One Game In, Wizards Captain Andray Blatche Expresses His Frustrations On Twitter

The Washington Wizards blew a big lead on Monday night's opener against the New Jersey Nets and captain Andray Blatche expressed his frustration after the game, both in the locker room and on twitter. Blatche, who gave the team's "thank you" address to the fans before the game, was apparently displeased with where he was getting the ball on the offensive end.

I may have had a bad game but that's cause I need the ball in the post not taking jump shots all game

Blatche was five of 13 from the floor, scoring 11 points. He managed to get to the free throw line only twice in the six point loss to New Jersey. He was also issued a technical foul in the first half when he briefly mixed it up with Kris Humphries. But as the captain, it didn't take long - one game - for Blatche to create some off-court drama by announcing his frustrations in public.

Frontcourt mate JaVale McGee went for the much more subtle and innocuous tweet to express his frustrations:
