Andray Blatche Cordially Invites You To, “C’mon Son”

Updated: December 23, 2009

In February 2010, Ed Lover will be 47-years old. C’mon Son.

Andray Blatche has probably never even heard of Yo! MTV Raps, where Lover sewed his celebrity oats back in the early 90s. Now, Lover is staying relevant with the young generation via his “C’mon Son” internet shtick.

Hope I’m still relevant when I’m damn near a quinquagenarian. Of course, at age 29, a soon-to-be tricenarian (in about six months), I’m not sure how “relevant” I am now.

Prior to the December 12th game versus the Pacers, I tweeted my discovery of a “C’mon Son” cardboard sign that Andray Blatche had stowed away in his locker.

On Tuesday after the Sixers game, I stopped him for a question as he was making his way out of the locker room. At first, he joked, “I don’t want to talk to you!!”, but then gladly obliged and led a couple members of the media back to his locker to talk … after he had been told/asked to take off his beanie hat by Wizards game-night host Dolph Sand.

As Andray conspicuously pulled the sign out of his locker and tucked it next to him, I asked about the well-discussed ‘five men in, five men out’ hot-button topic. He answered. (See the video at the bottom of this post.)

Andray was then all ready to make his very own “C’mon Son!” debut … but Gilbert Arenas came calling. Not Gilbert himself, but the media scrum that began to surround him beckoned any other member of the media toward it like a powerful magnet.

You see, with these post-game locker room media sessions, all it takes is for one single media member to go up to a player and ask a question (usually while everyone else is looking, waiting, plotting, planning, doing nothing) … and then POOF!, you have a full on scrum of humanity surrounding said player.

So, as the microphones of a couple reputable media organizations quickly pulled the rug out from under Andray’s “C’mon Son” media spotlight, the look of disappointment you see below came across his face.

I didn’t really have another question for Blatche … (and who am I kidding? I wanted to go populate amongst the Agent Zero media masses myself) … but I kinda felt bad for the guy, so I turned my camera back on for a second and captured Blatche’s “C’mon Son” moment you see at the top of this post.

Guess there’s not much left to say other than … C’mon son.
