Brooklyn Nets: Andray Blatche Deservingly Let Off on Sexual Assault Case, Despite Creepy Involvement

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

 

The Brooklyn Nets have had quite the offseason in adding Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in a trade with the Boston Celtics. Now that their star-studded lineup is set, people are already talking championship in Brooklyn.

One of the more underrated signings of the offseason for Brooklyn was bringing back reserve big man Andray Blatche. He was instrumental in their playoff run, giving them solid minutes off the bench on both sides of the ball.

The offseason just got a little better for Blatche, specifically, as he has been let off of any wrongdoing in a sexual assault case occurring at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia back in January of this year, according to ESPN. 

The report had a 21 year-old woman telling police that she had consensual sexual relations with one man and non-consensual sexual relations with another man. Blatche, meanwhile, stood by the door watching and ‘did nothing to stop the alleged assault.’

Let’s ignore the plain, creepy fact that Blatche stood by watching this entire incident and focus on the fact that he did nothing wrong. The woman was said to be intoxicated at the moment — 3:30 a.m. — and would not have been a viable witness according to officials.

This could simply be a case of a woman trying to bleed a professional athlete of any financial reward she could get. In fact, I’m sure that’s exactly what this is. Fortunately for Blatche, he has been cleared and can re-focus on the upcoming season where his Nets have championship aspirations to seek after.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
