I know this could end up being fodder for another Nets related hate/love session but it does need to be brought up.


Andray Blatche after an awful statistical season the last 2-ish years is having a substantially great season (for the minutes he is given)
While only getting around 19~ MPG Blatche has:
Reb% of 19.2 (the best i could find in players near his rotation spot)
OffRTG of 99.8
DefRTG of 96.1 which is odd if you watched him the last two years in Washington
His APER & PER are the highest they've been (20.44 & 21.010
'Dray is also attempting about 3 less 16-23 footers a game (which could be correlated to his pt) while also taking more shots at the rim for a higher % (62%)

paraphrasing a Tom Haberstrogh tweet "Only Duncan, Love and Cousins have matched Blatche's scoring and rebounding on a per-minute basis this season."

So do you think this version of Andray Blatche is for real or just a small sample size that'll even out as the season plays on?

I guess a poorly worded title, the post is really more about what he is doing with his minutes compared to other players in his rotational spot, which is surprising considering who Blatche was last year.

I think with so little number of traditional centers, it can only mean good things for him, he's got pure talent, but sometimes, although not as much as he used to, he's still make dumb mistakes.....

It was a no lose situation for the Nets. A no brainer. I was very surprised to see so few teams take an interest in him. Yes, he was immature, but if he didn't produce and get back on track, it's only a vet min contract? Just waive him.


As it turns out, a change of environment has helped him. I hope he keeps this level of play up.

That said, I was hoping to post this before DMF ;-)

Hes been solid but hes still a chucker. Thats not a good offensive rtg if true

Punk

He's playing great on both ends. He's been getting 70% of his offensive through Deron but he came into that Boston game earlier last week and grabbed 10 rebounds in 10 minutes against KG and Bass.

He definitely wants to succeed.

yeah he's playing well so far, i wish the heat had grabbed him when they had the chance. at the time it was a tough call with his issues, but it looks like he would of been a perfect backup for bosh. good for the nets.

the talent is there obviously, what he needs now is maturity and consistency.
I hoped the celtics would take the risk and sign him.

He's obviously better than the likes of Milicic/collins/melo
and arguably better than sullinger/bass/wilcox

A. I am in no way a Nets fan. Frankly i think the team still has a lot to prove and is about as exciting to watch as any other average NBA team.

B. Blatche is an interesting case because he was a recent amnesty player and NOT a player that just received a $44 Million extension after an okay 3 years as a starting PG.

The question was never if Blatche had the skill because he is one of the most skilled bigs in the league. His head was just never into the game. He is/was lazy and too worried about accolades then helping his team win.

You can lol all u want but yes, Nets will be in the playoffs without lopez...We have stars that are still playing mediocre basketball....the difference between sixers and nets is depth, you gonna need your players to play at a highest level just to get in the lower seeds....

Um Sixers are and may be without Bynum for the season (or forever) and will be in the playoffs too. Top 6 team in the East at worst without Bynum and still will beat the Nets in a 7 game series. But hey power to you if you really think the Nets can win without Lopez and D-Will and JJ playing at a low level....

Lets be real. For a player who was not even expected to play in the league this year, hes doing very well for himself.

Many wrote him off and now hes been impressive with some starting minutes, I think its somewhat thread worthy. (Not saying this as a Nets fan, I'd make the same argument if he was doing this somewhere else)
