Say what you want about Blake.

His return improves our current backcourt.

He is better than Morris and Duhan. Why are you guys mad?

Yeah, less Duhon is a plus.

Granted, it'll take a little while for Blake to get in game shape...but Duhon is an absolute mess IMO, so I'm more than willing to wait.

No...don't get me wrong, Morris shouldn't get any PT from here on out (unless his defense becomes mandatory if our other guards decide not to play it).

But Duhon should be relegated to 3rd string, at best, and he should never see the court unless it's a blowout.

Seeing that he will return makes me happy. Don't get me wrong, he's not good, but at least better than what we have (Morris/Duhon)

Blake isn't any better than Duhon and Morris he is slightly better than, mainly because Blake knows he sucks, Morris hasn't figured that out yet.

He should provide slightly better defense than Duhon but that's about it. Shooting will be a push if we're lucky and assists will probably actually get worse.

Cleared for 2 on 2, exellent.

Bump this when he's cleared to be trade-eligible

Blake is not a better scorer or defender than Morris. But at least he might bring less TO that's the big difference. If he can make 1 or 2 3s a game that would be wonderful.

Big whoop... He will be rusty like hell, so I doubt he is any upgrade over Duhon or Morris at this point as bad as those 2...

He was mostly useless before, that won't change anytime soon...

im glad hes coming back. he will pretty much bring the same production that duhon or morris brings maybe a little more but also brings that scrappy d and "not gunna back down" mentality. he plays hard and although shots may not fall or gets staggered screened like 3 times in a row but he never gives up. he can hit the 3 and guys will slag off of him if kobe continues to play the facilitator role he has been and looks to attack on post ups too. that balance is keep and past 2 games he done it perfectly. blake with him when nash gets rest will be good.

he may be rusty but i think a hornets game is a better game than any to start and get the rust off.

It remains to be seen how his conditioning is but I'm certain once he gets in game shape he'll provide more than Duhon or Morris have.

I think his conditioning will be fine, its getting the game speed and timing back that will take a few games.

Duhon hasn't been great but anyone who expects or thinks Blake is gona be better might be sadly surprised. While Duhon isn't a great defender Blake is only marginally better and Duhon actually knows how to get into the paint and create, something I hardly ever see out of Blake. Only good thing out of Blake is better spot up shooting and thats only if he isn't hesitating on his shot.

Mike D'Antoni says Steve Blake definitely will play vs. Hornets, but wouldn't say how many minutes or if he'll be main backup behind Nash

No backup 2 minutes please. That is all I ask.

Backup 2 should just have a seat with Meeks' name on it.

It's about time we trade or waive Morris and trade away Duhon. Those guys are basically useless, and I'd trade Duhon along with Ebanks for a bag a chips at this point.

I'm not excited about Blake's return. Although, he might be an upgrade over Duhon which is just incredibly sad. Man, we need a capable backup PG...

Not excited at all. I have seen 2.5 years of Blake getting exposed on the floor.

He is the same as Duhon, useless. But Duhon is a solid 3 point shooter which Blake is not. He is just not when you go by the numbers as a Laker.
