancer he gets credit for being. And he is still young with obvious talent.

ETA by the stats, ignoring last season I have him as a quality player 2009-2011 who had shown improvement since entering the league. He could have just been out to earn a contract but I feel his troubles last year were more lockout / bad situation related moreso than him sucking after he earned his contract. Not that last season reflects well on him and not that I say that with confidence, but for cheap he is very low risk.

This.

We got rid of the clowns for a reason, no need to bring on one of the biggest cancers in the league.

When the wizards send you home you know you have a problem.

The only benefit I could see in signing him is being able to then cut him. This would allow us to roll out the 'addition by subtraction' line, and claim to have improved our team.

Don't want him. At all.

He looks like he sweats cooking oil. He should save his towels and sell them to fast food restaurants. Could make for a nice side business.

No way. The Celtics don't need a head case like that.

Wiretap says he is "likely " to be amnestied. I think he has a lot of talent, but he won't make it off of waivers IMO. KG and him aren't the best of buds either. There was talk at the last trade deadline that he might be available. In the right system he may flourish.

well its a high reward low risk move if you get him for the right price. a year with kg barking at him would do him a lot of good

He's beat KG's ass 3 times, like a real beat down.
1. I don't know if I want KG being worn down in practice by this guy
2. He's a cancer and I don't want him near our young guys.

if he signs for the minimum, ABSOLUTELY. a stretch 4 is always useful at a good price and he is bulky enough to play a bit of the 5. Steimer AINT coming back and for people who are counting on melo playing this year.... :lol:

I don't know about the cancer talk, that whole wizards organization was pretty terrible last season. He's obviously got talent and may flourish somewhere else, though I wouldn't bet money on it. What I can bet money on is he'll probably get paid half decent money as a big with potential and it's not worth the gamble for the C's. Cheap, one year contract I'd take a flyer on him though.
