Steve Blake Discussion: Traded To Warriors

Hm... Blake was guarding someone who took two jumpshots :man10: I remember because I thought well Blake is doing a decent job of contesting this shot.

Thanks for all the info. I honestly couldn't remember the backup PG over there.

I remember an excelent defensive play Blake made stopping a layup/dunk and forcing a jump ball. I don't remember much more, which is probably a good sign that he didn't make many mistakes.
Blake's whole problem is passiveness/hesitation on offense. When he shoots without hesitating he can be great.
"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.

Blake actually crossed up Lillard in one sequence late in the 4th. We scored, but I'm not sure if it was Blake or someone else off his feed because I was shocked he took it to him off the dribble.

I don't think it's doomsday if Blake starts.

When Nash came over did anyone think he'd play 82 games? If you did you were fooling yourself. We all knew that the reality of injuries were real, and any backup we got would have been a stop gap solution. And Blake and Duhon are just that.

There's no reason why a team fielding Kobe, Pau and Dwight couldn't win a game on any given night. Nash isn't stopping CP3, neither are Blake or Duhon. An organized team defense will minimize CP3 from winning the game. If we don't have that, don't blame Blake and think that'll be the answer to the problem.

I'd rather put MWP on CP3 and briefly on Eric Bledsoe if hes out with the 2nd unit. If CP3 is gonna torch MWP let that be. I dont see guys like Willie Green and Matt Barnes doing much with Blake guarding them. Hopefully Brown makes this adjustment.

CP3 will feast off of a plate of Blake.

He played a decent game ... give him credit when it's due ... his production was solid for a backup PG

I thought so too. Too much Steve Black hate even when he plays decently. :disagree:

I'm going to hope for the best. Steve is familiar with the Princeton, so perhaps it will turn out okay.

We need Blake to play well tonight.And if he gets in foul trouble... well... there's always Duhon. Right?

:hoop:

If you asked me a month ago, would I take Nash sitting in favor of Blake as long as Kobe, Dwight and Pau were playing against this Clippers team, I would take that order with a side of route....what the hell happened over the course of this last month?

Oh that's right...Mike Brown happened! :bang:

Steve Blake is better suited to a system. Nash is better suited to being Nash. Once they got Nash they should have adjusted but Brown isn't capable of that.

Props to Blake for playing really well in the first half. His only real major fumble was that ball he lost going to the basket.

Hopefully he can keep this up. I don't think he'll continue playing this well but damn this guy is re-earning my respect the last couple of games.

^^He's playing good and as everyone knows I don't like Blake....

The only downside I see is that, Brown will start playing him at the 2 now. :man11:
