Frustrated Chot Reyes on Blatche's Non-Appearance

Gilas Pilipinas Head coach Chot Reyes is already fed up with the excuses of Gilas naturalized player Andray Blatche on his delayed arrival once again.

The coach stated that he expected Blatche to finally show up to the national team’s evening practice at Meralco Gym on Tuesday as he starts to shape up the Gilas for the upcoming 2017 Southeast Asia Basketball Association (SEABA) Championships in May.

But the birth of Blache's son, Andray Jr., kept the Gilas player in the United States and delayed his arrival to the Philippines.

“He called me right after his girlfriend gave birth to their son. Supposed to be, he should be here. But then, he was asked to stay for the christening and the word is he will arrive on Friday,” Reyes said, “He could’ve easily made it here today. He asked to stay but I told them by Friday, what will be their excuse? He’s giving lots of excuses, so we just have to live with it and make that decision when we need to.” He then bluntly added.

Reyes flashed how really upset he was with the delay, to the point that he made an ultimatum to replace Blatche if he doesn't arrive over the week.

“I’m very upset with the unfolding of events. Andray knows it and his handlers know it. And as I’ve said, if another problem pops up, we will replace him.” the dismayed mentor said at the end of Gilas practice.

Coach Reyes dissapointments and frustrations made him doubt the words coming out from Blatche's side.

“His guarantee doesn’t mean a thing to me. He has a lot of guarantees that he doesn’t accomplish.”
