I read on a blog somewhere that his wife tweeted that we shouldn't judge or mock him without knowing the full story, but when I clicked the link it looks like she deleted the tweet (and I didn't care enough to spend 5 seconds to Google her lol).

^I'm really hoping one of these Darius' step up and provide something unique at that position and maybe even challenge Blake and Duhon. Anyways, you're right; We should be fine...

I'm not necessarily mocking, but I mean c'mon lady what do you expect? :man10:

There's BOUND to be questions about something so bizzare. He might as well have said a piano fell on his foot.

He said I am healing great and I'm cleared to use my heel now and start spot shooting. I'll be playing again in no time. Can't wait.

So really, aside from the whole "I got distracted by someone calling my name", he really did just step on a spike strip?

Steve Blake explains how he stepped on a parking lot spike

By Mark Medina
October 1, 2012, 3:29 p.m.

As he headed toward his truck barefoot in a Manhattan Beach parking lot, Lakers guard Steve Blake turned his head.

Somebody called his name and Blake looked up. At that instant, Blake stepped on a spike strip that left a puncture in his left foot, an incident he described as an "unfortunate situation."

"When you step on something like that, it's pretty painful," Blake said. "All the blood made me realize something was wrong. It's unfortunate. You move past it and go from there."

Blake arrived at media day Monday at the team's practice facility in El Segundo in full uniform -- and wearing shoes. He didn't show any limitation when he walked to the various photo shoots and interview sessions. Blake said doctors have cleared him for spot using drills.

Nonetheless, Blake said that "cutting, anything that causes friction will open the wound up." Hence, Blake will be limited for at least three weeks.

That will open up the backup shooting guard spot to Chris Duhon and Darius Morris. It could inhibit any progress Blake hoped to make after showing more consistency shooting in last season's playoffs. But Blake remained optimistic the return won't be difficult because he he learned Eddie Jordan's Princeton offense when he played with the Washington Wizards from 2004 to 2006.

"The pain is not too bad right now," Blake said. "It's still a little sensitive on my heel. But I'm healing well and healing fast. I'm on track to get back."
