Let's not forget his bright moments though, he hit some Important 3's last year when the Lakers were in close games, and I have yet to see Duhon step up in a pressured game 7 like Blake did when he hit 6-7 3's against the Nuggets.

Blake should get few minutes, and he should definitely play the 1, where he is actually semi-useful. Yes, we need a new backup soon. Someone young to split the minutes with Nash.

I would not mind getting Avery Bradley, kinda reminds me off a Blodsoe clone both are athletic defenders.

There's no way we're getting Bradley from the Cs. They honestly think he can become their franchise player.

That is absurd, Bradley is a rotational player, he gives the Celtics quality defensive minutes and gets good steals but to call him a franchise player is like calling Deandre Jordan a franchise player and DJ and Bradley are basically the same kind of player with different height.

no part of me ever liked the Blake signing, but he was at some point a very good back up PG. MDA has said how much he's liked and tried to acquire him. Until I see him play, I won't say I'm dissapointed because bottom line is that he's better than Duhon and Morris. Ideally, Bradley or Bledsoe would be our backup but Blake is IMO going to make a bigger impact than Duhon.

Exactly, but they're so high on him that it will be very difficult to obtain him.

Expect Blake to play limited minutes to start at either backup PG or off the ball if LAL need his floor spacing/D (he can guard many 2’s).

What am I missing here?

I seriously read stuff like this and feel like I haven't watched a game in the last 2+ years.

He can guard them, but can he be successful too?

Yeah I can guard NBA sized SGs too.

I can't guard them well, but I can guard them. Sure.

Blake getting minutes over Meeks.. I can see it now. I would be all for him coming back if he was just benching Duhon/Morris.

in less than a week, we'll be complaining about all the minutes Blake is getting...even if he's only playing 5mins

I thought the same, but frankly... the alternative is Morris, so I don't think I'll complain much. You know... Blake doesn't generally do anything stupid on the court. He's just kinda... there.

Can anyone please appreciate Steve Blake for at least saving us in Game 7 against the Nuggets last year? If it wasn't for him we would have been bounced out of the 1st round. he also saved us many times during the regular season last year including the Lakers/OKC game late April.

D'Antoni has high regard for him soooo he'll get good minutes assuming he stays intact on and off the floor.

Why is that relevant now?

Should I post like this from now on....

Steve Blake had an awful game.

(Disclaimer - Thank you Steve for saving us in a 1st round game we should have never been in, you made a couple of plays here and there throughout your career here, none bigger then missing the wide open 3 vs. OKC in the 2nd round last year, thanks for all your contributions. You've raised so much awareness for spike strips around the world, I'm breaking out into chicken pox just thinking about it. Ohh and good luck in future games Steve, break a rib out there. )

True, but so what?

Gasol literally gave us the edge we needed to win 2 Championships in a row and go to the Finals 3 times in a row, but we beat on that guy relentlessly.

Blake's average performances are probably the worst among Laker PGs over the course of our team's history.
