Late Wednesday night, Andray Blatche’s Twitter account posted the following:
“Lol love it or hate it I’m here forever lol”
When a fan asked him what he meant, he made sure to declare that he meant he was going to be in Washington forever…even if he was traded.
And then he opened the flood gates.
As of just after 2:00 AM early Thursday morning, Blatche had been responding to nearly every one of his mentions on Twitter.
One of the highlights was his exchange with Wizznutzz asking if he could come work out with Blatche.
But it didn’t stop there. One person decided to call Blatche out on the many blunders of his time here in DC, to which Blatche got on his defensive…you know, in that Andray sort of way.
He also proceeded to correct the same person that the Lapdance Tuesday he hosted was not at a strip club.
There were instances when one might be lead to believe that someone had hacked Blatche’s account (but not in the way it was ‘hacked’ when he challenged a follower to a fist fight; I’m talking seriously hacked, here.) But for some reason, it’s not too unrealistic to believe that Blatche really is making light of everything and answering everyone as a means to get back on the good side of the fans of Washington D.C.
The string of tweets was enough to believe it really is him. The selling point for me is that he’s had these sorts of outbursts from time to time on his account before. Also, if someone was hacking his account, they got his lack of spelling and grammar down better than I could have.
Also, all of Dray’s tweets (including ones before last night) have been posted via a blackberry mobile phone. So unless he lost his phone and someone is tweeting from it, I have a strong suspicion that Blatche is the man behind the keyboard.
Whether or not this truly was him (as of 2:30AM, he was still tweeting his followers), there’s no doubt he’s caused some sort of raucous in the Washington Wizards organization.
Could he be outsmarting all the fans and really just doing this to try and get out of Washington? Could it be that Dray just had six too many drinks last night? Or was his phone really stolen?
Either way, one thing is for sure. He’s ready to die for this account.
