I'm looking forward to how he performs when Kobe returns. He won't be the ball dominance that he is this season.

This is the offense for Steve Blake plain and simple. Open floor, lots of shooters, lots of control.

The Triangle was a disaster for him. Brown was equally a disaster. But when you add a few athletic guys, a few shooters, and give him control he's looked great. Not to mention having more than him as a perimeter defender makes him look a lot better. He's not consistently over-matched.

Absolutely. Blake got totally lost in the Triangle. And let's not even mention the "Princeton" stuff... ugh.

He's a smart PG, who takes care of the ball and is constantly probing. He is unselfish and will often make the right pass. Plays hurt -- and still gets results. MDA definitely extended his career.

Steve Blake looks more pissed in his post game interview than I've ever seen, wow he was fuming. He was giving Ireland on sentence answers, a lot of "I don't know" and angry blank stares.

My guess is because he went from awesome PG to spot up shooter, we lost, and Ireland asked about his 4 turnovers.

I love this guy. He isn't happy and he doesn't smile off games we should of won. I really think with Kobe back Black needs to move to running the second unit. Bring Jodi Meeks back in as the shooter and let Blake do what he should be doing running a team.

Blake had every right to be upset. He should be handling the PG Duties. Point Blank. There's no reason for Kobe to handle the bulk of ball-handling when Blake has played good basketball. This responsibility falls on our head to sort these things out...and, unfortunately, MDA just thrive in player relational skills.

I get that he's the Blake Mamba, but I doubt the death stare works on Ireland.

Seriously though, why so mad, Steve?

Yep. This Steve Blake as a SG idea should have been killed a long time ago. It does not work offensively or defensively.

I would of thought. Let Blake or whoever is pg handle the ball. Kobe should either spot up. Cut to the basket. Post up if it comes to it. But Blake is a pg and he's been ok to good at it. Let him do his job and it'll make moves easier

Let him play the point, no need for this SG BS :bang: I realy don't care about Kobe channeling his inner Magic and stuff. He'll give us 10+ assists on some ocassions but more often than that, he'll over pass and make way too many TO's. Let Blake play/do what he does best damn it :man2:

I wish he punched company man Ireland with his useless questions .

As for Kobe letting a PG do his thing... good luck with that

He'll have to adjust to Kobe being back. Can't play that Nash Phoenix Suns role anymore and rack up 10+ assists a night when Kobe has the ball alot. He shot terribly so I hope his elbow injury gets better SOON bc we need him to make those shots that he seems to get wide open for alot.

Can't wait for Farmar to be back and go HAM with the bench. Blake has been playing well so this game I'll let slide as there was a lot of bad play all around esp. for the starters

It's not about Blake adjusting to Kobe. It's about Mike D'Antoni playing Blake at SG.

He's not a SG. Period. If you're going to give Blake minutes with Kobe trying to play PG, give him the backup PG position.

One of the players who struggled to find his rhythm in Bryant's return was Steve Blake, as he failed to register five assists or more for just the fifth time all season (finishing with four) and also scored fewer than five points for just the third time (finishing with three on 1-for-6 shooting) against the Toronto Raptors.

"It will be a little bit of a challenge, but I was [playing off the ball] in the beginning of the year when [Steve] Nash was playing," Blake said. "I'm going to have to try to get comfortable with that situation again, hopefully sooner than later."

Blah, not a fan of Blake off the ball, he was garbage to start the season because he had to do that. His shot was off then and that's all he was being allowed to do so he looked useless. Now in recent games when his shot is off he was putting up 10 assists a game, so it hardly mattered. Now it's off again because of his wrist injury, yet it's all he's being allowed to do. If you want a 2 guard out there make it Meeks, put Kobe at PG if he wants that role, and let Blake run the bench unit by himself so he's not a wasted spot up shooter. Is it just me or is it not that complicated?

I feel that Famar is down so it makes ridiculous amount of sense to have him lead the 2nd unit. Play Kob as the facilitator of the 1st unit. Any unit with Pau and Kobe will be a slower team that wants to control the tempo.

Then release the dogs with Blake and the 2nd unit.
