This was the first game where he was given any sort of responsibility and he failed that responsibility of making the offense run. He can score well and that's fine, but we tried that last season and it didn't work particularly well.
Obviously Blake isn't ideal either, but I just simply don't trust Goudelock to run an offense.
Whats the point of having Blake if he's gonna leave O'fers across the board? He had one game of 4 assists other than that 2 assists or less in the other 3 preseason games despite playing the most minutes of any of our backup PGs and also playing with the starters.
Horrendous 2011 season
There were also far too many games when the nine-year veteran wouldn't make himself a presence at all. Blake scored two points or less 16 times this season (including going scoreless seven times) and he also had 21 games where he dished out two assists or fewer.
And team defense got worse when he stepped on the floor next to startershttp://www.bdasports.com/how-chris-duhon-will-benefit-the-lakers/
Derek Fisher – 0.98
Ramon Sessions – 1.05
Steve Blake – 1.10
The Lakers starting four performed much worse with Steve Blake than with Fisher or Sessions.
This is particularly bad news considering Derek Fisher was past his prime and Ramon Sessions is not considered as a defensive stopper.
And Blake is now 1 year older and there is no indication he's gonna be any reliable this year. Hes played the most mins of any our backup PGs this preseason and yet hasn't made a single 3 & neither is he producing in any adequate manner on other aspects of the floor. So many red flags with this guy, Im completely done with him
Id rather go with Glock..sure hes not a true "point guard", hes not distributing, at least he's aggressive, at least he spaces the floor, at least he looks to be at threat to pick and roll where if he's open he'll shoot of if he's doubled he'll pass the ball. Blake does nothing except run around and deliver the ball in the spots that where his teammates like which Glock can learn to do over time
