If the criteria is defense, then Duhon will be starting soon.

More on Blake "earning" the spot + a couple more quotes.
Ramona Shelburne of ESPN wrote:After playing musical chairs with the backup point guard spot throughout the preseason, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown said Saturday that veteran Steve Blake has taken the lead for the role.

"Obviously I played Blake more as of late," Brown said. "He'll get the first crack at it. Guys like [Chris] Duhon and [Darius] Morris have to stay professional and stay ready. Their number can be called at any time."

Asked what Blake, who served as the Lakers primary back-up last season, had done during camp to earn the role, Brown said, "He had a little bit of an advantage because he was in the system last year. So he's got a good feel on what we want to do on both ends of the floor. It was close.”

"It's not set in stone, but we felt he played a little bit better as of late when he had an opportunity,” Brown said. “He had more of an opportunity than Duhon. That's just the direction we wanted to go. It's not like he did this a lot better than this guy or the next guy.

“My backup point guard first needs to defend, second get the team organized and third not turn the ball over. You start putting icing on the cake or adding ice cream to your cake and if he can score and/or shoot, that's a bonus."

His explanation is awful :man10: . Blake organizes the team just fine. But he doesn't defend well at all and he certainly doesn't not turn the ball over.

At least not this pre-season. He was a turnover machine!

Note to Mike Brown. The purpose of an explanation is to clarify why you made a decision. Your "explanation" above doesn't provides clarity at all and only further degrades your already poor image as a coach and a leader.

Mike Brown really isn't the sharpest tool in the shed is he? To me he just keeps saying and doing dumber things by the minute. How in the world can you look at tape of what Blake did this preseason and say that he played better D than Duhon and deserves the backup position over him? This guy is just completely clueless.

Brown reminds me of these students who learn everything by heart because they don't understand the big picture and can't analyse ish ...

Each time he's talking , it sounds like he's reciting something

In 2 years and this preseason, I have yet to see it happen. 2 years older and we're supposed to believe Blake is ballin'. Show it on the court in a REAL game.

Is this the same "PlayerX impresses coaches in practice" BS we've already heard before? They already tried that with Morris. Looks like they're trying to trade Blake ASAP.

@LakersReporter But Mike his play hasn't showed up during game play tho.. He's kinda like Sasha when he was a Laker.. A practice player

@RickDaSequel - Just relaying the info; you're right that games will be where he's judged this year.

Yeah, but the only 3 pointer that we remember is the one he misses in the corner to win the game when Metta found him wide open after Westbrook made a defensive mistake :bang: :bang: :mad1:

Those numbers are extremely misleading. First 4 preseason games he played 55 minutes total and went 0 for 4 from 3s. Last 3 games went 5 for 7. Hes hot or cold. More cold

In the playoffs last year shot well vs Denver 46.7% from 3s in 1st round. vs OKC in 2nd round 31% Hes extremely inconststent

Honestly, the ones I remember most were the ones he drilled against Denver.

Never seen a veteran PG kill a shot clock with overdribbling like Blake.

He must be killin' in practice, getting wide open shots and just deciding it's better to not shoot it.
