Andray Blatche might not be on the Wizards this year, but he's still a topic of conversation in D.C., much to surprise of Blatche, and much to the chagrin of the current Wizards:
Media day done now off to camp— Trevor Booker (@35_Fitz) October 1, 2012

@drayblatche yea lol u kno I had yo back tho— Trevor Booker (@35_Fitz) October 1, 2012
Of course, it didn't stop there for Blatche saying notable things on Twitter. He stirred the pot on Friday when he took a shot at the Knicks on Twitter:
NYC the nets is yours no longer the Knicks— andray blatche (@drayblatche) September 28, 2012
Most of us are used to Blatche saying something overly ambitious this time of year, but it's good to see he's not saying anything about working out seven days a week or his willingness to die for the team yet. Still, his comments got him in some hot water, so on Monday he hopped back on clarify his statements and try to get people to back off.
Between the Knicks and nets thing it was a joke to jr ok relax CAN I LIVE— andray blatche (@drayblatche) October 1, 2012
Given the criticism he's faced since being drafted, it's pretty amazing he hasn't asked to live before now.
