Nets Andray Blatche works on his Euro-step on Fifth Avenue

Brooklyn Nets reserve big man Andray Blatche did a lot to revive a career that was headed toward being a disaster after being amnestied by the Washington Wizards in 2012. He went from being a highly disappointing player to being a key reserve for a good Nets team that made a big leap after committing a lot of money to the trio of Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, and Brook Lopez last summer.

The question is can he keep this up for more than one year? He seemed motivated to make the Wizards pay for his time with them and giving up on him after signing him to such a big, long-term contract. To keep last year from being a fluke, Blatche has to keep working on his game. Based on the video he posted on Instagram, he has no problem turning the world into his gym as he practices Euro-steps on Fifth Avenue.
