So Andray Blatche is playing in a "party people's" summer league catered to those who love the partying lifestyle: the nightclubs, the bars, the "lapdance Tuesdays".

And he's doing pretty well, supposedly.

He's consistently getting double-doubles, he scored over 40 points in a game the other night and he also seems to be conditioned enough to play the game.

It almost makes you want to give the guy a second (erm...it would actually be the seventh chance) this season if you're Ernie Grunfeld.

But wait. Let's take a better look at this.

There are no other "big names" in this league that I can see from the league's website (www.gametimelifestyle.com). Not to offend anyone else he's playing with, but none of these other guys are in the NBA.

And Blatche's team has still lost a game in this league.

It's fantastic that Blatche is killing it in this league, but this is not the NBA official summer league. This is a bunch of guys who are trying to make a name for themselves in what looks very much like a community basketball league.

It probably isn't hard for Blatche to rack up 42 points and 18 rebounds when everyone else in the league appears to be undersized and less talented.

In the same way, it's not hard for me to outperform a fifth grade class on their SOL tests.

Don't let these stats fool you, Blatche still has the same mentality and immaturity that he's always had no matter if he's improved on the court. He's still a liability, and is currently making a mockery of the Washington Wizards while he plays for a league who's big sponsored event is "Wine Vault Thursdays".

Dray never ceases to amaze me as a fan, but I've got to hope that maybe he or the team will realize that this is more of the type of basketball association he should be playing for instead of the one he's consistently taken for granted.
