NBAPR Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake has been fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a fan.

Is the NBA for real? :man10:

I thought they were supposed to stop flopping? So much for that. What a joke this league has become. Can't wait till Stern retires although it'll probably be more of the same when Silver takes over as commissioner.


I don't get why you take issue with it.

And what does this have anything to do with flopping? They're entirely separate issues.

Well it's a stupid rule. Fans yell and cuss at players all the time and they got no punishment. Fining a player for this is stupid. Garnett in Boston has cussed at a fan several times and it's been caught on camera and how many times has he been fined?


He's been fined multiple times. Here is a comprehensive list of suspensions. http://www.eskimo.com/~pbender/fines.html

FWIW, Garnett has been fined for wearing his shorts too long.

I think that's awesome that Steve Blake is really getting into it. Not that it's cool to cuss at a fan at all, but it shows that he's not apathetic about the game that some players may seem. :jam2:

i dont know about you guys, but once in a while when i'm in need of a good laugh, i read the first 10 or so pages of this thread when we were all (including myself) so happy that the lakers had acquired blake. talking about how much he's going to help and how good he's going to fit in, etc

fast forward 2 years later and he's being fined 25k for cussing out a fan :man10: oh and his play has been anything but impressive

Well so far in this young season he's played the way we hoped he would play 2 years ago. He seems to have some confidence back.

Hopefully he keeps it up.

35 minutes, 2/10 FG, 2/8 3s, 7 points, 1 assist. :man10:

He passed up so many open shots because he had no confidence, then when he did get wide open shots he couldn't convert. SMH

I honestly rather him shooting and missing than passing up shots.. Kobe kept looking for him because he knows he can knock them down. He didn't tonight, but I don't think that if he's shooting with confidence that will continue. He should be able to shoot 40% from 3 with those looks.

I think Blake is the only player on our team that can't be saved regardless of who our coach is or will be, the system we run or the role he's put in.....

Could have maybe been a closer game if Steve hits his shots, wish we had the real Steve out there, Steve Nash :man12:

Sadly, Steve Blake has always been and will always be a crappy away player.

Last season...
Home: 41.5 FG%, 38.0 3P%
Away: 33.1 FG%, 27.3 3P%

Two seasons ago...
Home: 41.2 FG%, 45.3 3P%
Away: 31.0 FG%, 30.6 3P%

Man I like how this thread got like 8 quick posts when he had really his first bad game. This season he'd been very solid. Last game he puts up a great stat line and this game he struggled.

Now he'll never live up to his contract again. The man had a tough night. Obviously his shot wasn't falling early and if it was maybe things change. Oh well. Tomorrow night he'll have another tough assignment. I'm eager to see how he does.

It's all mental with him.....if he plays that differently on the road.

In any case, I think the ship has sailed, he's proven he can't be counted for anything but a backup role.

Well, we had to have a regression some point down the line. It wasn't that conceivable that Blake could keep up his solid level of play, but for him to fall flat so badly against Utah was rather startling. Solid on defense for essentially the entire season, even against the likes of Chris Paul, Blake was positively annihilated by Mo Williams everywhere on the court, whether on post-ups, drives to the rim, or a simple failure to keep with him going around a screen. On a night in which Utah's frontcourt players were mostly kept in check, Williams helped keep the Jazz offense running and Blake was simply found lacking in this regard. On offense, it was not necessarily the missed threes, which happen from time to time, but the hesitancy that has seeped back into his game, analogous to when he first arrived in L.A. The instance that best illustrates this was when Blake caught the ball with a wide open three, pump faked (!), allowed his defender to close in on him, and ended up passing to Gasol in the corner for a three. For the past few games, that lack of decisiveness had been missing, and Blake will need to excise it again for him to return to being a serviceable rotation player

It was ONE game out of the last THREE that he looked hesitant again. Can you really blame him? After seeing crap effort from some guys, pouting and not getting back by Kobe, and watching Dwight Howard get stripped 5 times?

He wasn't the only one hesitating. In light of the way he's played the REST of the season, I'm giving him an opportunity to prove me wrong tonight before jumping on the "Blake Hate" Bandwagon.

I think it's time to change your name back fkmikebrown, Blake is being outplayed by even Morris.
