mad we got rid of glock though. could you imagine him out there with nash. cant be worse on d anyways. plus meeks shooting bad nights maybe glock can help him out with some 3's of his own. and his drives actually give us points with his floater. hes ruling the dleague and has nba games under his belt scoring double figures in many of them at a high %

Duhon is playing like garbage recently... Blake would be a good upgrade.

In MDA's system, I think he'd thrive.

Duhon isn't good because he isn't playing any consistent minutes. Same with Morris. If either one gets 20 minutes consistently, they out-perform Blake at least 7 times in 10 games.


I don't believe that for even a second

For what it's worth MDA has said this a few times since being here that he has always loved, wanted him on his teams, and thought Blake's game would be a match made in heaven with his system.

Does Blake become a + when he returns?

More depth & can't deny his "playmaking" is superior to Morris & Duhon's. Other aspects of his game, not so much.

Blake should've been amnestied awhile back.

I think so. People continuosly bash him, and most of it is justified, but he is still a way better option than Morris, and most times Duhon.

Don't forget he's been a 40% 3 pt shooter for us this season while taking a good amount of them. He still has some redeeming qualities

I want to see him in MDA's system. He might be able to knock down some threes... but he'll be so slow and rusty when he comes back.

u say that now, probably forgot the hesistation to shoot, the no creating for others or just overall passive nature of his game.

I don't think I've seen a stretch during which Blake played as well as Duhon did when Nash was out in his Lakers tenure .

In his Lakers tenure, Blake has never been a starter in a PG-dominant offensive system.

I love how every garbage player that gets hurt...after a few weeks everybody wants to see him back and already envision how he can help and so forth...

the truth is the following...Blake can't shoot consistently, can't drive, can't score, can't defend, doesn't have speed, athleticism, strength or leaping ability...there is nothing to work with, regardless of the system.

When has Blake ever shown signs of anything great that you want to see that particular ability to get unleashed? I really can't remember anything. Even guys like Jordan Farmar etc. showed glimpses of their abilities even while playing in the triangle. Blake has never ever shown anything. He has also never ever been a starter for any team for an extended period of time. A journey man that has struggled with consistency for his entire career.

A player that has career averages of 6.9 points and 3.9 assists, in 25 mpg and on 40% shooting. Those are raw facts and they suggest that he sucks. Most backups in the NBA easily give you those numbers when playing 25 mpg. Hell, even Darius Morris might give you that along with better defense and he is already considered dreadful offensively.

This is a factor , no doubt about it ..I think Blake could have Duhon like games assists wise with the same PT

His shortcomings on O are the same as Duhon ones though so when the opponent D doesn't overreact (rightfully so) to his penetration off the PNR , his lack of midrange game and ability to finish at the rim are a pb.

I wouldn't expect a huge boost, if any at all, going from Duhon to Blake for limited minutes at the backup PG

I'm not saying that D'antoni's system is going to turn Blake into a good player. I'm saying D'antoni's system and a starting role is the only reason Duhon looked decent. In actuality, Duhon is terrible and we're seeing that now that he's playing with the bench. Yes, Blake sucks. I'm not disputing that. I just think he'll suck slightly less than Duhon.

I still prefer Duhon to Blake as backup PG to Nash. He's less hesitant to shoot the open three and he's very in control out there as far as running the offense. Blake is a better defender though. Duhon's D, especially his help D has been kind of rough. Even with that said, I'd rather stick with him. Moot point right now obviously.
