Blake can't get a whole lot worse, so this season I expect him to get just a bit better. It'll help that he only plays backup PG now.
this theory has been proven wrong over 2 seasons now, i actually do think he can get worse, much worse cause now he's afraid to shoot. At least his 1st yr he took the open shot, now all he does is over pass and takes a shot as last resort most of the time.
Sorry, but you're wrong. Blake's first season here he shot much less than his second. In 2011 he shot 3.9 times per game, in 2012 he shot 5.1 times per game. He shot 2.4 three pointers in 2011 and 3.0 three pointers in 2012. Even taking into account he shot more his second season than his first.
He averaged nearly the same assist/turnover ratio in 2012 compared to 2011, 2.34 and 2.4 respectively. Incidentally that ratio isn't crazy far from his career average of 2.79 assists to turnovers. Definitely worse, but not a ton worse.
The only thing he did significantly worse last season than any of his other seasons was his 3 point percentage which dropped from about 37% to about 33%, but like you said he was forced to take a lot of bailout shots. His percentage from 3 on spot up opportunities according to synergy sports was actually closer to 36%. Not amazing, but not bad either.
