Default Steve Blake trying to add arch to his shot

He's trying to raise that J higher in the air, especially after shooting lots of bricks last season.

Skim-read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=8082

What's your take on Blake, and how he fits in with the Lakers?

Gotta love that lockout.

But to the topic... I thought Blake was literally the perfect PG for Phil Jackson and the triangle offense... but if he couldn't play well in that, I don't think he'll do well under Mike Brown's iso offense (or lack there of).

They overpaid for him thinking he'd be effective in the Triangle. I dont know how he'll do under Mike Brown, but he definetly isnt worth what they're paying him when hes at best a journeyman PG. He really should hope that Darius Morris doesnt learn how to fix his shot before he does, because Morris is poised to take his job.

Unreleated but I heard he got destroyed in the Drew Summer League. Im sure that didnt sit too well with the basketball crowd out in LA watching a Laker play like shit in streetball.

This will end up being like Jose Bautista changing his grip/swing and becoming the best player in his sport.

Steve Blake will score 33 ppg, on 50/40/90 next year. MVP all the way.

Hopefully he gets rid of that hitch in his jump shot, which he mysteriously added when he joined the Lakers. Hopefully he relaxes, plays his game, and doesn't turn the ball over like 10 consecutive times.

Has anybody else noticed that Blake is an absolute beast in 2K11? I dropped 35 points with him last night.

I'd say you are playing on rookie level or similar.

Blake's 3 and release is so money in that game.

Never use the Lakers, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.
