Default A glance at Blatche's season for Nets

When Blatche was amnestied by the Wizards last summer, some wondered if he would ever get another NBA job again after his tumultuous tenure in the nationís capital, including sitting out most of last season, first with a calf injury and then because Washington simply didnít want him around any longer.

But after going to work out with John Lucas in Houston over the summer, Blatche met with then-coach Avery Johnson, who was convinced to give Blatche a chance with the Nets, basically guaranteeing him a roster spot.

No one could have known it at the time, but it turned out to be a master stroke for the Nets, as Blatche wound up becoming one of the teamís key contributors this season. He was the only player to suit up and play in all 82 games, and teamed with Brook Lopez to form one of the NBAís best 1-2 punches at the center spot, and easily its best from an offensive standpoint.
