I'm shocked that he wasn't amnestied! I hope Mitch knows that Blake is the worst PG on the entire planet. He shouldn't even be in the NBA, or the D League, for that matter. Please sign Nate Robinson aka State of Nate and get rid of this scrub. :jam2:

I love Flynn, always have, ever since his days at Syracuse. Love his heart and tenacity. Don't forget about Nate Robinson, too. Energy guy off the bench who could just light it up on any given night.

Really? You're shocked he hasn't been amnestied? Seriously?

Portland needs a backup PG.

I just went back and read the earlier posts in this thread and I find it hilarious how in less than two years Steve Blake went from our PG savior to worthless scrub. But then again Ramon Sessions went from hero to zero in basically half a year :man10:

So how long will it be before we crucify Steve Nash?

i never wanted blake to come, i always thought of him as a downgrade from farmar.

u just dont think his skills matched what we needed. hes a traditional point guard, he needs the balls in his hands to be effective. he has a good 3pt shot % but thats probably cuz he hardly takes them, even open was. if he hit those open 3s and made them, it would be fine. but he cant and not only that his defensive liability tops it off.



sessions going from hero to zero? and first of all let me say this, i never wanted session on our team, he was never the answer, i mean he helps but i didnt want him. esp when he doesnt have a natural shooting stroke, which is imperative since kobes going to handling it in crunchtimes in which that open 3 ball needs to be made.


sessions was lost imo, he didnt know whether to play his way, or to defer to kobe, but it was obvious mike brown didnt help at all. and it was his first time in the play offs and i didnt expect anything, i would of been surprised if we won it all with that horrible back court we have minus kobe.

sessions would of been perfect for us playing behind nash and playing aside meeks, but as a starting point guard, hell to the no.

While Blake is sometimes frustrating..... He's not that bad of a backup. I think the complaining was magnified because he was backing up Fisher...... for most of the season. But Behind Nash, I expect him to just come in, play D, hit a couple of threes, and sit back down. I know we're overpaying him for what he does... but we could have worse.

Well then that's cool.

In all honesty, I like Blake. I just don't think he's a very good basketball player. He can't get much worse, so I expect him to get a little better this season.

I also think he will be better...no pressure anymore with Nash around, I believe he will flourish. He has no competition for the back up role though.

Sometimes, I don't even blame Blake. I think Mike Brown must be kookoo, but he keeps putting Blake on bigger and stronger guys that he has no shot of defending. The only thing the Blake needs to do is drive in more, and try to score inside...this will help balance his game. The defender needs to know that there is a threat to penetrate and score.

Unfortunately he does. His competition is Duhon. :scurred:

Except that he's going to be backing up Nash and his bad back this season so those minutes are probably only going to be increased.

Either Blake or Duhon :scurred:

I'm not a Blake hater, but he's probably going to be one our biggest problems this season Fart™

I disagree.

The biggest problems I had with Blake were a) too many minutes and b) he was not aggressive enough.

His too many minutes resulted from him being our backup PG AND our backup SG. Remember him playing with Sessions? Or even worse, with Derek? That's not going to happen anymore. We have a legitimate backup SG in Meeks. The kid started in a lot of games for Philadelphia, he'll be a very good backup to Kobe. Blake will be Nash's backup and even if Nash plays only 30 minutes a game, that's 18 minutes a game left for Blake, and that's still a few minutes less than what he did last season. He'll play a little less in a role he's more suited for.

The second problem however may still be a problem. I don't know why, but ever since he's been a Laker he's been very passive. His shooting comes and goes, but part of that is because he rarely takes the open shot. I don't really understand why, but he almost never shoots the ball when he's open. He takes a lot of bailout shots from distance because of lack of movement and double teams down low. I'm hopeful that playing with Nash will loosen him up a bit and having our bench guys get out in transition may help too.

Blake can't get a whole lot worse, so this season I expect him to get just a bit better. It'll help that he only plays backup PG now.

^Wowww you're right. I didn't realize Blake averaged over 23min per game last season. His stats are even worse than I thought if he played that many minutes, and that's all he could muster.

That's horrific.
