After the Washington Wizards decided to clean house by trading Brendan Hayward, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, and DeShawn Stevenson, forward Andray Blatche became the team's most consistent player, averaging 23.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. Last night Blatche, in a game against the Charlotte Hornets, was benched after 7 minutes, 31 seconds by Coach Flip Saunders for failure to get back on defense. Blatche, who is known for his immaturity and lack of a work ethic, unilaterally decided that he had had it for night and refused to reenter the game. If the Wizards organization has any substance and credibility, it would immediately suspend Blatche for the remainder of the season for insubordination.
