Blatche Uses Lack of Support as Motivation

Andray Blatche doesn’t want to talk about his roller-coaster past with the Wizards, but he isn’t forgetting it either.
The Nets reserve forward, in fact, is using it as motivation.
The 6-foot-11 Syracuse product chose to wear No. 0 after signing with Brooklyn, a reminder of the amount of support he felt he had after the Wizards used the amnesty clause to rid themselves of the remainder of his three-year, $23 million contact.
“Everybody thought I was going to be out of the league,” Blatche said. “Zero reminds me I didn’t have any support system outside of my immediate family, nobody who thought I was going to bounce back and get on another team.”
