Steve Blake Discussion: Traded To Warriors

:what: A couple seasons ago he wasn't playing like he he has since Nash started being unavailable. He really has been playing well ever since when he's not stuck at SG. Well…. when he has been "available" off and on.

Edit: Well maybe you're just referring to the staying healthy part, not his play. Then yeah has been a big problem.

its one thing to play hard and go balls out and get hurt on the floor like say a G. Wallace type who nickname is Crash for a reason. Its another to have weird freak accidents type injuries like Blake, I can't imagine to many other players who can pull a rib muscle and be out months by merely dribbling awkwardly like he did either last season or the season before.

Steve Blake: "It still hurts when I shoot." He was 2-for-11 Tuesday.


Mike Trudell ‏@LakersReporter 1m
Blake's elbow is very much still bothering him and affecting his shot. It's painful when he shoots, and limits his ability to even practice.

I've warmed up to Mitch over the years for his moves but if Blake is brought back someone in front office needs to get fired.

I don't mind having Blake on the team, but he's better as an asset. I can totally foresee LA bringing him back for multiple years at >$3M - and that's crazy.

^^^From what I've seen earlier in the year even when Blake was playing well, I'd rather mgmt. spend that money on Farmar. Blake game mostly consist of perimiter shooting and simple basic passes, which is fine. But farmar can penetrate the D and create much more open shot for others or takes it to rack himself.

Blake brings a fire to the team that I can really appreciate. I think he'd make a good locker room presence. But he's certainly not worth more than the minimum if you're paying multiple years.

That's an understatement.

Actually, I do like Blake. He is a leader, plays hard, the whole team plays better when he's around. If it is impossible to trade him, I would not object to paying him the minimum to stay -- if he's not playing heavy minutes anymore.

"Minimum" being the key word here, if we can't trade him first.

No thanks to Blake in the future. Dude's been hurt and/or underachieved every single year here. It's gone on too long and he makes way too much for this at 4-5 million each year during his stay.

what about his first couple years here with the team. what if he reverts back to that?

lets get younger and more talented.

i never wanted blake here, hes not a PG that can play next to kobe. its a wonder why we even got him, hes too much a traditional PG to play with kobe.

I agree: younger and more talented. That's why my first option would be to trade him. Second option is not keeping Blake. Third option is keeping him for the minimum. I would not be thrilled about it, but I would not complain either.

So, I agree, except with that last part. Kobe can play with other talented players - point guards, centers and so on. But that's not even important, since we're not building around Kobe anymore. We need a new star to build around as soon as possible.

If Blake's coming back for Minimum, okay. Mitch and D'Antoni are in love with the guy. That scares me.

Blake will be just another in a long line of "names" that will get playing time no matter who we have or how much we have to jack up the players positions to make it work.

Do not want back. Let him get smoked playing SG some place else.

I don't know if I'd want him back even for the minimum. He misses so many games with strange injuries that I think I'd rather invest in someone younger even if they're unproven.

I would take him back as long as D'antoni is our coach next season.. He makes Blake look like Nash when he's healthy. At the very least we could bring him back on a friendly contract & build his stats up to trade him to fill another need.

He's injury prone and will be another year older when we have younger alternatives (Marshall, Farmar). Only way I would take him back, is if he asks for less money and is open to a 1 year deal, which is highly unlikely.

I'd love to have Blake back if he was our 3rd string PG...

but he has seniority/tenure or whatever the NBA equivalent is, so apparently, he has to start and play in front of better players, even though he doesn't run the offense or create plays as well as Farmar or Marshall.... so if that's the case... no... I don't want him back.

I do not want any player who gets injured every freakin year. I want this house to be completely cleared less a couple guys.
