Before the matinee against the Utah Jazz on Monday, several members of the media kinda/sorta gathered around Andray Blatche — who vies with Nick Young for biggest locker room personality now that Gilbert Arenas is gone. But it wasn’t really in a formal, recorded Q&A session sense … just a gathering to hear whatever was on Andray’s mind as he sat at his locker.
And since it was a day taken to reflect upon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Blatche started talking about his own dreams — of a basketball nature — and it seemed like nonsense. Or at least the manner in which Dray’s dreams were conveyed seemed to be in an unintentional, thinking-out-loud regard … does anyone remember when Kelly Bundy used to do this on Married With Children?
Blatche first said he dreamt of a win against the Jazz, owners of one of the ten best records in the league heading into the game, which would also mean the Wizards’ first victory against a winning team on the season and their first two-game win streak. Second, Blatche said he dreamt of a road win. A media member quipped something about the auspiciousness of Blatche’s creative mind … chuckles and an air of ‘gotcha’ emerged from the gallery, along with Andray himself. Blatche then said that he woke up, went back to sleep, and later dreamt of the playoffs.
Clearly we’re just having fun here, right? … Just jokes amongst the people who have to put up with each other all year (I think). Blatche probably has dreams of various natures involving anything from the Shadow Room to the Chipotle Burrito Dash as well. What exactly are we seriously talking about here? Playoffs Jim Mora, the playoffs.
