Im not saying it is... but talking to a specialist and taking more tests DEF IS! It's not the first time this ish happens with a Lakers player. Good thing Blake sucks but im starting to worry about the other Steve.

And maybe to avoid having to go in and cut him, the specialists said to wait and see if it will heal on its own? How is that so hard to believe?


Oh, that's right, it doesn't fit the agenda of "the Lakers have a terrible training staff".....

Well, we all said that the biggest issue this season would be health and unfortunately we've been hampered in that department. I'm fine with Duhon as the main backup instead of Blake, though. I think he's played pretty well for us thus far.

I didn't know that Farmar was available. I would take him over Morris anyway, esp in this system. Duhon starting and Farmar off the bench would be great. Farmar can't defend well, not even close to Morris, but he is just as fast, sees the floor a little better, and scores much better - esp from 3 and finishing a break (remember that dunk on KG). I bet MDA could do wonders with him - since he can make guys pay for going under screens.

Sure, West would be ideal, but Farmar would be nice too.

It is always up to the player if they want surgery early on or wait it out. Last I heard it was a problem with his abdominal muscles, who would have thought that sort of injuries require surgery? I sure didn't, thought a few weeks rest should fix the problem...

IIRC, Shaq needed surgery on his abdominal muscles once.

who else wanted Fish to be the on to take that game winning shot in what game 3 was it? in the OKC series last year?


Sessions/Fish > Sessions/Blake

oh how i wished we had gotten rid of blake instead of fish.


but would fish really would have wanted to start over sessions if said scenario was there?

was that the main reason he was let go instead of blake? or was it financial issues. i mean it couldn't of been because Blake is a better defender or offensive player, because hes none of those.

No one wanted Blake that "was" the problem.

I forgot this guy already with Duhon doing an absolutely splendid job

i honestly cant wait for him to get back. hes not an amzing player or anything but he brings it EVERY game. he is an extremely scrappy defender and doesnt back down from anyone. i think his energy and feistiness on defense would be good for our perimeter D. hes not gunna be amazing or anything but it would be a step up in that department from what we have.

I don't think D'antoni was just paying lip service when he praised Blake and talked about how he's wanted him for the last 10 years. It was a bit of an exaggeration, but it's clear that D'antoni's system is great for PG's. I think Blake can help us out a lot more than Duhon. He's a better passer and although Duhon's been shooting the three better, I feel like Duhon doesn't actually position himself to get many good three point looks. Blake actually moves around and spots up in positions where he can receive a pass for an open three.

This is probably just hopeful thinking, but I think we might actually see glimpses of the Steve Blake we thought we signed three years ago.

once hes healthy and back in game shape i believe we will. if duhon can look as good as he has some games then blake easily can too. wont be every game, but well see the blazers blake we wanted sometimes im sure. better than the blake weve had so far; id bet money on that.

Do not want. Blake literally isn't good at anything.

Duhon isn't good because he isn't playing any consistent minutes. Same with Morris. If either one gets 20 minutes consistently, they out-perform Blake at least 7 times in 10 games.

i think he's a better overall pg than duhon or morris, assuming he returns to his normal self. that doesn't mean he's good; it just means he's short of cringe-worthy.
