Thanks for the contributions Blake! :jam2: Some guys are welcome back anytime, and I would say he's one of them. I think we've just seen his best days behind him, and that durability will be an issue moving forward. Solid vet.

What really bothers me about this trade is not that we got robbed or anything, its the fact that jim seems to really be building around dantoni. Which means they will draft to fit the needs of his system. That will be a disaster. I REALLY hope he isn't the lakers coach next year.

I think if they were to build around Mike, that Hill would've been traded first. I mean, D'Antoni likes Blake, a lot. Why trade away a PG instead of the bigs that don't "fit your system"?

So do we get a small TPE out of this trade as well? Because the salaries don't match up.

From the looks of it I doubt any of the players involved will be with their new team come next year.

Gets us closer to being under the tax threshold... it's a good thing.

I always liked Blake's attitude and his toughness. He was up and down under Phil and Brown but looked like he had found a home in MDA's system. I hope he continues playing well and helps GS

i'd welcome blake back in the next few years as an assistant coach. he always seemed like a good dude to have on the bench, just always hurt. would have liked to get a 2nd round pick for him but we're super injured and just added a couple of healthy players, so that's not terrible. from what i remember marshon brooks is a decent scorer, maybe he can be our next scrub breakout player of the week

Bye Blake. You've done well as a Lakers. Playing in our system is not easy for you.

Don't like this trade at all...but the silver lining:

He was a D'Antoni guy.
Kevin Ding @KevinDing
D'Antoni had much more love for @Steve Blake, saying about trade: "More disappointed it was him."


Getting rid of a D'Antoni guy could mean that we're getting rid of.... :man13:

I think the FO and Kobe have a pow wow this summer and determine exactly how much D'Antoni hurts/helps the team moving forward and decide whether or not to keep him around.

D'Antoni is great for young guys trying to make it in the League. He's bad for superstars trying to win now. Are we trying to win right now? Depends on who we can get this summer.

Everything is incredibly fluid right now.

Really sad to see Blake go. I liked him, but he was injured wayyyyyyy too much, and he was streaky as hell

Aw man, I really liked Steve. Oh well, I wish him the best up in GS.

Man, this season is the pits. I wish there was a fast forward button I could hit to get it over with.

I'm sorry, IMO, the NBA is not fun or watchable without the Lakers in contention.

It was understandable from the Lakers perspective, Steve Blake will net us few wins, but Lakers need to be suck enough to be at the bottom place to get a great prospect in the draft next year, can't have both I guess. :man5:

Thank for everything Blake, wishing best of luck to you and the family.

Good for the Lakers and for Blake. Blake would be a better fit on a playoff team than playing for a team that isn't going anywhere.

Eh, that's kind of a stupid thing to tweet, makes him look like he's mad at the front office, not a good look. Get over it Kobe, we suck and Blake wasn't helping us win any titles going forward. Look at the big picture and trust them like you just said you do during ASW, and if we can't put together a winning team before he retires it's partly on him and that 48 mil anyway. Kobe's clearly not a good GM.
