blake doesnt fit any system, mannnnnnnnnnnn.
Dude, take off the hater goggles.
Don't understand why some fans refuse to believe that a Laker they don't like is doing well. Don't be a Steve Blake hater before you're a Laker fan.
Blake does fit the system better specifically for what is asked from him. West considering what he can do would be limited in terms of his role and it would make no sense to pay him money to do that when we wouldn't be asking him to do half of what he can and he wouldn't get the minutes he got in Dallas either.
Blake fits the system better with what's asked and has actually been playing well. Stop blindly hating Blake just cause you don't like him. He's a Laker now and he's actually been doing well, so blindly hating him and ignoring when he actually does well is doing nothing to support your team.
I loathed Karl Malone with a passion and wished nothing but the worst for him career wise especially with the things he said about Magic Johnson. But when he was a Laker I gritted my teeth and supported when he did well, because he was on my favorite team. I still don't like the guy, but I supported the success he did have on the Lakers because at that point it didn't matter.
Blake has underachieved his 2 years here, but when he plays well I'm gonna acknowledge it I'm not gonna sit and say "yeah but he sucked for 2 years! So I'm not gonna root now that he actually seems to have found himself" that's just stupid. Why even complain that a guy has been playing bad if you're just gonna keep complaining when they are finally playing good?
If Blake had a good year a majority of people would say "it doesn't make up for terrible years" um.. yes it does, because we aren't living in 2 years ago, if Blake has a good year this year it is another piece that helps us toward a title and that's all where people's minds should be, not on two years ago, but right now, and right now he's playing well and it helps our team, so that's all that matters at this point in time.
And it makes no sense to pay Delonte West extra money to come here and do 30% what he's capable for less minutes than he got in Dallas. . Especially now that we have a full roster and the bench is finally starting to get their roles set.
