There isn't a single player coming back from injury I could be less exited or more indifferent about. He and Duhon are essentially the same player, neither can drive and score, neither rack up the assists, neither play good d, neither shoot very good on threes.

well I guess if it means no Morris at all I'm for it, at least this scrub will understand basics and not even bother trying to get into the paint so he can get his ish pushed back into his face like Meeks/Morris do.

So maybe another 2 weeks for a full contact practice then another few weeks until he can play? After that he'll probably need about a month to be back in game shape.

Center Court wrote:like I said then, Farmar > Blake

like I said this off season, Sessions > Blake

the correct move was to amnesty Blake for Sessions... who basically was looking for the contract that Blake got.

I do think that he'd be a much better back up then Duhon, but neither are good enough.

Delonte West is still out there and now seems like a good time


NOBODY said Farmar>Blake when Farmar left and Blake was signed :man10:

Thats a good point. I remember thinking Blake was a better fit when we signed him.

With hindsight being 20/20 farmar would have fit nicely in a D'Antoni offense.

Im slightly excited for Blake's return lol only because we're adding one more 3 point shooter to the roster

Steve Blake practiced with the team Saturday. Will he play vs. New Orleans on Tuesday? "I think he’s got a shot," said D'Antoni.


Have a feeling we might see Duhon/Blake/Meeks in the 2nd unit when Pau/Dwight are on the court in the 2nd Q

We seriously have no reason to be happy about his return other than it's good that a human being is feeling healthy.

The only thing I can hope for is that he's healthy enough to play the point more effectively than Duhon who is pretty ineffective.

I think he'll do a better job than Duhon though so, I'm okay with him returning.
