If Only The Spurs Had Signed Andray Blatche

When I first saw the headline on hoopshype, I immediately thought somehow I bet Blatche is involved in this. Now He is NOT being charged, it's just that this took place in his hotel suite

Way to make Brooklyn proud!Nets forward Andray Blatche found himself embroiled in a scandal after a night out on the town in Philadelphia ended with a 21-year-old woman calling cops to his hotel suite early yesterday — saying she had been sexually assaulted by at least one of his pals.


Sources said the woman, a stripper at a Philly club where Blatche, 26, and a handful of friends were celebrating his contract being guaranteed through the end of the season, followed the group back to the Four Seasons hotel suite along with two other exotic dancers.


A source at the strip club said the group was the last to leave and all were all very drunk.
The accuser told cops she was sexually assaulted at around 3:30 a.m.



Blatche was questioned by police early yesterday and released, after which he tweeted, “I’m ok and I didn’t do anything jus was n the area when it happened.” He later pulled down the tweet.
Philadelphia’s police commissioner, speaking to The New York Times, cast doubt on the woman’s credibility.



“She was so intoxicated,” Commissioner Charles Ramsey told the paper. “She is not going to be a very good witness. From all accounts, [Blatche] was not personally involved . . . He was there, but he was not involved.”


But a local TV news station painted a different picture.
Cops allegedly found date-rape drugs in the suite and compromising photos of the victim on Blatche’s cellphone, ABC-6 Philadelphia reported.


Last night, cops were still interviewing two people who were in the suite at the time of the alleged assault, sources told The Post. Four others — including Blatche — had been released.
“It really is a case of being with the wrong friends in the wrong place,” an NBA source told The Post.

Drunk, 3am, with his 'wrong' friends in his room. 4 wrong friends, drunk with one woman. Sad. Brooklyn fans have to be proud after the Nets guaranteed his contract.

Ok, I know this is going to sound bad no matter how I say it, but the woman should hold SOME accountability here too. Yes, no means no. But obviously this chick was "at work", saw dollar bills and wanted a part of it. If this was a rape, they should be prosecuted, but women need to be smart too.

Jumping to huge conclusions. Blatche is hardly unique among NBA players for taking some time at strip clubs after work, and the Philly cops haven't made any moves against him. Let's give the guy a break until something substantive arises.

What about the two Longhorn players who were sent home before the Alamo Bowl accused of wrong doing? Seems like a set up to me in both cases. These athletes are targets. They mess up true but not always. The police detained AB for questioning and released him. So what he was not charged. Big deal.

When I was picked up as a juvenile for drinking under age, the policeman told me ‘ignorance of the law is no excuse’. But what broke my back was the judge telling me he never wanted to see me in his court again and I told him I didn’t want to see him either. The bailiff, a guy who blocked out the sun, escorted me out of the court. No more run-ins with the law, straight arrow am I, and sober too. Everybody needs a little reality check every once in a while.
